Motorcycle AccidentsMr. Schaefer has been riding motorcycles since the age of eight, and over the years he has developed an extensive knowledge of the mechanics of motorcycle accidents.  Mr. Schaefer has crafted very successful legal arguments pertaining to the alleged “inability” to see the motorcyclist that is often claimed by the at-fault driver.  Additionally, Mr. Schaefer’s personal riding experience consisting of over 100,000 miles on all types of motorcycles provides him with an additional level of commitment to go after those who cause motorcycle accidents.  Further information regarding Mr. Schaefer’s current motorcycle racing program is listed at the end of his attorney profile.

Over 100,000 motorcyclists have died in motorcycle accidents since 1966. Motorcyclists are more at risk due to lack of seatbelts and outside protection. However, those who wear helmets during motorcycle accidents have a much higher chance for survival than those who do not.

The injuries a motorcycle rider receives in motorcycle accidents are generally much more severe than those from regular vehicular accidents. Motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries and even death. If a recent motorcycle accident has affected your quality of life, or if one of your loved ones has been severely injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, you need to consult a motorcycle accident lawyer now.

A study conducted by Harry Hurt at the University of Southern California, called "Motorcycle Collision Cause Factors and Identification of Countermeasures"; found the following:

  • Approximately three-fourths of the motorcycle collisions studied involved a collision with another vehicle.
  • Approximately one-fourth of the motorcycle collisions studied involved a collision with the roadway or a fixed object in the environment.
  • Two percent of the collisions studied involved some sort of roadway defect (potholes, cracks, pavement ridges, etc.).
  • One percent of the collisions studied involved an animal.
  • In two-thirds of the collisions that involved another vehicle, the driver of the other vehicle was at fault by violating the motorcycle's right-of-way.
  • Injury severity increases with speed, alcohol involvement, and motorcycle size.

Motorcycles are involved in a high number of traffic collisions and the resulting injuries can be catastrophic. Thus, it is crucial that injured motorcyclists seek the advice of an experienced and aggressive law firm to protect their interests. If you or a loved one is involved in a motorcycle accident, please contact us for a free consultation.
