Motorcycle Accidents in Norfolk

Get the Experienced, Dedicated Representation You Deserve

Unlike passenger vehicles, motorcycles do not have any external protection, leaving riders vulnerable to serious injury or even death in the event of an accident. The lack of seatbelts, airbags, and other safety measures exposes motorcyclists to a much higher risk level out on the open road. In fact, studies show that motorcyclists are 25 times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident compared to drivers of passenger vehicles.

If you were injured or if your family member was killed in a Virginia motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of another driver, call us today at (855) 880-8163 for a free case review with one of our experienced Norfolk motorcycle accident attorneys at Kalfus & Nachman PC.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Some of the most common injuries that motorcyclists suffer in accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Burn injury
  • Disfigurement
  • Injuries requiring amputation

If your loved one has been killed in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver's recklessness or negligence, we can help you file a wrongful death case to obtain justice on your loved one's behalf, and compensation for the financial burden that their death has caused your family.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

The primary cause of most motorcycle accidents is the failure of other drivers to notice a motorcycle on the road or if a motorcyclist isn't following the proper motorcycle safety protocols. According to research conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the single most dangerous situation for a motorcyclist occurs when a vehicle is making a left-hand turn. These types of accidents account for 42% of all car-motorcycle wrecks.

Usually, they happen because:

  • The driver fails to check their blind spot before making a turn
  • The driver fails to yield to a motorcycle
  • The driver enters the intersection without seeing an oncoming motorcycle

A recent study by the Florida Department of Transportation confirms that cars and trucks are most often at fault in a motorcycle accident because of their failure to yield the right-of-way to motorcyclists.

However, motorcycle accidents can also be caused by dangerous roadways and defective vehicle parts. In order to determine every liable party in your accident case, you need the help of an experienced Norfolk accident lawyer.

If you have been seriously injured or if your family member has been killed in a motorcycle accident anywhere in Virginia or Northeast NC, please contact Kalfus & Nachman PC online today or call (855) 880-8163 for a free consultation.
