Distracted Driving Motorcycle Accident
Were You Injured by a Distracted Driver?
20% of all injury crashes involve some form of distracted driving. When you couple that alarming statistic with drivers who don't share the road with motorcyclists, it leads to dangerous – and sometimes deadly – results.
Distracted driving accidents are more common than ever before. With mobile phones, GPS, and other potential hazards, motorcycle riders are in greater danger than ever before.
If you've been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a distracted driver, you could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost time at work. Call us for a free consultation at 412-394-1000 or simply complete the form to the right.
Distracted Driving Accidents – A National Concern
Every day there are more than 9 motorists killed and 1,153 people injured due to distracted driving accidents. Because motorcycles are open vehicles, motorcycle riders find themselves at an increased risk of injury in the event of an accident.
Texting and driving has become one of the leading causes of distracted driving accidents. However, drivers shift their attention from the road in other ways as well. Whether they're adjusting the radio, eating behind the wheel, putting on makeup, or simply not paying attention to their surroundings, these behaviors put motorcycle riders at risk.
The unfortunate truth is that motorcyclists stand less of a chance of being seen by other motorists. While most drivers see cars approaching, they might miss a motorcyclist. This can lead to devastating crashes and severe injuries.
Time is Against You
After an accident injury, the last thing you're probably thinking about are statutes of limitations, collecting evidence, or even hiring an attorney. We understand the stress associated with accidents, because we see how severe injuries impact our clients every day.
That's why we're here to help. It's important to understand the time limits to your claim. They're also known as statutes of limitations:
Statutes of limitations restrict the time period that a person can file a lawsuit.
A personal injury action must be filed within two years of the date when the injury occurred.
However, there is a "discovery rule," which, in limited cases, extends the time for filing a personal injury action.
