Motorcycle Accident Frequently Asked Questions
How many people are injured or killed in motorcycle accidents?
Approximately 2,000 motorcyclists die each year in the United States and about 50,000 are harmed. Nearly 80% of all motorcycle accidents in the United States result in either injury or even death.
What it the main cause of death in motorcycle accidents?
Head injuries are the leading cause of death among bikers. Unfortunately and obviously, there is limited to no protection between your head and the ground. Your helmet offers very limited protection.
How can I protect myself as a biker in motorcycle accidents?
Ride defensively and be aware of all of your surroundings. Also, follow the laws and do not exceed the posted speed limit. In addition to wearing a helmet, other safety gear—such as eye protection, gloves, appropriate footwear, leg guards and jackets—can help reduce your risk of serious harm if you are involved in an accident.
What should I do if I am involved in an accident?
First, seek appropriate emergency medical attention and notify the authorities, which is usually the Idaho Highway Patrol or the Coeur d’Alene Police Department. Then you should contact The Sargent Firm to allow us to start collecting evidence for your claim. Motorcycle law can be complex, but as with all accidents, there are steps you should follow at the scene of the accident.
What if a loved one has been killed in an accident?
In these most unfortunate situations, a family member may be entitled to a claim for wrongful death depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident. Our law office will work with you on how to best pursue a wrongful death claim.
There are some things you can do to avoid being involved in a motorcycle accident:
- Be as visible to others on the road as possible. Keep your headlights on even during the daytime, wear reflective protective gear, and equip your motorcycle with a fairing or windshield.
- Get the appropriate training. Motorcyclists who are well trained on how to ride and care for their bikes are less likely to be involved in a motorcycle accident.
- Wear the appropriate gear. Helmets for motorcyclists are like seatbelts for drivers of vehicles. Wearing a helmet will reduce the risk of suffering a traumatic brain injury and, by extension, death. Other safety gear includes eye protection, protective gloves, appropriate footwear, leg guards, and jackets.
- ALWAYS ride sober. Alcohol and other drugs affect judgment as well as your ability to respond to stimuli. Alcohol and drugs absolutely do not mix with riding a motorcycle. Remember, it’s not just your life on the line, but all occupants of the road.
- Follow the Law. Do not speed. Be familiar with the local traffic laws and regulations of the road. Learn how to get a motorcycle license in Idaho.
