What Are the Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

Motorcycle accidents can occur for many reasons, but many are caused by the negligence of others on the road. When this happens, the injured biker can file a personal injury claim against the responsible party. In order to be successful in a personal injury claim, the injured biker must show that the other party was negligent in some way, and that this negligence was a direct cause of the accident.

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Driver inattention
  • Failure to yield
  • Following too closely
  • Failure to signal
  • Illegal turns
  • Unsafe lane changes

When a driver engages in these or other careless actions, they can easily collide with a motorcyclist, causing serious injuries. Some of the most common injuries that result from motorcycle accidents include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones.

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers who simply do not see the motorcyclist. This is often because they are not paying attention to the road, and are not looking out for motorcycles. In these cases, the driver can be held liable for the accident, and can be ordered to pay damages to the injured biker.

What is the Helmet Law in Greensboro?

North Carolina has a specific helmet law that applies to motorcyclists. According to this law, all motorcyclists must wear helmets that meet the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. In addition to this, motorcyclists must also wear eye protection if their bike is not equipped with a windshield.

It is important to note that, even if you were not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, you can still recover compensation from the negligent driver. However, you should be aware that the insurance company will likely try to argue that your failure to wear a helmet contributed to the severity of your injuries.

Does Greensboro Have Lane Splitting Laws?

In North Carolina, lane splitting is illegal. Lane splitting occurs when a motorcyclist drives between two lanes of traffic that is moving in the same direction. This is extremely dangerous and can easily lead to an accident. If you are caught lane splitting, you can be charged with reckless driving.

How Much Is My Greensboro Motorcycle Accident Claim Worth?

One of the most common questions we are asked by our clients is how much their motorcycle accident claim is worth. This is a complex question that is difficult to answer without a thorough review of the facts of the case. However, you can rest assured that our attorneys will do everything we can to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to the following damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Property damage

It is important to note that, in order to recover these damages, you must prove that you suffered a loss as a result of the accident. Our attorneys can help you gather the evidence you need to prove your damages, and can also help you calculate the value of your claim.

Can I Still Recover Compensation If I Was Partially at Fault for the Accident?

In North Carolina, you can still recover compensation for your injuries even if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, your damages will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you were 10% at fault, your damages would be reduced by 10%. If you were more than 50% at fault, you will be barred from recovering any compensation.

Why Do I Need a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

Motorcycle accident claims can be complex, and it can be difficult to determine who is at fault for the accident. Insurance companies know this, and will often try to take advantage of injured bikers by offering them a lowball settlement. In order to protect your rights, you should speak to an attorney as soon as possible after a motorcycle accident.

Our Greensboro motorcycle accident lawyers are experienced litigators who are not afraid to take your case to court. We have the skills and resources to effectively represent you both in and out of the courtroom, and will do everything we can to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.

    "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.
