Rochester Personal Injury Attorney
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),
more than 40% of all
motorcycle accidents that cause the rider’s death involve no other vehicles. Single-motorcycle
accidents are a serious concern for riders all across the country, especially
when considering that it can be difficult to find compensation for your
injuries when it would appear that only you were the source of the crash.
This is only an assumption, though, and a dangerous one at that. Never
jump to the conclusion that there is no hope for your recovery. With proper
litigation and an understanding of liability laws, there may be a way
to have a more comfortable tomorrow.

Causes of Single-Motorcycle Accidents
There is an assuredly high number of single-motorcycle accidents that are
caused by the simple negligence of the rider – and this is the assumption
that insurance companies will make – but there are also a great
deal of one-rider collisions that are not the rider’s fault. The
careful eye and investigative instincts allow Attorney King to pinpoint
liability where other lawyers might have overlooked. When necessary, he
can consult with accident reconstructionists and other industry experts
to get more evidence that supports your claim.
Other factors that may cause a single-motorcycle accident are:
Defective parts: A bursting tire, failing brake system, or an engine that is out of control
may all be caused by a defective motorcycle part, and they may all cause
a rider to crash. Part manufacturers must be held accountable for when
their products cause such devastating single-rider accidents.
Poor roadways: Motorcycles require perfect balance to be used safely. If a portion of
the highway is damaged, excessively bumpy, or uneven, it can toss novice
and veteran bikers alike from their rides. The city should be held to
the highest of standards, which includes maintaining safe roads.
Other motorists: Just because a motorcycle rider crashes alone does not mean that no one
else was involved in the moments that led up to that accident. Drivers
of larger vehicles such as
trucks may have swerved into their lane to cut them off or bumped into them from
behind, only to flee the scene after the crash occurred.
An Argument With Your Insurance Company
The cost to recover after a single-motorcycle accident may be extensive.
Rehabilitation therapy could last for years and other medical expenses
upfront could range well into the thousands. Your insurance company may
give you a lowballed offer after you have been in a crash that involved
no other vehicles in an attempt to avoid paying full costs and saving
their profits. Needless to say, this practice should not be accepted and
you can let a personal injury attorney work on your behalf to negotiate
a better settlement with your own insurer.
