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 motorcycle accidents.

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.

In order to ensure that you are not unfairly compensated or that you are not held liable for causing an accident, you need strong legal support on your side. At Shaheen & Gordon, P.A., our personal injury legal team has worked on many motorcycle and sport bike accident cases, and our lawyers have collected years of experience in developing the effective legal strategies needed to neutralize the efforts of insurance companies.

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. Our firm's New Hampshire personal injury lawyers are prepared to fight aggressively on your behalf and obtain the maximum compensation possible.
