Motorcycle accidents are increasing according to studies that have been performed recently (1997-present) and the scariest statistic is that the number of fatalities from these accidents are also on the rise (3661 motorcyclists died in 2003 alone). Motorcycles are considered to be more of a risk than other motor vehicles to some insurance companies, so not all companies carry motorcycle insurance. Many people also believe that the motorcyclists are usually the ones at fault in accidents involving motorcycles and another type of vehicle, but that is not always the case. The potential for more medical damages and injuries is greater with being involved in an accident on a motorcycle as well, so it is very important that you receive all the compensation you are entitled to. Finding a motorcycle accident lawyer who is familiar with this type of situation will help you to have a much stronger case in court.
