Motorcycle Accidents


motorcycle1NH Motorcycle Accidents – Motorcyclists are the most vulnerable to serious injury. While automobile accident deaths have decreased in recent years, motorcyclist deaths have increased every year for the past 10 years. In fact, 2007 represented the highest number of motorcyclist deaths since 1975.  Our NH motorcycle lawyers will aggressively represent you.

Motorcyclists are often the victim of other drivers not paying attention. One motorcycle accident study showed that the predominate cause of motorcycle accidents is the fault of other vehicle drivers, not the motorcyclist. Injuries from motorcycle accidents can turn your life upside down for you and your family because they often leave accident victims with lost wages for missed work and mounting doctor’s bills for medical treatment.
