DID YOU KNOW THAT 98% OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS RESULT IN INJURIES TO THE MOTORCYCLIST?
This astounding statistic come from the major traffic safety study known as the Hurt Report. The Hurt Report also found that over two thirds of motor vehicle collisions involving motorcycles are the fault of the motor vehicle and not of the motorcycle.
Unfortunately, the general public perception seems to be just the opposite: that the majority of collisions involving motorcycles are the result of the motorcycle operator. If you are a motorcyclist involved in a collision, consider contacting an experienced personal injury attorney immediately. Your attorney will take the appropriate steps to preserve any evidence that might be important to establishing who is at fault for the accident.
