Motorcycle Accidents – Arizona Injury Attorneys – Phoenix

Motorcycle Accident - Phoenix Motorcycle Accident Attorney - Arizona Burg SimpsonArizona’s roads have become deadlier for two years in a row now. In 2016, more than 960 people died in motor vehicle accidents. The number of motorcycle fatalities jumped that year, as well, to 144 from 134 the year before. More than half of those killed were not wearing a helmet. If you have been injured in an accident involving a motorcycle, a Phoenix motorcycle accident attorney can help.

When there is an accident, motorcyclists are far more likely to be seriously hurt – or even killed. Motorcycle accidents might share some similarities with motor vehicle accidents, but there are also some critical differences. The worst of which is that the slightest motorcycle accident can endanger the rider. In fact, motorcyclists are nearly five times more likely to be injured than other motor vehicle occupants. Worse still, motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in an accident. Arizona consistently ranks in the top 10 for motorcycles deaths nationwide.

So it is crucial that motorcyclists who have been hurt in an accident speak with an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney right away. Call Burg Simpson Arizona at 602-777-7000 or by completing our Free Case Evaluation form HERE.

Motorcyclists can take precautions, such as:

  • Wear a helmet – Despite advances in technology and public awareness, motorcycle helmet use has remained static over the last two decades. Less than two-thirds of riders today wear a helmet. Riders should also wear gloves and eyewear.
  • Slow down – Driving too fast for conditions is the most common driver violation associated with accidents.
  • Do not drive impaired – Impaired driving – whether it is from drugs or alcohol – is responsible for about 4 percent of all collisions but a third of fatal crashes.
  • Pay attention- Distracted driving kills. Riders should avoid anything that takes their eyes off the road. Motorcyclists should also be alert at intersections and on the lookout for unusual or sudden movements.

If you have been seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident, get in touch with an Arizona personal injury lawyer immediately by calling Burg Simpson’s Phoenix office at 602-777-7000.
