The principal personal injury attorney of our Salt Lake City, Utah law firm, Dustin Lance, has ridden motorcycles for more than thirty years. As both a competitive rider and as an enthusiast he understands motorcycle crashes and he is dedicated to protecting the legal rights of his fellow motorcycle riders in Salt Lake City and throughout all of Utah.
Unfortunately, motorcycle accident personal injury cases represent a disproportionate number of the most serious personal injury cases we see in our Utah personal injury law office. This isn't a random statistic. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are 8 times more likely to be injured in an accident and 32 times more likely to die in a crash or wreck than other motor vehicle accident victims. Sadly, we have handled far too many motorcycle wreck wrongful death cases.
Most motorcyclists are good and consciencous riders. They obey speed limits and traffic regulations. They maintain proper following distances and safe intervals between themselves and other drivers. Riders signal their lane changes, sometimes with blinkers and hand signals, and they even keep their headlights on at all times. Despite all of this, for some reason, drivers don't see or they ignore motorcycles causing bike crashes. Worse, some drivers even take their fear of "outlaw bikers" on Harleys out against innocent riders.
The very freedoms that attract riders to motorbikes are a riders' greatest emeny during a motorcycle accident. Even when you wear a helmet and protective clothing you are prone to substantial personal injury when you are invovled in a motorcycle accident crash. Road rash is something that all motorcycle riders are familar with and is a guarantee in any bike crash.
Motorcycle and scooter personal injury cases are often more complex than they should be because of significant medical bills and because quite often there are limited insurance funds available to make insurance claims. In addition, insurance companies, their adjusters, their "IME" doctors and many jurors are often biased against Harley Davidson, "bullet bike", and other motorcycle riders because of inaccurate information and bad experiences. We are all familiar with juror attitudes towards kids on "crotch rockets" and "bullet bikes." Due to our experience in handling motorcycle crash cases, we know how to confront these issues from the outset and our motorcycle wreck injury law firm has a proven track record of substantial recoveries in motorcycle personal injury accident cases.
