Distracted Driving Is The No. 1 Cause Of Crashes
People are typically looking out for other cars when they drive. They are not necessarily watching for motorcycles, which are much smaller and therefore harder to see. This is called “looked but failed to see” in the studies done on why cars pull out in front of motorcycles or sideswipe and T-bone motorcyclists. When a car driver is reckless or distracted while driving, motorcycle riders can easily become crash victims.
As an experienced and award-winning personal injury attorney, you can count on T.J. to dig deep into the facts of the case and uncover the real causes of the wreck. Even if it looks like the motorcycle rider is at fault, he knows that may not actually be true. T.J. has an in-depth knowledge of the factors influencing motorcycle accidents. He also knows when to recreate the scene and call in the experts to prove his assessment. In many cases, he can reconstruct the wreck and show the jury why the car driver is responsible.
In one recent case, for instance, T.J. was able to show that our client was a very experienced motorcyclist, not a rookie rider. The bike’s skid marks were perfectly straight, and the patterns on the road and the damage proved that the rider was braking and in complete control of the bike until the impact. With any crash involving a motorcycle, it’s important to work with an attorney who has the specialized knowledge these crashes require for an accurate analysis.
