Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Cranston

Sound Representation for Injured Victims & Their Loved Ones in Rhode Island

Motorcycle accidents are almost always serious and it is imperative that you hire an experienced Cranston motorcycle accident attorney. In fact, approximately 3,000 motorcyclists are killed each year across the country. There are numerous factors that contribute to the high rate of motorcycle accidents. First and foremost, drivers of cars are unaccustomed to looking for motorcycles or bicyclists. Often while looking for other vehicles to avoid, a driver's eye can miss a motorcycle. Unfortunately, a relatively minor car accident can result in a fatal motorcycle accident.

If you were injured or your loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident, it’s possible that negligence played a role. At The Law Office of Joseph Lamy, our Cranston motorcycle accident attorney is happy to sit down with you and discuss the specifics of your case. In addition to English, we can assist you in Spanish or Portuguese and our attorney even gives out his personal cell phone number so that sound legal guidance is always just a phone call away.

Reach out to our firm today at (401) 244-7433 to get started with a free, initial consultation.

Motorcycle Accident Information

The Department of Transportation commissioned a study of causal factors in motorcycle accidents. Among the findings:

  • In multiple vehicle accidents, the driver of the vehicle violated the motorcycle right-of-way and caused the accident in 2/3 of these accidents;
  • The failure of motor vehicle drivers to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic is the primary cause of motorcycle accidents;
  • The typical motorcycle accidents allows the motorcycle rider two seconds of reaction time to take evasive action;
  • The view of the motorcycle, or other vehicles, is limited by glare or another object in almost half of all motorcycle accidents.

In addition, the study highlighted the potential for injury:

  • The likelihood of injury for a motorcycle rider in an accident with a single vehicle is 96% and 45% resulted in serious injury;
  • The most severe injuries occur to the chest and head;
  • Fuel system leaks and spills were present in 62% of motorcycle accidents presenting an increased risk of fire and burns.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident you may be entitled to damages, including current and future medical bills, lost wages, future loss of earning capacity, damages for scarring or road rash, damages for permanent injuries, pain, and suffering.

Rhode Island Statute of Limitations

According to Rhode Island General Laws § 9-1-14, accident claims must be either settled with the insurance or a lawsuit filed against the at-fault driver within three years of the date of the accident. Insurance companies are not required to nor do they have any incentive to settle your claim quickly, so it's up to you to make sure your claim is handled before the three-year statute has expired. If you miss this deadline by a single day, you are no longer eligible to receive compensation.

Do whatever you need to do to meet the deadline so you don't miss out on compensation. Set reminders in your phone, mark the date on a calendar, put a note on your fridge, and hire an attorney.
