Types of Motorcycle Accidents in West Virginia

Common types of motorcycle accidents that occur on West Virginia roadways include those involving:

  • Cars;
  • Semi-trucks;
  • Other motorcycles;
  • Drunk drivers;
  • Distracted drivers; and
  • Excessive speeding

While accidents like these occur on all types of roadways, some roadways are more hazardous than others, due to their high-speed limits, high volume of traffic, and proximity to major cities, like Baltimore, Washington D.C, Charleston, and Huntington. The faster the speed and the more crowded the roadway, the more dangerous it is for a motorcyclist.

Common West Virginia Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Common West Virginia motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Concussions;
  • Traumatic brain injuries;
  • Broken bones;
  • Soft tissue damage;
  • Disfigurement;
  • Paralysis;
  • Road rash; and
  • Burns

Generally, motorcycle accidents result in much more severe injuries because the motorcyclist does not have the same amount of protection as the driver of a passenger vehicle. As a rule of thumb, whenever a motorcycle collides with a passenger vehicle, the motorcyclist will be the one who suffers the most severe injuries.

What Compensation May I be Eligible For After a West Virginia Motorcycle Accident?

As a motorcycle accident victim, you are generally eligible to collect compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical bills;
  • Lost income;
  • The cost to repair or replace your bike;
  • Pain and suffering; and
  • More

However, you should know the insurance adjuster handling your claim will not have your best interest in mind. Although he or she may seem trustworthy and kind, they are employed by the insurance company to identify ways to pay you less than the amount you deserve for your motorcycle accident claim.

To do this, they will often employ tactics, such as trying to convince you to accept a settlement only days after the motorcycle accident, or denying you money that you know you are entitled to receive. The adjuster also knows that there is a general public bias against motorcyclists that can be exploited to limit or deny your claim by placing some or all of the blame on you.

This is why you must hire an attorney who handles motorcycle accident cases on a fairly regular basis. One who knows how to thwart the insurance adjuster’s tactics.
