Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle riders are at a much higher risk of being injured in an accident due to the lack of protection that their vehicle offers them. Motorcycles are much smaller than cars and trucks, making them less visible to other motorists on the road. Additionally, motorcycles do not offer the same level of protection as other vehicles. A motorcyclist can easily be thrown from their bike or pinned under another vehicle in the event of an accident, which can cause serious and life-threatening injuries.

Some of the most common injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident include:

  • Head trauma and traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Severe road rash
  • Internal organ damage
  • Crush injuries
  • Biker's arm

Motorcycle accident injuries often require extensive medical treatment and care. In some cases, a motorcyclist may be left with permanent disabilities that prevent them from returning to work or enjoying the same quality of life as before. Our Durham motorcycle accident attorneys can help you seek compensation for all your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. We are dedicated to helping you recover the maximum compensation you are owed.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are often caused by driver negligence, including:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Drugged driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Failure to stop at a red light or stop sign
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Opening a car door into traffic

In some cases, a motorcycle accident is caused by a defective motorcycle or motorcycle part. If a manufacturer produces a motorcycle or motorcycle part that is defective and causes an accident, the manufacturer can be held liable for any resulting injuries. For example, if a motorcycle's brakes fail and cause the rider to crash into a car, the manufacturer may be liable for the rider's injuries.

Motorcycle Laws in North Carolina

Motorcycle riders in North Carolina are required to follow the state's motorcycle laws. These laws are in place to help reduce the risk of accidents and injuries on the road. All motorcycle riders and passengers must wear an approved helmet at all times. The helmet must be properly secured and meet the safety standards set by the Department of Transportation.

Motorcyclists are also required to have a valid motorcycle endorsement on their driver's license. In order to obtain a motorcycle endorsement, a rider must pass a written test, an on-cycle skills test, and a vision test. Additionally, all motorcycles must be equipped with the proper safety equipment, including a working headlight, taillight, and turn signals.

Motorcyclists are entitled to the same rights and privileges as other motorists on the road. Unfortunately, other drivers often fail to treat motorcyclists with the respect they deserve, which can result in serious accidents and injuries. If you or someone you love was injured in a motorcycle accident, our attorneys can help you seek compensation for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
