Motorcyclists are often given a bad rap. Other motorists on the road think they drive with carelessness and speed. The reality is that motorcyclists are often the ones who are most alert and careful. At The Law Firm of Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee & Deitzler, PLLC, we advocate for riders who have been seriously injured in crashes.
With decades of collective experience, we have the skills to undertake even the most complicated personal injury claims. Our team of eight lawyers has successfully represented people facing traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns and more.
Motorcyclist Injuries And Statistics
Riders have much less protection than other motorists when an accident occurs. Most motorcyclists suffer from catastrophic injuries when being involved in a crash. In many instances, these crashes unfortunately result in fatalities.
According to a 2015 report by the GHSA ("Governors Highway Safety Association"), on motorcycle traffic fatalities, motorcyclist deaths are predicted to have gone up 10 percent between 2014 and 2015. In addition, 31 states had an increase in motorcyclist fatalities. West Virginia had a 23 percent increase in motorcyclist fatalities. The numbers speak for themselves. Safety to motorcyclists in West Virginia seems to be getting worse and not better.
