Riding a motorcycle can be one of the most exciting and thrilling experiences of a lifetime. Many people ride as a hobby, and many more ride because it is a part of who they are. Unfortunately, there is a greater risk on the roads to motorcyclists than to other vehicles. Motorcycles are much smaller and do not give the rider any of the protections of a sedan. This makes accidents much more catastrophic for motorcycle riders.
Attorney Brian Steed Tatum has years of experience in helping North Carolina’s and South Carolina’s injured motorcyclists and their families in dealing with the devastating consequences of head-on collisions. His experience is put to work for each client in order to ensure that injured clients receive the fullest compensation allowed by law.
Head-on impacts occur when the front ends of two vehicles crash into each other. These accidents can occur when one vehicle veers off into oncoming traffic and causes a head-on crash with oncoming vehicles. Head-on collisions involving motorcycles often result in catastrophic injury or death. Unfortunately, this type of accident is not uncommon. Head-on crashes occur more frequently than rear-end impacts. Even if the motorcyclist avoids a head-on collision with another vehicle, the quick maneuvers that a rider would have to execute may cause a loss of control and an accident.
Motorcyclists are at a huge disadvantage in the event of an accident because riders are unprotected for the most part. Even helmets, while extremely beneficial, do not provide much protection to a rider who is thrown from his or her motorcycle in this type of accident. Unfortunately, when a head-on collision involves a motorcycle, the motorcycle rider is usually always injured because he or she has the least amount of protection.
Victims in a head-on collision can seek relief for their damages from any and all responsible parties. Victims can be compensated for things like injuries, medical bills, lost wages, mental distress, and other losses. It is not always easy to prove that another party was at fault for the accident, and sometimes it is difficult to determine all injuries sustained immediately after the accident. An experienced attorney can provide victims with legal representation to ensure the victims know their rights.
The Tatum Law Firm is dedicated to protecting the legal rights of motorcyclists in North Carolina and South Carolina. When an accident occurs because of a driver’s negligence, it is even more important to reach out to an experienced lawyer to help ensure that the injured is compensated for his or her losses.
