Sport Bike Accidents
New Hampshire & Maine Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Sport bikes or motocross are high performance motorcycles that are known
for their high speeds and quick acceleration. Sport bikes are also the
most common model involved in
What makes sport bikes so appealing to motorcycle riders also make them
more dangerous. As consumer versions of racing bikes, super-sports, sport
motorcycles, unclad sport bikes, and sport-touring bikes are typically
lighter and more powerful than other bikes.
While the risk of riders suffering injuries in accidents is already incredibly
high, sport bikes often intensify these risks and make riders prone to
more severe and
catastrophic injuries. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highways Safety (IIHS) reports that
sport bike accidents are five times more likely to result in fatalities
than any other type of motorcycle accident.
Sport Bikes and Personal Injury Claims
Sport bike riders and motocross riders have earned a negative stereotype.
Riders are often perceived as risk takers who practice unsafe driving
behaviors, including unsafe speeds, lane splitting and unsafe lane changing.
As a result, they are more susceptible to accusations of fault and liability
during accidents. During the
personal injury claim process, insurance companies will fight sport bike riders aggressively.
In order to shift blame away from their drivers and policy holders, insurance
corporations frequently highlight these associations and negative stereotypes
and aim to pay victims as little as possible.

Protect Your Right to Compensation
One of the largest mistakes an injured motorcycle rider can make is to
believe that they will be automatically and fairly compensated for their
damages. Insurance companies are businesses that aim to preserve their
financial assets, not to ensure that injured victims receive the care
they need and deserve. They are not in the business to be fair to you.

aggressively on your behalf and obtain the maximum compensation possible.
