Motorcycle Accidents in Delaware
A motorcycle accident in Delaware is often a life-changing experience that occurs within a matter of seconds. Motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable when they are involved in crashes on our state’s roadways. This is because riders have little protection from the force and impact of a major crash. After a collision occurs, riders can be thrown from their bikes which further increases the risk of serious injuries and death. Motorcycle collisions can take place in a heartbeat and riders should always ensure that they are operating their motorcycle in the safest manner possible in order to lower some of the risks associated with riding a motorcycle.
Motorcyclists have the same rights as any other vehicle or vehicle operator. A motorcycle rider who was hurt in a crash can recover for compensation their injuries suffered as a result of the collision. For some people, this recovery can be substantial depending on the nature and extent of the injuries. During this time, however, your time is best spent achieving your healing and recovery. It is best to let your compassionate and skilled lawyer handle the legal details of the claim.
At Murphy & Landon, we strongly believe that no injured victim should be left financially responsible for someone else’s carelessness. Although motorcycle accidents present a complicated case for many reasons, riders should always remember that they could have a strong legal case to recover compensation from the negligent driver.
