Motorcycle Accident Studies & Statistics — a listing of motorcycle accident studies, statistics, and causes at our own research website HURT911®
Why Drivers Don’t See Motorcycles — There are more reasons than you think!
Which Vehicle Struck First? Don’t believe it’s your fault because your motorcycle struck a car or truck!
Is a double-parked vehicle the cause of your accident?
Wrongful Death — In the event of the death of a motorcyclist, we can provide free legal services for estate work and guardianship proceedings if there are children.
Left Turns — When a car makes a left turn into the path of your motorcycle, we’ll gather the evidence to prove the car is 100% at fault.
The rider of this motorcycle was hit by a car which made a left turn and struck the motorcycle. Cars making a left turn seem to be the most common cause of motorcycle accidents because drivers just aren’t programmed to look for motorcycles.
Backing out of a driveway or parking spot — Don’t expect drivers to see you when they are backing out of a driveway or parking spot! Parking lots are also dangerous for motorcycles.
We won an award of $100,000 for a motorcyclist who injured his thumb when he put his motorcycle down to avoid hitting a car backing out of this parking spot.
Hit & Run — The rider of this Ducati was hit by a car which left the accident scene. Uninsured claims require contact with another vehicle, and this tiny streak of blue paint on the chrome exhaust was the evidence that proved contact.
This proved the point of contact on the front fender of our client’s Harley with a car
Cut Off — This was a motorcycle accident in Queens, NY. The photo was taken by the motorcyclist, who, of course, was more concerned about his motorcycle! New York City Police can be seen investigating the motorcycle accident. This photo of this motorcycle accident is the image used for the header image.
Lane Change — Another frequent motorcycle accident is when a car changes lanes
Hit in the Rear — When your motorcycle is hit in the rear, the car is 100% at fault.
Dooring — When someone opens a car door in front of your motorcycle, it’s usually 100% the fault of the person who opened the car door.
Road Rage — Yes, some drivers don’t like motorcyclists and will actually try to hurt you! We’ll go after them!
No Contact — When your motorcycle doesn’t contact the car which caused your accident.
Taxis are known for aggressive and careless driving. When a taxi causes your motorcycle accident, you want a lawyer who loves motorcyclists and suing taxis!
