Outstanding Legal Representation for Motorcycle Accident Victims
Motorcycle riding is an exhilarating experience. The freedom of the road on a motorcycle is a passion for many riders as they create lasting bonds and friendships with others they meet. Environmentalists choose biking as a kinder transportation method to our world and a cost-effective means of traveling. The disadvantage of motorcycles is that they are inherently dangerous. Statistics support that persons in motorcycle accidents are more vulnerable and likely to sustain life-altering injuries, disabilities, and death than those in other motor vehicles. Medical costs for recovery can be staggering, in addition to lost earnings and the pain and suffering an accident victim and their family endures.

Common causes of Injuries and Wrongful Death in Motorcycle Accidents
By conducting a thorough investigation, Klausman Law can determine the parties responsible for injuries, damages, and wrongful death. Motorcycle Accidents can be caused by:
- Drivers of motor vehicles often crash into motorcyclists while making left-hand turns due to blind spots or unsafe lane changes. Other forms of driver negligence are speeding, distracted driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, poor maintenance of a vehicle, and impaired vision.
- Mechanical problems with motorcycles or motor vehicles, such as faulty brakes, tire failures, or other defects, can be a liability for the manufacturer. The failure of safety gear, such as a helmet, contributing to injuries may also initiate a product liability claim.
- Dangerous road conditions heighten the risk of accidents. Potholes, debris on the road, weather conditions, slippery surfaces, poor road signage, or defective traffic signals can cause vehicle drivers and motorcyclists to lose control. When an accident is the fault of a government agency, they may be held liable for damages.
