Serious Injury or Death from Motorcycle accidents

Nebraska Motorcycle Accident Attorney

According to a report by the Nebraska Department of Transportation in 2019, there were 334 motorcycle accidents with injuries, and of that 24 resulted in death. Though helmets are important elements in motorcycle safety, this testifies to the fact they do not always save lives. In fact, only 22 percent of injuries in these types of crashes are related to the face and neck. The majority of non-life-threatening injuries affect the legs, feet, arms, and hands, but the injuries known to most severely alter the lives of bikers and their families are chest, abdominal, and spinal injuries. This is why you need the best motorcycle accident attorney in Nebraska.

Bikers See the Road from a Different Perspective

That is why people involved in motorcycle accidents require attorneys who understand motorcyclists and know the law on Nebraska’s roadways.

Motorcyclists face serious risks that distinguish them from other vehicles on the road. Motorcycles are small compared to other vehicles and the riders and their passengers who lack overall crash protections are vulnerable to serious injury or fatality. In the common motorcycle accident, drivers of the larger vehicles often change lanes or turn without actually seeing the motorcyclist. As a result, the motorcycle rider, who was doing nothing illegal, gets hit by the car and in many cases seriously injured. While these drivers often admit they did not see the motorcycle and did not intentionally mean to cause harm, they nevertheless acted carelessly and are liable for the injuries and damages to the motorcyclists and any passengers.
