Any motor vehicle accident can result in serious or catastrophic injuries. Motorcycle accidents, in particular, tend to cause severe injury because motorcyclist lack the protection of a car or truck. Common injuries include: wrist injuries; fractures; amputation of limb(s); head injuries; and spinal cord injuries.
Driving a motorcycle while intoxicated is very common and extremely dangerous to the driver and others. Statistics show the percentage of intoxicated motorcyclists in fatal accidents is greater than the percentage of intoxicated automobile drivers. This is why NHTSA urges all motorcyclists to always drive smart and sober. Victims of motorcycle accidents and the families of victims who have unfortunately died in serious accidents must deal with a very challenging situation. This type of accident can be extremely demanding because of difficult insurance companies and determination of negligence.

No matter what the amount may be, it is in your best interest to contact a lawyer who specializes in motorcycle accidents. A lawyer you can trust will put your needs before the insurance company.
