Motorcyclists Particularly Vulnerable
Motorcycle Accident Lawyer: Marchese Injury Law is located in Portland, Maine.
Motorcycles are a wonderful way to enjoy Maine’s beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, driving a motorcycle also involves unique dangers: You are less visible to other drivers. It takes longer to stop a motorcycle than it takes for a car, and you are less protected than someone in a car.
Distracted drivers talking on their cell phones or otherwise “multi-tasking,” inexperienced or impaired drivers and unsafe road conditions all can be particularly hazardous for a motorcycle, leaving you more vulnerable to accidents and serious injury.
In the vast majority of motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle, the other driver caused the accident by failing to yield the right-of-way. Motorcyclists are often forced by the other driver’s negligence to make emergency evasive maneuvers, resulting in accidents that may or may not involve collisions.
In these cases, the expertise of your attorney may make all the difference in whether you recover compensation or whether your claim is denied. With our long history of successfully pursuing motorcycle-related claims, Marchese Injury Law, P.A. is yourexpert legal source.
