Thousands of fatalities this year were the result of motorcycle accidents and nearly half of those involved a collision with a car. While motorcycles are inherently dangerous because of the lack of protection, the feeling of freedom they provide can be exhilarating. Motorcyclists have every right to use the full width of the road, including riding two abreast. Other motorists have a duty to look out for anyone or anything on the road, and brake in time to avoid collisions. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents end in tragedy more often than car and truck accidents. Spinal cord injury, brain injury, and fatalities are not uncommon. With so much on the line, it is important to consult with an attorney that can effectively represent your legal needs. Contact Trombly & Singer, PLLC to discuss your matter.
Common Causes of DC Motorcycle Accidents
Negligent driving is the biggest proponent of motorcycle accidents. Although these accidents may cause little harm to the car driver, they frequently do serious harm to the motorcyclist given the significant lack of protection. Motorcycle accidents can be caused by a variety of reasons such as:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Defective motorcycle parts
Most of these can be combatted by motorists who are more aware of their environment and take the necessary precautions to avoid motorcyclists. Because of this, negligent drivers should be held liable for any harm they cause due to their negligence and a qualified motorcycle accident attorney at Trombly & Singer, PLLC can help see that through.
