Legal Help for Motorcycle Accident Cases in Detroit
Across the U.S., motorcycle accident fatalities have more than doubled since 1996, from roughly 2,100 to about 4,800 in 2006. If you’ve been hurt – or if a loved one has been killed – in a motorcycle accident in Michigan, you can turn to attorney Frederic M. Rosen.
Even with a helmet, motorcycle operators and passengers are vulnerable for a number of reasons:
- The drivers of larger vehicles (cars, trucks, SUVs) often don’t take note of motorcycles on the road.
- They may not give a motorcyclist a full lane width.
- A vehicle driver may not signal his/her intention to change lanes or merge with traffic.
- A driver may not look in the vehicle’s blind spot, missing a motorcycle’s presence.
- A driver may underestimate the effects of adverse weather on a motorcycle.
- Vehicle drivers often do not allow enough following distance behind a motorcyclist.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries and Losses
A motorcycle accident may result in very severe injuries, accompanied by losses such as:
- Medical bills
- Income loss
- Funeral/burial costs
When the motorcycle accident is caused (wholly or in part) by the negligence of another driver, the injured may be eligible for financial compensation.
