The Hidden Danger of Riding a Motorcycle or ATV
Motorcyclists have the same rights on the road as all other motorists. In fact, they should be treated with even more respect, since they are much more vulnerable and prone to severe injury.
Unfortunately, motorcycles are often overlooked by inattentive vehicle drivers or looked at with disdain by others. A moment of distracted car driving or a truck driver's failure to signal a lane change could result in the serious injury of a motorcyclist; in a split second, a crash could change lives forever. The same is true of ATV operators; the nature of all terrain vehicles leaves little protection for the driver, and since these are often taken "off road," injuries can occur in remote areas, delaying much-needed medical attention that could make the difference between life and death.
Another person's negligence, whether it be a car driver or an ATV manufacturer, can cause serious injuries like head injuries, neck injuries or road rash. They can even be fatal. To recover compensation to pay the expenses you have incurred as a result of your injuries (including medical bills, lost wages and property damage), you need experienced and skilled legal representation. You need the attorneys of Mayer & Rosenberg. We are here to help you hold those irresponsible parties accountable.
