We Handle All Types of Motorcycle Accidents and Injuries
Motorcycle accidents can happen in several ways, but often boil down to the fact that other motorists do not use the necessary amount of caution when sharing the road with a motorcyclist. Some common ways careless or reckless drivers cause these collisions include:
- Unsafe lane changes, often without using a signal
- Drunk driving or drugged driving
- Distracted driving
- Following too closely and having to make a sudden stop
- Failure to survey or yield right of way in left turns
Motorcyclists may also suffer injuries because of other parties. For example, poor street maintenance or a defective motorcycle part could cause a crash.
An Ohio motorcycle accident can have devastating consequences. Injuries vary widely in their nature and severity, but can include:

- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
We can handle almost any type of Ohio motorcycle accident, no matter how severe your injuries. Call us today to learn more about our services or to schedule your free case evaluation: 877-538-1116.
