Hernando County Motorcycle Crash Attorneys Whittel & Melton
Motorcycle riding can be a means of transportation, and some ride for recreational reasons while others make it a lifestyle. In Hernando County, motorcycle riding can be a year-long activity whether for everyday commuting or weekend group rides. While motorcyclists are required to possess the skills necessary to operate their vehicles safely on the road, sometimes safety is not always within their control.
Motorcyclists have the same responsibilities and rights as other motorists sharing the roadways. When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident due to the negligent or reckless actions of another person, they have the right to seek damages from the at-fault party liable for their injuries.
The Hernando County Motorcycle Accident Attorneys at Whittel & Melton are committed to protecting the rights of riders in Spring Hill, Brooksville, Ridge Manor, Weeki Wachee, Hernando Beach and Masaryktown.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents have a wide range of causes. Common reasons for an accident can include reckless drivers, dangerous roads, vehicle malfunctions and distracted or inattentive drivers. Due to the fact that motorcycles offer very little protection to riders, even the slightest tap from another vehicle on the highway or a small pothole in the road can result in a catastrophic collision for a biker.
Motorcycle accidents can result in life threatening injuries and even death. Physical damages may include broken bones, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and paralysis. Along with treating the injuries suffered, other concerns must be addressed following a motorcycle collision such as medical costs and financial losses. These worries can be just as great for the victim and their family. By contacting the Hernando County Motorcycle Accident Attorneys at Whittel & Melton right after an accident has occurred, we can start working towards a full and fair recovery immediately so that your worries can be eased as soon as possible.
