Bikers have an equal right to the roadway. Car and tractor trailer drivers who don’t keep a proper lookout for motorcycles need to be brought to justice.
At Cannella & O’Neal, we have over 40 years of experience successfully representing good folks like you who have been injured in a Virginia motorcycle accident. We know that the biggest problem for motorcycle riders is that too many drivers don’t know how to properly share the road with bikers. Car and truck drivers don’t keep a proper lookout for bikers, and some don’t respect the fact that motorcycle riders must have a safety buffer zone all around them when they drive on our streets and highways. We also know that the result of a motorcycle crash can often cause devastating injuries and/or death. Car and truck drivers need to respect a biker’s right to safety on our roads; unfortunately, when that does not happen, people like you get hurt. This is where Cannella & O’Neal comes in.
Statistics show that riding a motorcycle is significantly more dangerous than riding in a car. A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed that around 90,000 motorcycle riders are injured every year in traffic accidents, resulting in around 4,500 fatalities. In fact, a motorcycle rider is nine times more likely than a driver of a car or tractor trailer to be injured in a crash and forty times more likely to be killed. This is because, unlike a car or tractor trailer, motorcycles offer virtually no cushion or protection on impact. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, you should consult with the knowledgeable Richmond motorcycle accident lawyers at Cannella & O’Neal today.
