Because motorcycles are smaller and have less protection than cars, motorcyclists often suffer serious injuries or death when they are involved in accidents with cars. Many motorcyclists are hit at intersections when drivers fail to look for motorcycles.
At The Brewer Law Firm, we’ve spent more than 40 years protecting the rights of individuals who were injured because of another party’s negligence. Our Phoenix motorcycle accident attorneys represent individuals who were injured in motorcycle accidents involving:
The laws governing whether motorcyclists are required to wear helmets vary by state. Some states require all motorcyclists to wear helmets. Other states have no helmet laws. Others still, like Arizona, only have helmet laws for some riders. In Arizona, all riders age 17 and younger are required to wear helmets.
Regardless of whether you were wearing a helmet, if you were injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by the negligence of another driver, you may be eligible for compensation.
For example, helmets do not prevent injuries to your legs, arms, chest and internal organs. Similarly, helmets do not prevent all types of spinal cord injuries. Remember, helmets are intended to prevent or minimize head and face injuries only. But, even then, the impact of the crash may be so severe that no helmet would have meaningfully prevented or minimized the head or face injuries. Furthermore, helmet designs have limits too, meaning your head or face injury may be of a type that would occur even if you had worn a perfectly designed and fitted helmet.
If you suffered injuries — including head injuries or spinal cord injuries — because of a motorcycle accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, we can help you receive the compensation you need — regardless of whether you were wearing your helmet.
