Do You Need a Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyer in the Phoenix Area?
Most of the year, Arizona has the ideal climate for motorcycle riders. Whether used for recreation or daily transportation, motorcycles are an excellent alternative to cars and trucks because of their fuel economy and price. Both motorcycle drivers and passengers should use safety equipment, such as helmets, gloves, boots and other protective clothing, each time they ride, but motorcycle accidents – and injuries – can still happen.
When involved in a collision with another motor vehicle, there is very little protection between the rider and the ground. As a result, motorcycle riders are often more likely to suffer serious and devastating injuries than the driver or passenger of an enclosed vehicle.
Fortunately, under Arizona law, injured motorcycle riders do have rights and remedies. In most cases, motorcycle accidents are not the fault of the motorcyclist, which means an injury can be grounds for taking legal action to recover damages.
