What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle Bias

When star athletes have motorcycle accidents while they are engaging in behavior that violates the terms of their contract, the media pays attention. But when the average motorcycle rider is out on his bike and is struck by an automobile driver, nobody comes to the accident scene with the forethought that the driver had acted in a manner that led to the crash.

The reality is that, more often than not, the driver is responsible for causing the accident and the motorcyclist is the victim. This is becoming an ever more prevalent concern as the number of motorcycle and moped riders continues to rise. People find the freedom and efficiency afforded by operating a motorcycle to be an appealing mitigation of the traffic, parking, and economic frustrations that seem without end.

In 2007, 5,154 motorcyclists were killed in traffic accidents, a number that represents a 128 % increase since 1997, as compared to a 75 % growth in motorcycle registration over the same period. Sadly, due to media caricatures of motorcycle riders and portrayals of the most extreme elements, there is a significant misunderstanding of motorcycle ridership and culture.

Jacksonville motorcycle accident attorney Donald Guthrie has been a licensed motorcyclist for decades and understands that those who ride motorcycles are not the bugaboos of Hollywood’s stories, but normal, hardworking individuals who prefer the openness of the motorcycling experience to the confines of a car.
