Virginia Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Standing up for Bikers Injured by Negligent Drivers

Every year, tens of thousands of motorcyclists are injured on the roads, and thousands don’t make it out alive. In Virginia alone, motorcycle accidents lead to thousands of serious injuries or death every year.

There are dozens of reasons why motorcycles are more likely to be involved in dangerous crashes: riders are unprotected, the vehicles are small and often unseen by other motorists, and the list goes on. But to the motorcycle accident lawyers of Breit Biniazan, these are just excuses. Motorcyclists injured in accidents as a result of another driver’s or entity’s negligence are due the same justice and compensation as any other driver. 

Virginia motorcyclists should feel safe on the road, and we stand up and fight for those who aren’t. If you or a loved one were injured or killed in a motorcycle crash, our accident attorneys can help you receive the compensation you’re owed from those at fault.

Common Causes of Virginia Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are caused by a variety of factors: wet roads, mechanical errors, poor road conditions. But the majority of accidents have nothing to do with the motorcycle driver and everything to do with other negligent drivers on the road. 

Many accidents involving motorcycles and cars happen because the driver of the automobile didn’t see the motorcycle at all. However, the reasons for their lack of awareness are almost always preventable. Whether it was distracted driving while texting, carelessness, or the influence of alcohol, the reason the driver didn’t see the motorcyclist was avoidable, and the driver should be held accountable for their negligence. 

A particularly dangerous situation for bikers occurs when a car makes a left turn and the other driver doesn’t see them. The motorcyclist faces a head-on collision or complicated maneuvering to avoid the car or truck, which can force them to lay the motorcycle down, an almost equally dangerous accident. 

Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • An automobile failed to completely stop before turning right on red
  • An automobile ran a red light before seeing a motorcycle
  • An automobile driver was distracted by passengers or by a phone
  • An automobile did not give right of way to a motorcycle
  • An automobile driver was speeding
  • An automobile driver didn’t check blind spots before changing lanes

Whether your motorcycle accident was the result of one of these common driver mistakes or some other type of negligence, such as a manufacturing error, the end result should be the same. You should be fairly compensated for your injuries, and the person or entity responsible should be called to account.

Injuries Resulting From Motorcycle Accidents

Because motorcycle drivers are unprotected by the air bags, seat belts, and sheer size of most vehicles, they are exposed to serious and often life-altering injuries in the case of an accident. 

Common injuries that result from motorcycle accidents include: 

While these injuries themselves are traumatic, so are the costs they rack up. Serious injuries demand extensive hospital care, physical therapy, and even long-term in-home support, all of which are expensive. Add to that a delayed or even impossible return to work, and the financial ramifications of a motorcycle accident are daunting. 

Standing up in the courtroom won’t undo the wrongs done to you, but it will provide you with the compensation you need to face these expenses and rebuild your life. That’s the least those who hurt you can do.
