Do You Need a Virginia Motorcycle Accident Law Firm?

Motorcycle Accident Law Firm VirginiaAlthough there are many laws to protect motorcycle riders in Virginia, you may be in need of a good motorcycle accident law firm Virginia motorcycle riders and their families can rely on.

Motorcycle Accident Information

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published the following information and statistics that indicate a nationwide need for law firms that know how to defend motorcycle accident victims and their families. In 2015:

  • 4,976 motorcyclists were killed
  • There was an 8% increase in the number of motorcyclists killed from the year 2014 to
    the year 2015
  • 88,000 motorcyclists were injured
  • Per vehicle mile travelled, motorcycle fatalities occurred nearly 29 times more
    frequently than passenger car occupant fatalities in traffic crashes
  • In States without universal helmet laws, 58% of motorcyclists killed were not wearing
    helmets, as compared to 8% in States with universal helmet laws

Virginia requires all motorcycle operators and their passengers to wear helmets at all times. Even with this important protective gear, motorcycle riders are often injured. These injuries can be anywhere from minor to catastrophic, to even deadly. If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident involving a motorcycle, even if you were not riding the motorcycle involved, it may be in your best interest to get a motorcycle accident law firm in Virginia, or in the jurisdiction where your accident occured, on your side.

Virginia Motorcycle Safety Laws

Like all U.S. States, Virginia has laws to regulate motorcycles and their riders, to help to try to make Virginia roads safer for all vehicles and their travelers. Some of the laws that pertain to motorcycles include:

  • All motorcycle operators and riders must wear helmets
  • It is recommended but not required that a headlight be on during the day
  • Motorcycle riders can use a microphone with one ear piece to communicate with
    passengers and other cyclists. It is illegal for a motorcycle operator to have both ears covered.
  • All riders must wear goggles, safety glasses, or a helmet shield. If the motorcycle has a
    windshield, the aforementioned are not required.
  • Passengers must have a passenger seat and footrest
  • Motorcycle operators must hold a motorcycle operator’s license

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
