Motorcycle accident attorneys serving Coventry, Warwick, West Warwick, East Greenwich and all of Rhode Island
Motorcycle accidents are often the fault of the other driver due to their failure to observe the motorcycle even when their view is not obstructed. These drivers often try to blame a motorcycle rider for “coming out of nowhere” and therefore causing the accident. Therefore, when necessary, our office will employ accident reconstruction experts to establish points of impact, conduct measurements, analyze speed and render expert opinions to document the fault of the the negligent driver.
Unfortunately accidents involving motorcycles are far more likely to result in serious injuries or fatalities than those involving passenger cars. According to the National Highway Safety Administration, approximately 2000 people are killed in motorcycle accidents each year with another 50,000 people being injured. Motorcyclists are roughly 16 times more likely than those in cars to die in a motor vehicle crash. As a result, serious motorcycle accidents are distinguished from auto accidents as they often result in more devastating injuries including:
- Head trauma
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
When drivers fail to operate their vehicle safely, injured bikers are entitled to full compensation for the injuries and economic losses caused by the accident. Due to the increased potential for severe injuries, there is often insufficient auto insurance from the at-fault driver. In such cases of limited coverage, other attorneys may focus only on securing a policy limits offer from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. At Pollock Law Office, Inc., we focus not only on obtaining the policy limits offer, but also on identifying all other sources of potential insurance coverage. This will include any underinsured motorist coverage on the motorcycle. In addition, you may be entitled to additional coverage under the insurance policy on any motor vehicles that you own, or that are owned by a member of your household who is related to you by blood or marriage. Identification of all available coverage is essential to maximizing your personal injury recovery and any omission could result in a reduced bottom line to you.
For all of these reasons, a motorcycle accident case requires serious analysis and investigation from an injury attorney who is experienced in handling motorcycle accidents.
