When compared to drivers of other types of vehicles, motorcycle riders are at much greater risk of being involved in accidents and experiencing serious personal injuries due to a crash. Despite this, the number of motorcycles has increased in the U.S. These vehicles are used not only for fun and sport, but as a more cost-effective form of transportation. With this increase in popularity, however, can come an increase in accidents. If you or someone you know has been involved in a motorcycle accident caused by negligence, getting competent legal representation is essential.
