Motorcycles & Automobiles Share the Road

Motorcyclist deaths occur 27 times more frequently than fatalities in other motor vehicles. Everyone must take part in ensuring safety for motorcycles out on the road by driving defensively and staying alert. While it’s the job of motorcyclists to be visible, it’s the job of all motorists to be aware of their surroundings and watch for motorcyclists.

Cars Cause the Majority of Motorcycle Accidents

When driving in Utah, it’s important for drivers of motor vehicles to always have an eye out for motorcyclists.

  • Motorcycles can be closer than they appear. People who drive cars are used to objects of a larger size in their mirrors. Motorcycles appear much smaller and appear to be further away. A car can easily change lanes or make a left-hand turn into a motorcycle at an intersection or driveway.
  • Drivers fail to check blind spots for motorcyclists. Drivers glance into their mirrors to change lanes and fail to see the motorcycle in their blind spot or change lanes, cut the motorcycle off often causing the rider to crash. And, although motorcycles have the ability to change lanes quickly it is the car driver’s responsibility to make sure the lane is safe to enter, not matter how quickly the situation changes.

There are many reasons why a car could hit a motorcycle, but the most common are mistakes in judgment made by the vehicle driver.

  • Always check their blind spots!
  • Take extra caution when pulling out before motorcyclists. Motorcycles may be closer than they appear – because of their size, your eyes might trick you. If you see a motorcycle heading down the road at a high speed, wait for them to pass before pulling out.
  • Take extra caution when passing.
  • Give extra room when driving behind a motorcyclist. Motorcyclists will react more quickly than other vehicles because they are so much smaller. Rear ending a motorcyclist could cost them their life.
  • Increase your following distance at night.
  • Stay in your lane. Weaving back and forth between traffic increases your chances of striking a motorcyclist.
  • Communicate with motorcyclists and other drivers. It’s important to
  • Intersections can be deadly. Intersections can leave dangerous blind spots. Always look both ways before entering an intersection.

    A motorcycle rider is generally more severely injured than a driver in a car of the same accident. There is almost no protection when riding a motorcycle. In Utah, as long as the motorcycle rider is 21 years of age, has taken a motorcycle safety course and has health insurance, in addition to motorcycle insurance, a helmet is not required.

    • Whiplash
    • Burns and Scars
    • Neck and Spine Injuries
    • Wrongful Death
    • Knee Injuries
    • Paralysis
    • Permanent Disability

    Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Injuries

    In serious accidents, the injured victim or their surviving family can be compensated for pain, suffering or wrongful death. There is no way to repair the damage to body and mind, but a settlement or jury award can go a long way in helping pay for time missed from work, medical expenses and future medical expenses or recuperative care. Our attorneys are skilled at negotiating with insurance companies, but if a settlement cannot be reached, we are prepared to take your case to court and pray for relief for your injury. More about damage caps in Utah.

    In addition to the economic losses, an injury can impose on you and your family, you may also have a claim for Loss of Consortium. Due to the nature of injuries commonly afflicted upon motorcycle riders when they are in an accident, it is possible for your spouse to prove they have also been damaged. Loss of Consortium would include lack of intimacy and sexual relations, activities that would be lost in the case of paralysis, but possibly in other injuries to the lower part of the body.

    If you or your family member has suffered a serious injury in a bike crash, our attorneys can work to ensure that you recover the compensation your family needs for medical expenses, lost wages, and long-term care needs. Our attorneys will fully assist your immediate and long-term financial needs to ensure that you recover the compensation you deserve.

    Can't I just represent myself?
    When it comes to insurance litigation related to personal injury, the legal process can be complex and overwhelming, especially for someone who is not well-versed in the law. That’s where a personal injury lawyer comes in. They have extensive knowledge and experience in handling cases similar to yours and can provide you with invaluable assistance.

    A personal injury lawyer can help you gather evidence, negotiate with insurance adjusters, and file a lawsuit if necessary. They can also advise you on your legal rights and options, and help you understand the potential outcomes of your case. Additionally, they can handle all the legal paperwork and deadlines, allowing you to focus on your recovery.

    Will my lawyer loan me money for my bills?

    When you’re unable to work because of your personal injury, you may be faced with difficult decisions related to how you will pay for groceries, mortgages, utility bills, and/or other household bills. Your personal injury lawyer can seek compensation for you for wages lost as a result of the limitations imposed by treatment and recovery periods needed as a result of your injury. Usually, those efforts take the form of a claim for lost wages.

    Should you document the accident?

    One of the initial things that a person should do after he or she is injured is record everything that he or she can about his or her accident and its impact on his/her daily life. It could be tempting to rely on memory but actual written notes usually prove very critical to receiving financial compensation for losses suffered as a result of an injury. See our Checklist to ensure you don’t leave out any important information when documenting your personal injury. You may need to keep a record of documents such as Police Reports, Medical Bills, Pictures and Video from the Crash, and a Journal of the Crash

    Should I take the insurance settlement?

    No matter how much pressure you may feel from the adjuster, do not accept a settlement from your insurance company before you speak with a personal injury lawyer. Keep in mind that the insurance adjuster’s job is to protect the bottom line of the insurance company. Even though they were assigned to your case, their main reason for employment is to reduce costs for the insurance company. Speak with a lawyer about your options first – there are no risks or fees when you meet with a lawyer for a free consultation.

    What is a personal injury lawyer?

    A personal injury lawyer advocates for injury/accident victims to recover compensation from parties whose actions or negligence contributed to the cause of the injuries.

    A personal injury lawyer’s services usually include:

    • Communicating – on the client’s behalf – with insurance companies, medical billing, law enforcement, court systems, and other involved parties
    • Gathering documentation to calculate financial damages, and pain and suffering
    • Explaining the personal injury case process, including deadlines, and the range of possible outcomes of the case
    • Negotiating with insurance companies, medical care billers, and other sources of costs or compensation
    • Representing the client in formal legal proceedings, including mediation and, when needed, trying the client’s case in court

    Working on a contingency fee basis, meaning, clients only pay legal fees if the lawyer wins them compensation for the injury.

    Read more about how personal injury attorneys establish fault and prove negligence in a personal injury case.

    How do I decide on a personal injury lawyer?

    Most people search online for a lawyer. Reading client reviews on Google, Facebook, Avvo or Yelp is a good way to get a feel for a particular lawyer. Others ask friends to find recommendations for a personal injury lawyer. As a rule of thumb, look for personal injury lawyers who have no up-front payment, can respond to phone calls and emails quickly, have a competitive contingency fee rate, and have a vast understanding of how to get maximum fair compensation in your case.
