Motorcycle Accidents

The experience of riding a motorcycle down an open road can be adequately described only by those who have done it themselves. Every rider knows this exhilarating feeling. The camaraderie among bikers is a long lasting and unique bond. At Tenn and Tenn P.A., our New Hampshire motorcycle accident attorneys are long time riders themselves, so we understand the enjoyment — and the risks — that come with motorcycling. As is the case with all other auto accidents, it only takes a single moment for a lifetime of consequences to follow. With motorcycle accidents in particular, motorcyclists and their passengers are even more susceptible to suffering serious physical harm. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact Tenn And Tenn for a free consultation and case evaluation from attorneys who have represented injured bikers for more than 20 years.

Motorcycle Accidents Can Happen to Anyone

There is a saying among bikers, it’s not whether you will crash, but when. New Hampshire Department of Transportation statistics document that there are more than 1,000 motorcycle crashes each year. In one year alone, the total costs of hospital bills and lost wages that result from New Hampshire motorcycle accidents is $37 million, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in consideration to each traversed vehicle mile, motorcyclists are approximately 26 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a traffic collision in 2012. In that year the fatality rate for motorcyclists was 6 times the fatality rate for automobile occupants. In two-vehicle crashes, 75% of the motorcyclists collided with the vehicle in front of them.

Riders know that many motorcycle collisions involve unsafe or negligent automobile drivers. If you are injured because of a negligent driver you have a remedy and recourse under New Hampshire Law. You need the advice of an experienced NH personal injury lawyer who knows how to best represent and protect your interests. Our motorcycle injury lawyers are long-time riders themselves and have been representing injured bikers for more than 20 years.

Although negligent drivers are not the only cause of motorcyclist injury and death, many drivers do not take the required precaution of checking blind spots for motorcyclists when changing lanes. Drivers also tend to not check rear view and side mirrors when changing lanes, which puts motorcyclists in an extremely vulnerable position. These motorcycle accident causes in addition to hazardous roads, motorcycle design defects, and other various causes, can all inflict catastrophic injuries to motorcyclists. Lower-extremity injuries are most common in motorcycle accidents, but their head, chest, and abdominal injuries tend to be more severe.

Some common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Herniated discs
  • Neck injury
  • Lacerations

The various injuries that can result from a motorcycle accident in New Hampshire not only cause a victim much physical pain and emotional grief, but can also inflict great financial hardship on a victim and his or her family. Even for those that have good health insurance and medical coverage, the expenses required to recover from a motorcycle accident can quickly add up. This is why many motorcycle accident victims seek compensation from those responsible for causing their collision. However, it should be noted that a motorcycle driver or passenger in the State of New Hampshire only has three (3) years from the day of the accident to file suit.

New Hampshire Law Provides for Compensation to Injured Bikers

Motorcyclists injured in a New Hampshire accident can file a legal claim against any responsible party. Having an experienced motorcycle injury lawyers in your corner is the critical first step to a fulsome recovery. Winning your legal action requires meeting your burden of proof by showing that:

  1. The defendant, usually the other driver, owed a duty to the rider, the plaintiff;
  2. The defendant breached that duty of care; and
  3. The rider’s injuries were proximately caused by the defendant’s actions.

All drivers have an obligation and legal duty to drive reasonably. A driver who changes lanes without looking, texts while driving, or runs a red light, has breached this universal duty. If you have been injured due to another’s negligence, our motorcycle injury lawyers can help.

Injured bikers have three years from the date of the accident to file a negligence suit. Time is of the essence. If you do not file a claim within the Statute of Limitations, you will not thereafter be able to obtain a recovery.
