Virginia Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Tirelessly Fighting for Bikers’ Rights

Although motorcycle accidents do not necessarily occur as frequently as other types of auto accidents, motorcycle crashes are much more likely to result in serious injury or death. In fact, according to federal government statistics, motorcycle accidents are 35 times more likely on average to result in death than automobile collisions. Due to their small size and lack of protection, motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries to the motorcycle driver. Many times, automobile drivers do not even see a motorcycle until after a crash has occurred. Even the safest of motorcyclists are essentially at the mercy of their surroundings. With a rise in distracted driving, drunk driving, and other factors, motorcycle accidents have become more common.

The team of trial lawyers at Breit Cantor Grana Buckner handles motorcycle accident cases on a regular basis. What sets us apart from other law firms is the unique experience of Michael Imprevento, the head of the motorcycle accident practice group at our firm. As a biker himself, Mike brings considerable expertise and practical experience to bear for clients injured in motorcycle accidents. Mike rides everything from sports bikes to full-size Harleys and held two land speed records on a Harley Davidson Electra Glide with the ECTA after races at Maxton NC. He also has a popular local radio show, The Saturday Show with Mike Imprevento on AM 790 WNIS in Norfolk, Virginia that airs each Saturday from 2-4pm, where he frequently discusses topics of interest to motorcyclists.

If you or a loved one have been injured while riding a motorcycle, you should seek the help of a skilled Virginia motorcycle accident lawyer from Breit Cantor. We know how to achieve big results and are backed by more than 150 verdicts and settlements in excess of one million dollars.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

While some motorcycle accidents may occur due to inclement weather or poor road conditions, a large percentage of these accidents are due to automobile drivers. Negligent or careless driving could very quickly become a catastrophe when motorcycles are involved.

Most motorcycle accidents involve absolutely no fault on the part of the biker. As an avid biker, Attorney Mike Imprevento understands the most common ways in which motorcycle collisions occur. Chief among these is the distracted driver who simply does not pay attention as the result of cellphone use or texting while driving. Many cases involve a turning driver who doesn’t see what should be seen and causes a collision. Tragically, many distracted drivers are also under the influence of alcohol, and Mike has pursued successfully punitive damages against these defendants.

Take a look at some of the top causes of motorcycle accidents involving automobiles:

  • An automobile failed to completely stop before turning right on red
  • An automobile ran a red light before seeing a motorcycle
  • An automobile driver was distracted by passengers or by a phone
  • An automobile did not give right of way to a motorcycle
  • An automobile driver was speeding
  • An automobile driver didn’t check blind spots before changing lanes

All of these causes of motorcycle accidents are completely preventable. Whether you were injured by an automobile, defective manufacturing, or other factors, our detail-oriented Virginia motorcycle accident attorneys can exhaustively investigate every aspect of your accident in order to hold the responsible parties liable for your injuries. You deserve to be well taken care of and shouldn’t have to pay the price for someone else’s negligence.

Injuries Resulting from Motorcycle Accidents

A common theme in motorcycle crashes involves the limited visibility of motorcycles due to their smaller size. Because of their limited visibility, the most dangerous situation for bikers by far is when cars make left-hand turns. This situation frequently results in the bikers taking evasive action to avoid a crash by laying the bike down. In some cases when such evasive maneuvering is impossible, the result is a head-on collision.

Either way, the injuries resulting from these motorcycle crashes can be devastating and often involve:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Road rash
  • Spinal injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neurologic injuries
  • Permanent disability
  • Life-threatening injuries
