Motorcycle accidents are very serious and often fatal. If you or a loved one was hurt in a motorcycle collision caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. You deserve strong legal representation and an attorney who will help you exercise your legal rights. Even if you have been offered what seems like a generous settlement from the driver responsible for your accident, do not accept it without first having a skilled attorney review the terms. We can help determine if the settlement amount is really in your favor and push for more if it isn’t. If they still refuse to give you what is fair, we will take your case to trial.

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
Even when motorcyclists follow all state-enforced safety protocols, such as wearing a suitable helmet and protective gear, they are left with comparatively little defense in the event of a collision with a car or truck. Motorcyclists are much more prone to severe injuries in a crash with another vehicle, simply because they are more vulnerable and exposed. In addition to the threat of other vehicles striking them, motorcyclists must contend with common road hazards like potholes, cracks, and/or slick roads.
According to 2017 data from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), about 25 people die every year in motorcycle crashes in Hawaii, and many more are left seriously injured. While there is no typical motorcycle crash, what is common is that these accidents are often violent, and injuries are catastrophic. As reported by NHTSA, more than 80% of all motorcycle accidents result in injury or death to the motorcyclist.
