North Carolina Motorcycle Accident Attorney

If you or someone you love has suffered a serious motorcycle accident injury, you should consult a North Carolina motorcycle accident attorney to discuss your legal rights to compensation. At Lanier Law Group, P.A. our skilled legal team has been protecting the rights of injured clients for many years.

As a motorcycle affords no protection for a rider, even a minor collision between a truck or a passenger vehicle, and a motorcycle can result in severe or fatal injuries for a motorcyclist. Less experienced riders are more likely to have serious accidents as they lack the skills to avoid collisions or even recognize dangerous situations and reckless vehicle drivers. The most common type of motorcycle accident is the "failure to yield." By investigation, many drivers have a "blind spot" and are not aware of bicyclists, scooter riders, and motorcyclists sharing the road. Too often after an accident, the vehicle operator will admit that he or she simply didn't see the motorcycle before it was too late.

This lack of perception by drivers has caused countless severe or fatal injuries, even at slower speeds. Due to the blind spot and a failure to ensure that it is safe to change lanes, a vehicle operator could make a turn into the path of an oncoming motorcycle, fail to stop, causing a rear-end collision, or other similar dangerous situation.

Common types of accidents our firm handles include:

  • DUI motorcycle accidents
  • Failure to yield
  • Freeway motorcycle accidents
  • Off-road motorcycle accident
  • Dangerous road conditions leading to motorcycle accidents
  • U-turn motorcycle accidents
  • Lane change motorcycle accidents
  • Intersection motorcycle accidents
  • Rear-end motorcycle accidents
  • Head-on collisions
  • Motorcycle and a fixed object accident
  • Multi-vehicle accidents involving a motorcycle
  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Defective product motorcycle accidents
