If you’re a motorcyclist, you know you have many things to worry about when you head out on Virginia’s roadways. Ice, loose pavement, gravel, fallen limbs, potholes, and wild animals are just a few of the dangers you must constantly be aware of while riding. But the biggest risk motorcyclists like you face is other drivers.
Most drivers are on the lookout for other passenger vehicles—not motorcyclists. That means they don’t always take the necessary precautions when turning left, driving through intersections, or changing lanes. When drivers aren’t looking out for motorcyclists, any riders near them face serious risks. And when their negligence results in accidents, we believe they should be held accountable.
At Skolrood Law Firm, we know the serious injuries that can result when motorcyclists are struck by cars, trucks, and SUVs. Victims often need immediate medical treatment, with some becoming temporarily or permanently disabled. Many suffer life-threatening injuries, even when they take all the proper precautions and wear safety gear such as a helmet, riding jacket, riding pants, and boots.
We believe that innocent injured victims should never have to pay out of pocket for their own expenses, and that includes motorcycle accident victims. But we also know that insurance companies are frequently biased against motorcyclists. Bikers might even believe that they contributed to their own accidents—even when evidence shows that isn’t the case.
