Motorcyclists are fully exposed to the full force of an impact, which makes motorcycle accidents much more dangerous and potentially deadly for motorcycle occupants than vehicle occupants. According to Louisiana State University’s Center for Analytics & Research in Transportation (CART), motorcycle accidents were listed as the cause of 85 motorcycle driver fatalities and two motorcycle passenger fatalities in 2019.
If you or a loved one was recently injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, you might be able to hold the vehicle driver who caused the accident responsible for its costs. Have your injuries evaluated immediately, then call our personal injury team. Your time to seek recovery is limited, so act fast.

Your Lawyer Can Start Building Your Case Based on the Cause of the Accident
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), primary causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Vehicles turning left
- Vehicles speeding
- Alcohol-impaired vehicle drivers
As you review the details of the accident with a team member at our firm, let them know if one or more of these factors caused your accident. If any other factors might have led to the accident, let your lawyer know. Our team might also ask for a copy of the police report about the motorcycle accident and other evidence to support your case.
We May Collect Certain Documents as Evidence to Support Your Case
One of the goals of building your case might be to prove that the driver who hit your motorcycle breached their duty of care. All drivers have a duty to follow traffic laws and navigate the roads safely to keep others from harm. People who act negligently or recklessly breach this duty of care.
As we compile evidence for your case, we might explain the significance of each piece in your case argument. We may request the following evidence:
- Police reports
- Pictures of your injuries
- Proof of lost wages
- Witness testimonies
- Medical records and bills
- Property damage pictures
- Traffic control camera footage

It can be difficult to split your focus when your injuries require hospital admissions or long-term physical rehabilitation.
