Delaware attracts motorcyclists from all over the country, and why not? Delaware offers a great deal to be desired for motorcyclists, including scenic light house routes, twisting coastal roads, and unpaved paths. Saddling up and sitting behind the bars while enjoying the bike routes of Delaware can be fun, but it can also be deadly. Dozens of motorcyclists die in Delaware each year. In fact, many Delawareans will detail you the 1922 collision involving Officer Francis Ryan, who on November 2, 1922 died after two hard-fought weeks spent in the hospital battling injuries he sustained while on motorcycle patrol. A vehicle traveling in the opposite direction of Ryan crossed lanes and struck the officer's motorcycle, ultimately killing him. Sadly, little has changed up to 80 percent of collisions between motorcycles and other vehicles are found to be caused by operators of the passenger-vehicle, not the motorcycle.

The state of Delaware offers safety classes for new riders. This, combined with the wearing of proper safety equipment, is not enough to protect Delaware riders from the cruel reality of the dangers associated with riding a bike. The good news is that there are many personal injury lawyers in Delaware who specialize in motorcycle accident cases. Enlisting their years of experience on the subject translates to better representation for your case. Most Delaware motorcycle accident attorneys will work on a contingency basis, meaning they will not seek payment until your case is won.

Due to the high fatality rates of motorcycle accidents, it is common for families of accident victims to seek compensation for wrongful death. If you are a family member of a loved one lost to a motorcycle accident where another driver was negligent, you are entitled to seek compensation, and contacting a Delaware attorney experienced in such cases should be your first step. In a Delaware wrongful death suit, dependents of a crash victim are entitled to monetary compensation for deaths resulting from the negligence of others. A Delaware motorcycle death lawyer will be able to gather information from investigations and witnesses, and prove that another driver's misconduct lead to the death of your loved one. They do so by showing that the motorcyclist was driving in complete or more than 50 percent accordance to the law. They take into consideration many different scenarios where the other driver was at fault, such as alcohol consumption or operator error due to improper driving tactics.

Your Delaware personal injury lawyer can also help you find doctors who will wait for payment and are familiar with testifying in a courtroom. Having the testimony of a doctor is important, because they will be able to pinpoint the types of treatments you will need to fully recover, and how much they will cost.

In order for a lawyer to accomplish this estimation, though, it is important for the victim to seek medical help immediately following the incident. It is also important for doctors to adequately determine what injuries have been sustained, and what avenues to take on the road to complete and total recovery. Providing this information to a qualified personal injury attorney experienced in motorcycle accident law will give you the best chance of recovering all that is rightfully due to you under Delaware law.
