According to data from NSC Injury Facts, while motorcycles constitute just 3% of all registered vehicles and represent only 0.6% of total vehicle miles traveled in the United States, the proportion of motorcyclists involved in traffic fatalities is much higher. In 2021, motorcyclists accounted for 14% of all traffic fatalities, 17% of occupant fatalities, and 3% of occupant injuries. One of the key factors impacting these trends is the use of helmets.

Lane Splitting:
Lane splitting occurs when a motorcyclist rides between two lanes of traffic, often in slow-moving or stopped traffic. Although lane splitting is legal in some states, it can be dangerous and increase the risk of accidents. Our team at Mincone Law Group has extensive experience handling cases involving lane splitting accidents and can provide the guidance and representation you need.

Driver or Rider Negligence:
Negligent behavior by either the motorcyclist or another driver can lead to severe accidents. Speeding, reckless driving, failure to yield, or disobeying traffic laws are all examples of negligence that can contribute to a motorcycle crash. Our dedicated motorcycle accident lawyers will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine liability and hold the responsible party accountable.

Dangerous Turns:
Making unsafe turns is a common cause of motorcycle accidents. Whether it’s a driver failing to signal a turn, misjudging the distance or speed of an oncoming motorcycle, or making a sudden turn without checking blind spots, dangerous turns can result in catastrophic collisions. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident due to a dangerous turn, our legal team is here to fight for your rights.

Distracted Drivers/Riders:
Distracted driving is a significant problem on the roads today. When drivers or riders take their eyes off the road to send a text, make a phone call, adjust the radio, or engage in any other distracting activity, the consequences can be devastating. If you believe your motorcycle accident was caused by a distracted driver or rider, our experienced attorneys will work tirelessly to prove liability and seek the compensation you deserve.

Drunk Driving:
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a reckless and illegal act that puts everyone on the road at risk. Unfortunately, motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable to the negligence of drunk drivers. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident involving a drunk driver, our compassionate legal team will fight for justice and ensure you receive the full and fair compensation you are entitled to.

Unsafe Lane Changes:
When a driver fails to check their blind spots or uses their mirrors improperly before changing lanes, it can lead to a catastrophic accident with a motorcyclist. These accidents often result in severe injuries due to the size and vulnerability of motorcycles. If you’ve been injured in an unsafe lane change accident, our skilled motorcycle accident attorneys will diligently investigate your case and fight to hold the responsible party accountable.

Defective Vehicle:
Sometimes, motorcycle accidents are caused by mechanical defects or faulty parts. In such cases, it may be possible to hold the manufacturer or distributor accountable for the injuries sustained. Our legal team has experience handling cases involving defective motorcycles and will pursue all available avenues of compensation on your behalf.
