Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?

More often than not, motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers. Many drivers are not in the habit of checking for motorcycles in their blind spots.

Many accidents also occur when drivers are texting, not paying attention to the road, and not keeping a proper look out for riders.

Motorcycle accidents can also occur when riders attempt to avoid a collision with another motor vehicle. This type of accident is called a "no contact" accident.
