Gretna Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Riding a motorcycle feels like freedom for many people. They soak up the sun as they ride around town on a gorgeous day. While a motorcycle ride can be exhilarating, it can also be dangerous.

Motorcycles are different from passenger vehicles. They are smaller, so they are not easily seen by motorists. Plus, motorcycles have just two wheels instead of three, so they are more prone to balance issues. These two differences often lead to serious crashes. In fact, motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to be killed than those inside a passenger vehicle.

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents often result in fatality. Those who are involved often must deal with catastrophic injuries such as back and neck injuries, head trauma, broken bones, and internal injuries. Recovering from and paying for these injuries can be a real headache. Motorcycle accidents can result in significant damages. Get the financial help you need from a Gretna motorcycle accident lawyer from Palazzo Law Firm. We’ll get you compensation and justice.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

It’s not hard to get into a motorcycle crash. Some common causes include:

  • It’s illegal (and unsafe) to ride a motorcycle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, but many people do it. No matter what type of vehicle you are operating, impairment can occur through slowed reaction times and poor judgment.
  • Many motorcycle riders like to go fast, but this makes loss of control more likely. Plus, the higher the speed, the more severe the injuries will be.
  • Weather conditions. It’s not going to be warm and sunny all year long. Rain, ice, and snow can threaten a motorcycle ride, making it hard to see. Plus, these conditions make the road slippery.
  • Poor road conditions. Besides the weather, other factors can affect the roadways and make it hard to ride a motorcycle. Debris in the road, rain puddles, oil slicks, leaves, cracks, potholes, uneven pavement, and poor lighting can make it harder for a rider to control their bike, causing serious accidents.
  • Left-turn accidents. Many motorcycle accidents occur when a motorist is attempting to turn left but there is a motorcycle coming and it has the right of way. A lot of the time, motorists either do not see these motorcycles or they misjudge how far away they are. The result is a serious or deadly collision.
  • Riding a motorcycle properly requires training. Most people cannot hop on a bike and know what they’re doing. It’s good to take a training course so you can learn the basics.
