Motorcycle riders are at a higher risk of experiencing a traffic accident caused by road hazards, when compared to other vehicles. Small bumps on the road, potholes, rocks, branches, and minor oil spills can all contribute to a serious motorcycle crash, whereas a car or truck may have no issues running right through these obstacles.
Because cyclists have very little protection around them, the damages are often severe. Riders can sometimes be devastated by debilitating injuries, high medical costs, lost wages from missing work, pain and suffering, property damage, and other losses. Having a qualified attorney review your accident claim is highly recommended so you can learn about your legal options to seek financial compensation for your damages. To obtain compensation for a motorcycle crash caused by a road hazard, you and your attorney can work together to look into and provide the sufficient evidence that is needed to prove your claim.
