Montana Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Work With Attorneys Who Understand the Nuances of Motorcycle Cases

Bike Accident Motorcycle accident litigation differs quite a lot from car accident cases. First, your attorney has to neutralize the widespread assumption that the motorcyclist was probably riding irresponsibly, first with the claims adjuster and later perhaps with a trial jury. Next, the serious injuries typical of a motorcycle crash mean that you might well have to find sources of compensation in addition to the other driver's insurance coverage.

We are able to reach the scene of a motorcycle accident with a team of investigators anywhere in the state right away. Our senior investigator is an experienced motorcycle rider who knows what to look for in both the physical evidence and the police reports. Our advice in the immediate aftermath of a serious accident can go far to preserve essential evidence and protect your interests in a fair settlement or jury award.

Common Causes of Fatal Motorcycle Accidents

Although riding a motorcycle can be fun and entertaining, it is also a dangerous activity. A rider exposes him or herself to many risks, one of them being negligent drivers. Unfortunately, when a negligent driver collides with a motorcyclist, there are only a few protections offered, such as a helmet and protective clothing, which do not always prevent fatal injuries.

In order to understand how motorcycle accidents occur, it is essential to be aware of some of their common causes, which includes:

  • Sudden Turns into the Path of a Motorcyclist - this frequently happens when a driver fails to yield the right-of-way or misjudges the speed of an oncoming biker.
  • Head-On Collisions - such events could be the cause of various negligent activities, such as distracted driving, and is the most likely to result in fatalities.
  • Reckless Motorcyclists - these types of accidents typically occur when motorcyclists partake in actions such as lane splitting, riding under the influence, taking a corner too fast, or speeding.

When an individual is lost to a fatal motorcycle accident it is important to understand the cause. Further investigation could help establish responsibility for the crash, which may then be translated into legal liability. This could provide many answers to surviving family members of a deceased motorcyclist, and it may help pave the way for them to recover compensation through a wrongful death claim.
