Westminster, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/24/2014 -- In 2008, 5,290 people were killed in motorcycle accidents across the United States, and, unfortunately, motorcycle accidents and fatalities have steadily increased each year since. Even when riders are not killed in motorcycle accidents, they are often seriously and sometimes permanently injured. In 2013, for example, 114,000 people were involved in reported motorcycle accidents that resulted in serious personal injuries and/or property damage.
In many instances, the motorcycle drivers themselves were not to blame for these tragic accidents. Most motorcyclists are skilled and experienced at safe cycling. It is other drivers who are often the cause of these accidents.
However, because of the “stigma” attached to motorcycling as a dangerous and carelessly treated activity, many motorcyclists never come forward and get the justice they deserve.
There are, however, attorneys that specialize in helping these victims to recover costs incurred due to hospital and medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other accident-related expenses.
