Representing Injured Motorcycle Riders

Despite helmets, jackets and other protective gear, any kind of collision with a car, SUV or truck will result in devastating consequences for motorcyclists.

At the Cossé Law Firm, we handle all legal aspects of your case while you focus on healing and getting your life back on track.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorists have an obligation to be alert and vigilant of other vehicles and practice safe techniques at all times. However, the majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers of motor vehicles.

More than half of motorcycle accident fatalities are the result of head-on collisions. When a motor vehicle strikes a motorcycle from the front, it results in death around 80% of the time. Another common type of accident occurs when car drivers make left-hand turns and when motorcyclists drive between two lanes during traffic.

Common acts of negligence include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Failure to make a complete stop before a stoplight turns red
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Failure to yield right-of-way to motorcyclists

Whether you have suffered a serious brain injury, broken bones, or a spinal cord injury, you need compensation.
