That’s the most common explanation car and truck driver’s give after a motorcycle crash. Car and truck drivers just don’t think about or understand the different dynamics of riding a motorcycle. They swerve into a motorcyclists’ lane because they weren’t looking in their rear-view mirror. They make a left turn directly in front of the motorcycle rider, not understanding that it takes a motorcyclist extra time to stop. They roll into the motorcyclist when coming to a stoplight because they just aren’t paying attention.
Unfortunately, the auto driver’s bad judgment quickly results into the motorcyclist’s bad injury like a broken leg, broken ankle, life-changing spinal cord injury, serious head injury or even death.
Injured motorcyclists and grieving families face a difficult situation.
Not only must they live with the trauma of the accident, but they often face society’s prejudice against motorcycles. That prejudice can make it more difficult to win a case at trial.

At Elkus, Sisson & Rosenstein, P.C., our attorneys work with a nationally known investigative group to ensure that we have gathered all the facts so we’re prepared to counter a jury’s preconceived ideas about motorcycles and motorcyclists.
