Why Serious Motorcycle Accidents Occur
The increase of traffic on United States roads means an increased risk of accidents for motorcycle riders. More and more drivers on the road fail to see motorcycle riders when they should. They change lanes, often without signaling and crash into motorcycle riders. They fail to stop in time, or engage in other negligent or reckless actions like speeding, talking on cellphones and driving while intoxicated or distracted.
This negligence causes serious personal injury, including loss of limb, traumatic brain injury, paralysis, spinal cord injury and severe burns. But, at Garton & Vogt, P.C., we hold negligent drivers responsible for the pain they cause in motorcycle accidents.
At Garton & Vogt, P.C., one of our lawyers — Arthur A. Garton — has ridden motorcycles for the last 41 years. More than just understanding the law on motorcycle accidents, he understands the people who ride motorcycles. Mr. Garton truly understands the risks motorcycle riders experience on the roads, including negligent drivers who just don't see motorcycles when they should.
