Motorcycle Safety in Virginia

The majority of motorcycle accidents are preventable because they are caused by driver negligence, not random chance. Of the 92 Virginia motorcycle-related fatalities in 2020, 16.3% involved distracted driving as a contributing factor, 35.8% involved intoxication, and 57.6% involved speeding. In all of these cases, the hazard or mistake that caused the crash was a deliberate choice on someone’s part.

According to data from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), motorcycle accident fatality risks were highest among those aged 21-35 in 2020. Those riders accounted for 39.1 % of all motorcycle-related injuries and 57.6% of all motorcycle-related fatalities. This is a change from recent past years when riders in the 45-60 age group made up the greatest portion of those involved in motorcycle-related fatalities.

Our Virginia motorcycle accident lawyers study motorcycle accident trends each year to see if there are any signs of growing issues that might be pertinent to our clients’ cases. When picking an attorney to work on your case, make sure you choose someone who takes the situation seriously and views it from multiple angles.

If you believe your right to ride has been violated, contact us today at (855) 529-7433 and let us help you.

Representation In & Out of Court

Motorcycle accident cases can end in your favor through a settlement or an award. Our legal team has the experience needed to steer your case toward success, no matter which outcome is reached. Both a settlement and award serve the purpose of compensating an injured motorist. Being fully compensated is The Firm That Rides® goal in every case.

Below is the difference between a settlement and court award:

  • Settlement: A settlement is agreed upon in a conference room setting between yourself, the opposition, and attorneys representing both sides. Many motorcycle accident claims that are backed by legitimate, concrete evidence end in a settlement. The insurance company does not want to get taken to trial and pay more in court and attorney fees. If it seems like you have a strong chance of winning, then we will prepare to negotiate for a settlement.
  • Award: An award can be issued to you after your case goes to court before a judge and/or jury. Insurance companies do not like to go to court, but they are not completely opposed to the idea. If the insurer thinks you do not have a strong case, then it will try to scare you off entirely by refusing to settle and forcing you to litigate. Do not worry. The Firm That Rides® is also the firm that litigates with confidence and tenacity.

Take the Stress Out of Your Case Today

Managing all aspects of a motorcycle accident case is not easy. The situation will be even more stressful if you are recovering some severe injuries like a head injury, back injury, or road rash.

Commercial Truck Accident Lawyers in Virginia

Big rig trucks outweigh the average commuter vehicle more than 10 times over, which is why accidents involving tractor-trailers and passenger cars or motorcyclists so often result in catastrophic injuries and death.

There are, unfortunately, a lot of factors that can lead to commercial trucking accidents.

Part of the risk has to do with the sheer size of the vehicle and the constant vigilance truckers need to maintain, but another risk are the long hours and fatigue that often impacts a driver’s performance.

If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident with a commercial truck, the Motorcycle Law Group is ready to fight for you.
