Terre Haute Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

A motorcycle accident is often more treacherous than an auto accident—and the victim’s rights in a motorcycle accident can be tougher to defend. The Terre Haute motorcycle accident lawyers at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin won’t back down from a challenge and are confident that we can secure the compensation you deserve.

A motorcycle crash can involve serious injuries and have devastating results. Motorcyclists are often unfairly labeled as reckless and dangerous, although most motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence of an automobile driver.

Negligent drivers are legally responsible for paying for your repairs and injuries. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, let our personal injury attorneys recover a just compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial losses.

Motorcycle Safety Tips

Often, motorcycle collisions occur as a result of another driver’s mistake. According to Motorcycle Accident Cause Factors and Identification of Countermeasures (Volume 1: Technical Report, Hurt, H.H., Ouellet, J.V. and Thom, D.R), the failure of motorists to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic is the predominate cause of motorcycle crashes.

To help prevent motorcycle accidents, follow these motorcycle safety tips provided by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation:

  • Be visible: Check all of your motorcycle’s lights and signals before going for a ride. Also, use reflective lights and be aware of other vehicle’s blind spots on the road.
  • Dress for safety: Always wear a helmet, protective eye gear, gloves, and the proper footwear. You should also dress in brightly colored clothing with thick long sleeves and long pants. If a motorcycle accident were to occur, thick clothing can help prevent road burn.
  • Mentally prepare: Before you get on a motorcycle, you should be aware of weather conditions as well as the conditions of the road you will be traveling on. While riding, it is best to constantly survey the road. Remember that motorcyclists, at times, aren’t as visible as automobiles, so always allow for extra reaction time.
  • Know your bike: It is important to practice your riding technique so you know how your bike handles before you drive on the road with other vehicles. Taking a training class on motorcycles is also a good idea.
