Riding a motorcycle is a pleasant experience and economical way to travel for most enthusiasts, but they are also exposed to a high risk of getting injured or killed in a motorcycle accident. The Olympia motorcycle accident lawyers at Ron Meyers & Associates want you to know that if you or a loved one is injured while riding a motorcycle, you can seek compensation for accident-related expenses.
According to CDC statistics, motorcycle accidents injure well over one hundred thousand riders and cause about 5,000 deaths each year. Most accidents occur because another vehicle driver either violated the motorcycle right-of-way or failed to see the motorcyclist. Collisions with another vehicle, especially automobiles, are the primary cause of motorcycle accidents across the U.S.

Olympia Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
One of the main problems that cause motorcycle accidents is lack of awareness by another vehicle driver. Motorcyclists are not seen in time for that driver to react to avoid a collision, the driver could be impaired, or they may not yield right-of-way to a motorcyclist. No matter how motorcycle accidents happen, the results are disastrous for riders.
Persons injured while riding motorcycles can receive great bodily harm or die from injuries. Most injuries occur to the rider’s limbs, head, chest or back. These can cause permanent disability, loss of the ability to work or enjoy life, or wrongful death. Medical expenses are enormous and long-lasting, including hospital, doctor and after-care expenses. A family may lose their wage earner, companionship and future income if their loved one dies.
