Motorcyclists Easily Unseen by Drivers

Comments Off

Motorcyclists drive at risk on our roadways, because truck drivers and auto drivers frequently fail to see a motorcyclist in their mirrors. Because motorcylists are much smaller objects on the roadway, they are at risk to be cut off or struck by a motorist in a motor vehicle accident.

Persons injured in motorcyle-car collisions will encounter some adverse reaction by a jury because riding a motorcycle, with or without a helmet, is widely perceived as an inherently dangerous activity. Mototcyclists have the same rights on the road as any other driver but a subtle prejudice exists against mototcyclists by police and jurors. Liability insurance companies like to take advantage of this view and low-ball injury settlement offers to injuured motorcyclists. Therefore, motorcyclists would be well advised to seek representation by experienced and determined lawyers. The Cleveland law firm of Landskroner Grieco Madden Ltd. has years of experience in handling these types of cases.
