Motorcycles represent only about 2% of all vehicles on the road in North Carolina.  Yet, motorcycles account for about 10% of the fatalities on North Carolina roads.  A serious motorcycle accident can significantly disrupt your life.  Motorcycle accident victims in North Carolina typically have significant medical bills and in some cases lost wages from work.  Getting a motorcycle accident victim fairly compensated for these losses is what we do every day with personal attention and dedication to our clients.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

A majority of North Carolina motorcycle wrecks are single vehicle wrecks.  Of the crashes involving other motor vehicles, close to half are the fault of someone other than the motorcyclist.

The most frequent North Carolina motorcycle wreck involving another vehicle is when the other vehicle does not yield the right of way at an intersection.  A significant percentage of the wrecks involved another vehicle turning into the motorcyclist’s path.  Under North Carolina law, a motorcycle traveling straight has the right of way and any vehicle turning left across the path of the motorcycle must yield the right of way.  This “failure to yield” law often serves as the basis for liability in a motorcycle accident case and, in some cases, the driver will be cited under N.C.G.S. 20-155 or N.C.G.S. 20-160.1.

Another significant cause of motorcycle wrecks is a head-on collision that results from a vehicle failing to maintain its lane.  Under North Carolina law, all vehicles must be operated upon the right half of the roadway except where under limited circumstances.  A failure to maintain a vehicle in the right half of the roadway can result in a serious head-on collision with an on-coming motorcyclist.  When these accidents occur, the other driver is frequently cited under N.C.G.S. 20-146 for a lane control violation.  This citation can also serve as the basis for liability in a serious North Carolina motorcycle accident.

There are many other causes of serious North Carolina motorcycle wrecks including roadway defects such as uneven pavement and excessive gravel.  Our Raleigh, NC based motorcycle lawyers have experience will all types of serious motorcycle accident claims.

Common Injuries in North Carolina Motorcycle Wrecks

Motorcycle wreck victims can have very serious injuries.  A motorcycle accident victim is extremely vulnerable when hit by another vehicle and this overall lack of protection can lead to life-altering injuries including:

  • Severe road rash
  • Broken bones
  • Torn ligaments and torn tendons
  • Head injuries
  • Burns
  • Loss of limbs
  • Spinal injuries
  • Death

In many cases, the motorcycle lawyer’s hardest job is identifying all sources of financial recovery for a motorcycle wreck victim.  Understanding the various North Carolina insurance laws and laws regarding potentially liability parties is essential to helping a North Carolina motorcycle wreck victim.  Our motorcycle wreck lawyers serve all of North Carolina and can help you or your family obtain the maximum recovery for your claim under the law.

How Much Is My North Carolina Motorcycle Accident Claim Worth

This is a question that we hear all the time from potential motorcycle wreck clients.  The answer depends on many factors including the severity of the injuries and the available resources (typically insurance) to pay the claim.

Other factors can significantly influence the value of a motorcycle accident claim including the amount of time missed from work by the victim, the time necessary to recover from the injuries, the degree of recovery from the injuries, and the nature of the conduct by the other driver.  Regarding the other driver, in any case where the other driver was impaired, the value of the claim should increase for the victim.
