Fatal Motorcycle Accidents

Fatal Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Nationally Recognized Personal Injury and Leading Motorcycle Accident Attorney

To save your life as a motorcyclist, Proner & Proner, prominent nationwide motorcycle injury law firm, urges you to practice defensive driving even before you mount your bike.

Stay away from drunk driving altogether. This means you should not ride your motorcycle under the influence of alcohol, and you should avoid mingling with traffic in areas where you have reason to believe that excessive consumption of alcohol is underway — such as at a motorcycle rally.

Avoid speeding, and stay away from cars whose drivers are speeding. A few minutes saved by speeding are not worth the risk to your well-being and survival.

According to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), fatal motor vehicle accidents decreased slightly between 1994 and 2008, from 36,254 in 1994 to 34,172 in 2008. During that same time frame, however, fatal motorcycle accidents increased from 2,320 per year to 5,312 per year. In other words, fatal motorcycle accidents made up approximately 1/7 of all fatal motor vehicle accidents in 2008.

These statistics confirm what we have observed anecdotally through our motorcycle accident law practice. If a loved one was among the more than 5,000 motorcyclists killed this year, we hope that you draw a bit of comfort knowing that your family is not alone in your loss.

After a Fatal Motorcycle Accident Anywhere in the U.S., Lawyer Mitchell Proner Welcomes Your Inquiry

We understand, however, that you need much more than comfort from our law firm. You are likely to need compensation to handle the financial needs that a sudden death in the family brings about for most people. We bring wrongful death claims on behalf of surviving family members of fatal motorcycle accident victims.

Perhaps your loved one practiced these and other safety tips when operating a motorcycle — but was killed by an inattentive driver. Your family deserves answers — and compensation.
