Motorcycle Accident Lawyers In Mesa
At Schenk Podolsky, we understand how enjoyable riding a motorcycle is and the unique dangers that come with it. Fender benders and rear-end accidents are common throughout the Valley, and they can cause serious injuries to motorcyclists.
There are a number of risks motorcyclists face on the open road:
- Two wheels provide less balance
- Motorcycles are less visible than other vehicles
- When operating a motorcycle you are directly exposed to the elements
- Motorcycles have fewer safety features such as airbags or seat belts
Even the slightest impact from a passenger car or another vehicle can lead to life-changing injuries and even death. More than 80% of motorcycle accidents result in severe or fatal injuries. More than 50% of all motorcycle accidents are caused by other vehicles.
