New Hampshire Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Call (888) 471-3714 to speak with a car accident attorney.

If you're a motorcyclist, you already know that you face many hazards on the roads. You must contend with poor road conditions, bad weather, negligent automobile drivers and defective parts. You can take all the safety courses available; you can wear all the appropriate safety equipment and carry all the right insurance and yet you can still face the unfortunate circumstance of an accident. If you have been the victim of a motorcycle accident, you need to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you make the call, the better your chances of a successful outcome in your case.

Eighty percent of all motorcycle accidents are caused by negligent car or truck operators, who are also involved in the crash. Additionally, motorcycle drivers are not surrounded by steel and air bags, and thus are exposed to the full force of collisions. Motorcycle accidents result in more than 3,500 deaths per year in the United States. You are much more likely to be seriously injured on a motorcycle than in a car. Motorcycle ownership is increasing in popularity every year, so the statistics keep growing.

Because of the very nature of a motorcycle, accidents are a common hazard, and unlike car accidents, the potential of having a fatal accident is high. It is reported that anywhere from 70-80 percent of all reported motorcycle accidents result in injury or death, while the injury/fatality rate of passenger vehicles is 20 percent. There are several reasons for this. Motorcycles offer no protection from the elements and absolutely no protective barrier between the roads and car drivers. Recent statistics show that per 100 million vehicle miles traveled, the number of reported motorcycle accidents was 776.57, while the number for passenger cars involved in accidents per 100 million miles traveled was 423.13.

If you have been injured, or are related to someone who died in a motorcycle accident, you should call a personal injury attorney in New Hampshire. Personal injury attorneys typically take cases on a contingency basis, so you do not need to pay any money up front. Attorneys who specialize in motorcycle accidents are available in your area, for consultation about the facts of your case. Your attorney will investigate your case and find doctors who will wait for payment. They can find and interview witnesses, in addition to dealing with all insurance companies involved.

As much as we would like to believe that insurance companies play fair, the chances are that they will attempt to pay you as little in damages as possible. To this end, adjusters for insurance companies may contact you, attempting to get you to accept a low settlement, or even attempting to get you to make a taped statement admitting your fault or partial fault in the accident. This way, they can pay little or no damages. If you have been contacted by an insurance adjuster, it's within your rights to refuse to talk to them unless and until you have secured legal assistance in your case.

You deserve the best representation in New Hampshire. You can take all kinds of steps in order to prevent an accident, but if you are injured you need a qualified, compassionate and experienced attorney on your side, fighting for your rights, throughout this whole process.
