Motorcycle crashes can be deadly or result in serious catastrophic injuries to the rider. One major study found that 98% of motorcycle crashes resulted in injuries to the motorcycle rider. The failure of motorists to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic is a major cause of motorcycle wrecks and most of these crashes occur at intersections where the motorist fails to yield the right of way to the motorcycle rider.
A significant number of motorcycle crashes occur when the at-fault driver in driving under the influence or alcohol or some other intoxicating substance.
Particularly troubling for downed riders is the misinformed perception by the general public that the rider assumed the risk of injury by riding a motorcycle. The insurance company for the at-fault motorist will likely try to take advantage of these prejudices in order to minimize any payments to the motorcycle rider. Joel does not tolerate this type of ill treatment towards his clients.
