Southwestern States Like Utah Attract a Large Number of Motorcyclists
As part of the southwestern region of the United States, Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah offer a pleasant climate most of the year, along with beautiful surroundings, and as a result, many motorcyclists are on the roads. Motorcycles are a great transportation choice for the daily commute, or for pleasure travel. Unfortunately, along with an increase in the number of motorcycles on the road each year, comes a higher risk of motorcycle accidents.
Why Choose a Motorcycle Injury Lawyer in Utah?
Many times, accidents on your motorcycle are linked to some form of driver negligence. Examples can include excess speed, careless lane changes, or not paying attention to traffic signals or signs. Perhaps the other drive was not fully alert, or didn’t understand the potential risks and lie ahead. Even worse, alcohol or drugs may play a role in causing motorcycle crashes.
There are many other motorcycle accident causation factors that are common in big cities such as Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah including excess vehicular traffic, cloudy or foggy weather, and curvy (and sometimes dangerous) mountain roads.

Personal Injury is a frequent result of Motorcycle Accidents, and many times requires the need for medical care or even hospitalization. As a result, injured motorcyclists may have to take time off work and experience a loss of income during their recovery. A personal injury lawyer who is skilled with motorcycle injury law can help.
Property Damage may include damage to the motorcycle, other vehicles or any physical property involved in a Utah Motorcycle Crash.
Traumatic brain injury and wrongful death can result from a catastrophic Motorcycle Accident sometimes involving several vehicles, a head-on collision with an automobile, a motorcycle going off the road and down an embankment, or sometimes because the motorcyclist failed to wear the necessary protective gear. Severe injuries occur because motorcycles are not equipped with the safety features that are standard on other passenger vehicles. Without the protective metal frame, safety belts, and airbags that ensure the safety of occupants of passenger cars, motorcyclists are prone to suffering severe internal, brain, and spinal cord injuries when involved in an accident. These catastrophic injuries can end up costing thousands of dollars in medical bills that may create a financial hardship for those motorcyclists that have lost time off work and experienced a loss of income.
Defective products can sometimes be attributed to the cause of some motorcycle accidents. If the motorcycle had a defect in parts or workmanship and was not detected prior to the accident, it may be determined after investigation as a possible causation factor.
If drunk driving or drug impairment is a factor in an accident, there may be additional DUI or Criminal charges filed
