Motorcyclists face some heavy challenges on the road that typically never crosses the minds of motor vehicle drivers and truck drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (“NHTSA”), 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in 2013 – and in 2014, the number increased. That makes motorcyclists five times more likely to be injured in an auto or truck crash on the road than an ordinary passenger in a regular vehicle. With the advent of automated cars or driverless cars, one only can speculate whether the era of safe motorcycle riding has not become more dangerous, given the science and secrecy behind the algorithms companies will use.
With at least 8.4 million cyclists on the road today, you will need the fearless legal work that the Law Office of Joseph M. Kar, PC will provide to you in your case. When involved in a crash, of any nature, motorcyclists have legal considerations that differ from those of automobile drivers and passengers in other kinds of vehicles. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you need legal counsel as an imperative because succeeding and your rights often depend on getting the right evidence of liability and coordinating with your medical providers and the insurance company.
One key distinction between motorcycles and conventional cars is size. On the road, motorcyclists are small targets, and vehicle drivers who often do not pay proper attention to their surroundings or may not see them. Due to these special legal concerns for motorcyclists, an average attorney approaching the incident like a car accident, will hurt your long-term results and could ultimately bear really negative ramifications that you will not be able to reverse. Mr. Kar is a specialist in motorcycle accident claims and trial work.
Mr. Kar has represented riders in dragging, left-turn crashes, tip-overs, high speed cut-offs, and in other serious and life-changing motorcycle crashes. But, sometimes motorcycle accidents are a result of product liability or a bad part on your ride. So that means it may be more the manufacturer’s fault than anyone else’s fault for the crash. If any injury occurred from that kind of situation, you will need the Law Office of Joseph M. Kar, PC to vet your case properly and thoroughly. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident or crash, you need Mr. Kar to look at your situation thoroughly and using motorcycle protocols to put context to the incident.
Mr. Kar can make a no cost and no obligation, but comprehensive assessment of your facts and case, to help show you the most beneficial scenario following your motorcycle accident. Contact the Law Office of Joseph M. Kar, if you are a seriously injured rider or cyclist and do not risk being blamed with fault for somebody else’s mistakes. Call the Law Office of Joseph M. Kar, PC for the plaintiff’s lawyer you deserve.
