Choosing the right attorney makes all the difference in a personal injury case!

star

There are hundreds, if not thousands of personal injury attorneys. However, personal injury attorneys are not all the same. Each law firm has different goals as a business, and the strategies they use in their cases are aligned. Choosing a small firm with values that align with your personal goals for your case will give your case the attention and time it needs to get you the best possible outcome.

Motorcycle Deaths Reached 5,000 Last Year

motorcycle accident lawyer in New Orleans

Even though motorcyclists only account for a fraction of the vehicles on the road, the number of fatal and serious accidents involving motorcycles is high. Many motorcycle accidents are the result of rider error; however, a large number of accidents seen each year are also the result of negligence by other drivers. In fact, one of the leading causes of a motorcycle injury in New Orleans is the failure for other drivers to see the motorcyclist.

Regardless of if a motorist drives a motorcycle, truck or car, they have a duty to the people they share the road with. This duty requires that the individual operates their vehicle in a manner that is responsible and safe. If a motorcyclist is injured due to the fault or negligence of another driver, they need to contact a motorcycle accident attorney right away for help. In many cases, they can recover compensation for the injuries and damages they suffered.

Due to the general belief that motorcyclists are negligent while on the road, many insurance companies try to “pass the blame” on to the rider. Without the help of a motorcycle accident lawyer in New Orleans, this defense strategy is often successful.

It is important for anyone injured in a motorcycle accident to be ready for a fight. They also need the help of an attorney who understands how to gather evidence and present a solid case. While there are some cases that are due to motorcycle driver negligence, this is a low percentage of accidents.

The Steady Increase of Motorcycle Accidents

In 2015, the number of motorcycle related fatalities surpassed the 5,000 mark in the United States. This is the first time this has happened since 2008. There are several factors spurring this increase, according to recent research. Some of these factors include cheaper gasoline prices and a longer riding season. Even though the state of Louisiana has a mandatory helmet law, this still hasn’t helped reduce the number of people who suffer a motorcycle injury in New Orleans, or even death, while on the road.

Facts about New Orleans Motorcycle Fatalities

From the period of 2004 to 2008, the number of motorcyclists on the road jumped from 55,800 to over 70,000. Today, there are even more. This increase has resulted in a steady rise in the number of fatalities that occur on the roadway.

The majority of Louisiana motorcycle accidents occur near heavy traffic areas, such as New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Disregard for motorcycles and driver negligence are two of the biggest factors resulting in motorcycle accidents in Louisiana. Even the most safety conscious, careful rider can suffer a debilitating injury and even death when other drivers are negligent while on the road.
