Frequent Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are often viewed as careless or reckless and are often blamed for their own injuries. The fact is that other drivers on the road often pose a much greater threat to motorcyclists, and are frequently at least partially to blame for these serious accidents. Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted or drunk driving
- Failing to carefully check blind spots before turning or changing lanes
- Debris on the roadway
Motorcycles lack many of the safety features of other vehicles, including seat belts and airbags. Additionally, there is no outer framework to offer protection. Since Idaho’s helmet law only applies to riders and passengers under the age of 18, many motorcyclists forgo this protection. Even those who do wear a helmet may still suffer serious head injuries in an accident.

Securing Damages from Negligent Motorists
The bias motorcyclists face can make securing damages from a negligent motorist even more difficult. At Hepworth, Janis, & Kluksdal, our motorcycle accident attorneys will fight this bias to ensure that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries. With their help, you may be able to secure compensation for:
- Ongoing medical treatment
- Lost income and loss of future earnings
- Damage to your motorcycle
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
Insurance adjusters will do everything they can to minimize your claim. They may try to blame you for the accident, and they will certainly take advantage of victims who have not obtained legal representation. Following an accident, it is critical that you contact an attorney and do not make any statements to the insurance company—written or otherwise—without speaking with your attorney first.
Our firm understands how to succeed on your behalf when it comes to insurance negotiations and will serve as your strongest advocate. If we are unable to reach a settlement agreement with the insurance company, we have no qualms about going to trial to achieve the compensation you deserve.
