What Makes Motorcycle Accidents Unique?

Motorcycle accidents are unique due to the inherent vulnerability of riders. Unlike in a car accident, motorcyclists lack the protection of a vehicle’s frame, making them more prone to severe injuries. The absence of seat belts and airbags further increases the risk.


Additionally, motorcycles are less visible on the road, increasing the likelihood of collisions caused by other drivers’ negligence. Maneuverability and speed capabilities of motorcycles also play a role. These unique factors make it crucial to have legal representation.


With the help of our expert advice, we can help navigate the complexities of insurance claims and legal procedures to secure fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

Frequently Asked Questions

Motorcycle accidents can result in a range of injuries, varying from minor to severe. Due to the lack of protection, motorcyclists are at a higher risk of sustaining serious injuries. At Zhivov Law, our lawyers can assist you in understanding the types of injuries that commonly occur and the legal options available to seek compensation for your damages. 

  • Minor injuries may include cuts, bruises, and minor abrasions. These may still require medical attention and documentation.
  • Broken bones are a common result of motorcycle accidents. These can range from simple to more compound and complex fractures.
  • Traumatic brain injuries and other minor head injuries can occur during a motorcycle accident. Helments significantly reduce the risk of a severe head injury. 
  • Spinal cord injuries are severe and can result in partial or complete paralysis.
  • Road rash is a common injury that occurs when a rider skids across the asphalt. Road rash involves friction burns and abrasions. 

If the other driver involved in the accident falsely claims that you were at fault, it is important to gather evidence, such as witness statements, photos, and police reports, to establish the true sequence of events. Our personal injury lawyers can investigate the motorcycle accident and build a strong case to support your innocence, and challenge any unfounded fault claims.

Insurance claim denials are not uncommon. However, at Zhivov Law, our lawyers can review the denial, challenge it with supporting evidence, and represent your interests in negotiations or legal proceedings to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Time is of the essence in filing a motorcycle accident claim. The statute of limitations sets a time limit within which you must file your claim to seek compensation. In most cases, this time frame ranges from one to three years from the date of the accident. Missing this deadline could result in the loss of your right to pursue a claim. It’s crucial to act promptly and seek legal assistance from our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers to protect your rights.
