ARKANSAS MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
Legal Advocacy For Injured Motorcyclists
There are 8 million registered motorcycle riders in the United States. Riding a bike can give you a sense of freedom and riding off into the sunset with the wind in your face and the sun shining down is exhilarating. Bikers, however, face more dangers on the road than other drivers.
The most recent accident stats show that 88,000 injury-causing motorcycle accidents occur annually in the U.S. 4,976 bikers lost their lives in accidents on the road. Motorcycle accident insurance claims can be more complex and require a highly experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to sift through the facts, investigate the accident, interview witnesses (if available), and build a case on your behalf.

Motorcycle Accident FAQ
- Can I still recover damages if I was not wearing a helmet?
Arkansas law requires anyone under the age of 21 to wear a helmet while on a motorcycle. If you were in a motorcycle accident while not wearing one, then you did not break the law, but you did not help your case, either. You can still recover damages by suing the driver who hit you, but the amount of damages you can recover could be lessened by your decision to not wear a helmet and potentially protect your head from severe injury.
- What kind of factors can affect the value of a motorcycle injury claim?
The worth or value of a motorcycle accident claim can increase or decrease based on numerous factors. Severe injuries will usually call for steeper damages than those related to a mild or moderate injury, for example. On the other hand, the value of a claim drops the quickest when your liability for the accident goes up, such as what can happen if you weren’t wearing a helmet when you were hit. In Arkansas, if your liability is 50% or greater, then you can’t demand compensation from the other parties at all.
- What are the most common injuries from motorcycle accidents?
Road rash is one of the most common injuries in motorcycle accidents. It occurs when a rider is thrown from their vehicle and slides along the asphalt at a high speed. Spinal cord damage and brain damage are also common, which underlines the importance of wearing as much safety equipment as you can while riding. Based on crash statistics, motorcyclists are at least 25 times more likely to be severely injured or die in an accident than other motorists.
