Get Trusted Legal Advice From Lance Andrew, P.C.

motorcycle accident utah

Both of the founding partners of our Salt Lake City, Utah, personal injury law firm are motorcyclists. Dustin Lance has ridden motorcycles for more than forty years, including many years as a competitive rider.

We understand motorcycle crashes and are dedicated to protecting the legal rights of our fellow riders in Salt Lake City and all of Utah.

Due to our experience in handling motorcycle crash cases, we know how to confront complex claim issues from the outset, and our motorcycle wreck injury law firm has a proven track record of substantial recoveries in motorcycle injury accident cases.

 

Experienced Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Most motorcyclists are good, conscientious riders. They obey speed limits and traffic regulations, maintain proper following distances, signal their lane changes with blinkers and hand signals, and even keep their headlights on at all times. Despite all of this, drivers don't see or don’t look for motorcycles, ultimately causing crashes.

The very freedoms that attract riders to motorbikes are a riders’ greatest enemy during a motorcycle accident. Even when you wear a helmet and protective clothing, you are at risk for substantial personal injury when you are involved in a motorcycle accident crash.

Sadly, we have handled far too many motorcycle wreck wrongful death cases. Our extensive experience has prepared us to take on your case to get you the best possible outcome.

 

Facts About Motorcycle Accidents

Unfortunately, motorcycle accident personal injury cases represent a disproportionate number of the most serious injury and death cases we see in Utah.

This isn't a random statistic. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are 8 times more likely to be injured and 32 times more likely to die in a crash than other motor vehicle accident victims.

 

The Risks of Motorcycle Riding

There are a number of factors that contribute to the risk of motorcycle riding.

Risk factors for motorcycle riders include:

  • Less stability than 4-wheeled vehicles
  • Not wearing a helmet or protective clothing
  • Poor visibility in bad weather conditions

Risk factors due to drivers of other vehicles include:

  • Difficulty to see motorcycles
  • Negligent driving
  • Traffic violations
  • Fatigue
  • Alcohol

It’s important to understand the factors that increase your risk of motorcycle injury so that you can do your best to avoid them. Whether you ride frequently or not, it’s crucial to minimize your risk of becoming involved in an accident. However, there’s only so much you can do. If you’re hurt because of a negligent driver, we will help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

 

Compensatory Damages for Losses

If you’ve suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident, you will need the help and guidance of a personal injury attorney to file a claim.

Motorcycle accidents often include several types of injuries, and determining the damages properly requires the assistance of an experienced motorcycle injury attorney.

Types of motorcycle injuries can include:

  • Abrasions, contusions, and lacerations
  • Sprained or torn ligaments, tendons, or muscles
  • Collapsed and punctured lungs
  • Road rash
  • Broken bones
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain trauma

If you’re a motorcycle accident victim, you need to hire a trusted personal injury attorney. The damages to be recovered in a motorcycle injury case can be substantial, and it’s critical to work with an experienced personal injury attorney who knows how to fight for the compensation you deserve.
