Anchorage Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Seek Counsel from Our Anchorage Injury Team
When it comes to sharing the road, motorcyclists are the most vulnerable to severe and fatal injuries. Compared with drivers of cars, trucks, or SUVs, they have limited protection in an accident, despite the durability of their helmet, jacket, and other protective gear. Motorcyclists have the ability to weave in-and-out of lanes and avoid traffic, leaving the possibility of an unsuspecting motorist to accidently make contact with a motorcycle.
Possible injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents include:
- Brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Road rash
- Spinal cord injuries
Not only will you be paying medical expenses and damage to your vehicle, but you could potentially lose income made from working. At Denali Law Group, we are prepared to legally represent those who were involved in motorcycle accidents and attain the deserved compensation for their damages.
Causes of a Motorcycle Accident
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,381 motorcyclists died in crashes in 2013. Exposed to the elements and equipped with high performance capabilities, motorcycles are susceptible to multiple factors which might trigger an accident.
Possible causes of a motorcycle accident are the following:
- Difficulty seeing incoming motorists
- Driving on the wrong side of the road
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Disobeying speed limits
- Ignoring traffic conditions
- Ignoring traffic signs
- Ignoring turn signals
- Inexperienced motorists
- Intentional hostile behavior and actions
- Poor weather conditions
- Roadway defects, due to construction or weather
- Vehicle defects
Wearing a helmet drastically increases the survival rate by 37%, preventing 67% of brain injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident. Unfortunately, only 19 states make it mandatory for all motorcyclists to wear helmets, with Alaska only making those 17 and younger wear helmets.
