Chopper Motorcycle Accidents

A chopper motorcycle accident can potentially have life-changing or even fatal consequences for the driver and any rider involved. Choppers pose unique problems by design. Bikers who ride choppers without sufficient knowledge of their unique handling and responses are at an increased risk of being involved in a motorcycle accident. Therefore it is recommended that full safety clothing always be worn when riding. Without the safety features of an enclosed vehicle surrounding bikers’ bodies, motorcyclists are often thrown from their chopper, hit, run over or crushed. This has the possibility of causing multiple bone fractures, breaks, head trauma, concussion, severe, permanent burns, internal injuries that are potentially deadly and a variety of other catastrophic physical and psychological injuries. These injuries could require weeks, months, and sometimes years of constant medical treatment and physical therapy. Riders often find themselves disabled, either temporarily or permanently, losing their job because of their injury, losing income as a result of losing a job and needing physical assistance just to complete daily tasks like eating, using the restroom and getting around their home.

Motorcycle Accident Causes And Negligence

If your Florida chopper or motorcycle accident was caused by what you feel to be the negligence or wrongdoing of another driver, you absolutely have a right to seek compensation for the damages connected with your physical injuries and damage to your motorcycle or chopper. You’ll see that we often cite statistics from studies, both local and nationwide. In one called “Motorcycle Accident Cause Factors and Identification of Counter Measures,” conducted with funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), it was found that 75 percent of motorcycle and chopper accidents involved a collision with another vehicle, usually a passenger car. In two thirds of these accidents, the driver in the passenger vehicle violated the motorcyclist’s right of way, causing the accident. The primary or leading cause of these motorcycle and chopper accidents was the motorist’s failure to recognize or see the motorcycle in traffic before a collision. The famous Hurt study cited elsewhere on our site seems to parallel these findings.

In the aftermath of such an accident, it is important to have a Citrus, Hernando, Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco County motorcycle accident lawyer fighting hard for your rights and for the maximum compensation possible to cover present and future medical expenses, rehabilitative treatment, ambulance bills, lost wages, future loss of earnings, property damage, and pain and suffering.
