Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Sierra Vista
Involved in a Motorcycle Accident?
While driving a motorcycle can be very enjoyable in Sierra Vista, Arizona, it can also be dangerous when you are involved in an accident while riding one. According to the NHTSA (National Highway Safety Transportation Administration), "Per vehicle mile traveled in 2006, motorcyclists were about 35 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash and 8 times more likely to be injured." With these kinds of statistics it is important to take proper precautions when riding a motorcycle. However, other drivers often cause motorcycle accidents due to factors such as inattention, speeding, violating traffic laws or drunk driving. When a vehicle impacts with a bike, it is common that the motorcycle goes down and the drive gets thrown from the vehicle. Such an impact generally results in severe injuries, which can include such things as road burns, fractures, head and neck injuries and sometimes even death.
