Arizona Motorcycle Lawyers with Offices in Tucson and Yuma

Motorcycle crashes involve unique issues of liability, injury causation and accident reconstruction. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents account for a disproportionate number of deaths and catastrophic injuries on our roads. The National Highway Safety and Transportation Administration (NHTSA) reported 5,154 motorcyclists were killed and an additional 88,000 were injured in traffic crashes in the United States in 2007. Arizona had 142 motorcycle fatalities.
 Many drivers ignore motorcycles on the highway or fail to see them, even when they have the legal right of way. For these reasons, motorcycle riders are at higher risk for death or serious injuries than other vehicle drivers. Motorcycle riders suffer the consequences of these types of drivers and at Shultz & Rollins, Ltd. we know how to protect the rights of motorcyclists.

Complete and thorough investigation of any motorcycle accident is critical. An accident reconstruction should include field of vision for the motorcyclist as well as the other vehicle operator, possible vision obstructions, speeds, stopping distances and issues of highway design. Reconstruction of motorcycle accidents often requirse prompt location and identification of debris, skidmarks, gouge marks or other witness marks produced by the impact between the bike, the other vehicle and the pavement. It is important that this type of investigation be done as soon as possible after the accident to guarantee that this type of evidence is not lost. Due to these unique considerations, if you are injured in a motorcycle accident, or if you have lost a loved one in a collision, you should speak to an attorney who understands motorcycle accident reconstruction and is experienced in handling these types of claims.
