Thousands of motorcyclists are injured and killed in accidents every year. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are preventable and usually are the result of automobile drivers failing to notice motorcycles on the road. After an accident, drivers of other vehicles involved often state that they didn’t see the motorcycle until it was too late.
Drivers have a duty to follow West Virginia laws and to respect bikers’ right to share the road. When they breach that duty of care, they should have to answer for their conduct. The attorneys at Tiano O’Dell, PLLC, represent injured bikers and their families in personal injury claims. We understand the significant challenges you may be facing after a bike accident, and we will advocate for your right to compensation.

Motorcycle Accident Liability
When a motorcycle accident occurs, many people assume that the biker was at fault. This is because there is often a stigma attached to motorcyclists as being fast and reckless drivers. However, automobile drivers are often at fault for motorcycle accidents, and as mentioned above, the reason is frequently due to drivers’ inattention to motorcycles. After an accident, bikers need an attorney who has the resources and skills necessary to refute unfair biases and prove that the defendant caused the accident.
