MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER IN WHEELING, WV
FIGHTING FOR PEOPLE INJURED IN MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
If you ride a motorcycle in West Virginia, you know how dangerous it can be. Motorists are sometimes blind to motorcycle riders. Even when you have obeyed the law and operated your motorcycle in a safe manner, you still run the chance of someone negligently cutting you off or running into you. Without the benefit of airbags, crumple zones, and other safety features available in most automobiles, motorcycle riders are often seriously injured or even killed in car-on-motorcycle accidents.
If you have been injured, or a loved one has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, our Wheeling motorcycle accident attorney understands the pain and suffering that you are experiencing. Unlike the big law firms, we take a personal approach to every personal injury case we handle. We care about our clients and never push them into a settlement that is not in their best interest. Many big law firms operate like personal injury mills, churning out fast settlements that may not be the maximum amount that you are entitled to under West Virginia law. Fast settlements will line their pockets but may leave you without the care and compensation you deserve. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, our West Virginia personal injury attorney can help you get the medical treatment you need and the compensation you deserve. Call us today. Consultations are free and we never charge you a dime until you get you paid.

COMMON CAUSES AND EFFECTS OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
Our Wheeling motorcycle accident lawyer can tell you that no two motorcycle accidents in West Virginia are alike. Motorcycle accidents and motorcycle accident injuries are as unique as the people who ride them. However, in general terms, West Virginia motorcycle accidents fall into one of the following categories:
- The solo motorcycle accident. When you are on two wheels, encountering an obstacle on the roadway, even a small one, may result in loss of control and you skidding down the road without your bike. Getting cut-off on a motorcycle may force you into a median or another vehicle. Road construction or a sudden change in road conditions may also result in you being injured in a motorcycle accident. Just because no one else was directly involved in your motorcycle accident, does not mean that your injuries are not the result of someone else’s negligence.
- Car or truck crash with a motorcycle. Motorcycle accidents with cars, trucks and other vehicles are the most common way that people are injured in a motorcycle crash. Despite many advances in vehicle safety equipment, cars and trucks are still operated by humans and they are prone to errors. People fail to check their blind spots or back out their driveways into the path of motorcycle riders every day. In car-on-motorcycle accidents, the person driving the car almost always say that they did not see the motorcycle rider before the crash. Unfortunately, motorcycle riders almost never walk away from this type of accident without injuries.
- Motorcycle accidents caused by car doors. Anyone who has ever driven a car, truck or motorcycle has had someone open a car door in front of them without checking to see if someone else is coming. In a car, this may only result in a minor crash, but on a motorcycle, this type of accident may result in tragedy. Striking a car door on a motorcycle can result in the motorcycle rider being thrown from their bike, causing head, back, and internal injuries. Broken bones are very common, and death frequently occurs.
