Motorcycle accidents are on the rise

Many residents of Cary and the surrounding Raleigh area enjoy riding motorcycles.

Motorcycles are a way to get to a destination and also to enjoy the beautiful scenery that surrounds us. As the weather gets nicer, there are more and more motorcycles on the road.

Most of the time these motorcycles are able to safely share the road with other vehicles, but occasionally a serious motorcycle accident occurs. Lately, there has been an alarming increase in the number of motorcycle accidents.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation has issued a report saying that there has been a significant increase in motorcycle crashes this year. Since January, there have been 147 fatal crashes reported across the state. Just last week, there were three fatal motorcycle crashes in Wake County alone. The state Highway Patrol is urging all drivers to be aware of their surroundings and to always drive safely.

When a motorcyclist gets into an accident, there are often serious injuries. Motorcycles do not have the same safety features as cars and drivers are thus much more at risk.

If a family has been affected by a motorcycle crash, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled at personal injury. An attorney can review the circumstances surrounding the accident and get the answers the family deserves. If the accident was the result of another person's negligence compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, lost wages and other damages.

It is important for all North Carolina drivers to be aware of their surroundings when they are driving on North Carolina roads. Now that the weather is nice out, many more motorcycles are on the roads, and drivers need to be on the lookout. Motorcycle accident victims have the legal right to hold negligent drivers responsible for their mistakes.
