Sport Bike Accidents
Sport bike accidents present specific problems when involved in an accident. Being significantly lighter and smaller than a chopper or cruiser, there is greater possibility of extensive damage for sport bike riders. A controversial 2007 report by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety claimed that supersport motorcycles were four times more likely to be involved in highway crashes than other types. Regardless of whether or not this study was accurate, it is a good reminder that all motorcycle riders should be aware of the dangers on the road.
Sport Bike Accident Injuries
It is the motorcycle rider who often suffers severe injuries, or in the most tragic cases, death. Protective riding gear and a helmet usually do relatively little to counteract the force in an accident, especially in a high-speed collision. It is important to hire an attorney who has a firm grasp of the dynamics of sport bike accidents and a thorough understanding of the elements involved. For example, the breaking and suspension systems can play a large role in how the bike reacts in specific situations and how it handles. We can investigate your accident in an effort to prove the other driver was at fault when necessary.
Even if you were partially or wholly at fault, there may be ways to maximize the amount of compensation you receive. If other factors were involved, such as defective parts of unsafe road conditions, this may still be able to work to your benefit as regards your financial recovery. If you are unsure who is at fault, let us take a thorough review of your case. If you are the victim of a negligent driver, you deserve all the compensation available under current state law.
