People who drive around the New Orleans area are used to looking out for cars, trucks and SUVs that are around them. However, that isn't always the case when it comes to smaller vehicles like motorcycles. Drivers simply don't see as many motorcycles on the road, and thus may not have their eyes trained to spot a motorcycle as easily as they would a larger vehicle. This kind of unawareness of motorcycles can be a deadly problem for the motorcyclist.
At the Kambur Law Firm, we have experience handling motorcycle accident cases that are a product of a driver's negligent striking of a motorcyclist. In some cases like this, the driver may claim that he or she never saw the motorcycle coming. While that may be true, it does not absolve the driver of his or her legal responsibilities toward the injured motorcyclist.
In addition,, our firm has experience uncovering evidence that an inattentive driver caused a motorcycle accident. Drivers have many distractions between their cell phones, other people in the car or trying to eat while driving. Any one of these distractions can divert the driver's eyes and concentration from the road, and it only takes a split-second of this inattention to cause an accident.
Our website has information about motorcycle accidents and the possible legal options that accident victims may have when they have suffered injuries at the hands of a negligent driver. Victims and their families may wish to look at our website for more information.Most riders in New Orleans are fully aware that motorcycles can be dangerous. But that doesn't mean that they should have to give up their expectation that other drivers will be responsible and help keep riders as safe as possible.
