Motorcycle riding has unique risks

 

The most common cause of motorcycle accidents is the failure of drivers to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic.

 

Motorcycle accidents are too often catastrophic

 

  • Motorcyclists are about 28 times as likely as passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash.

  • Motorcyclists account for 14% of all traffic-related fatalities, while representing only 3% of the entire registered motor vehicle fleet.

  • Motorcycle accidents often involve injuries to the head, neck and spine that cause temporary or permanent disability.

 

Injured riders need an advocate

 

An accident can change a rider’s life forever, causing serious injuries and even death.  

Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo will hold accountable any party who caused the accident, including:

 

  • Negligent or distracted drivers

  • Intoxicated drivers

  • Commercial truck drivers and their employers

  • Motorcycle and parts manufacturers

  • Bars, social hosts, clubs, or restaurants who serve intoxicated drivers

  • Local governments who fail to provide safe intersections and streets
