Motorcycle accident and personal injury lawyer David Morgan understands that motorcycles provide an economical mode of transportation and an enjoyable way to travel on a nice day. But even with the best protective gear, riders often suffer severe injuries in motorcycle accidents. That’s why it’s important for you to consult a motorcycle accident attorney to protect your rights. Even when the driver of another vehicle is clearly at fault, motorcyclists often face the unfair negative attitudes of insurance claims adjusters or juries who automatically assume motorcyclists are to blame for virtually all motorcycle crashes. Without support from an experienced motorcycle accident attorney, motorcyclists can easily face extensive out-of-pocket expenses for medical treatment and long-term care.
With more than two decades of experience helping the injured seek justice; the Morgan Law Firm understands the unique challenges of these cases. And we recognize the special role motorcycle accident lawyers must play to help injured clients pursue the full value of their claims.
Motorcyclists and other drivers must comply with the rules of the road
Because of the risks involved in motorcycle riding, certain motorcycle-specific laws have been implemented in Idaho and Utah. Both the Idaho Transportation Department and the Utah Department of Public Safety provide detailed online information specifically pertaining to the safe operation of motorcycles. The helmet and other safety requirements in both states are similar. Both states require licenses for drivers of motorcycles and a number of other types of motorized vehicles.
Clearly, motorcyclists must observe the rules of the road — and make every effort to ensure their vehicles are easy to see on the roads. But in many cases, the cause of a motorcycle accident points to the failure of other drivers to see bikes that are in plain view of any reasonably vigilant driver. Moreover, some drivers operate under the assumption that motorcyclists must yield the right-of-way to their vehicles, despite laws to the contrary. An attorney representing motorcyclists must often conduct thorough investigations to battle preconceived notions and develop the evidence needed to protect the rights of their clients.
