Ever since the days of James Dean and Hunter S. Thomson, the motorcycle has been an integral and legendary part of the American automotive landscape. The motorcycle represents something bigger than just a way to get from one destination to the other. Be it freedom, be it independence, be it a commitment to the space between the point A and B, the motorcycle and the image it comes with draws people from every walk of life to its community of riders.
However, there is a downside to all this freedom and independence. The direct cost of motorcycle accidents in the US in 2010 was 16 billion dollars, and some say that is a conservative figure. Motorcyclists are 30 times more likely to die in an accident than those driving a car. In 2010, 82,000 people were injured in motorcycle accidents and 4,502 died. The reality of the situation is that motorcycles injure and kill people every day.
If you have been injured or have had a loved-one killed in a motorcycle accident, you may be able to collect damages to help pay for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and out-of-pocket costs.
