According to the NHTSA, deaths and injuries from motorcycle accidents are on the rise across the country. In fact, on a number of miles ridden basis, a motorcycle rider is approximately thirty-five times more likely to be involved in a traffic accident than someone traveling in an automobile.
Because a motorcycle operater is not afforded the same protection that a person operating an automobile has, people who are injured in motorcycle accidents often sustain severe and life changing injuries and sometimes even death. Helmet use is an important safety concern for the motorcyclist. The NHTSA estimates that helmets are thirty-seven percent effective in preventing fatalities from motorcycle accidents. That means that out of every one-hundred motorcyclie operators who were involved in an accident while not wearing a helmet, thirty-seven would still be alive if they all had worn helmets.
Many insurance companies teach their adjusters to offer as little as possible to settle your personal injury claim in order to maximize their profits. Insurance adjusters often try to blame the motorcyclist for being partially at fault for the accident, when usually it is the driver of the automobile that was distracted or did not see the motorcyclist and is the one who is responsible for causing the accident.
