The Black Hills region, and the areas around Sturgis and Sioux Falls, are among the most popular destinations in the nation for motorcycle riders. Despite popular belief, a veteran Sioux Falls motorcycle accident lawyer knows most riders ride safely and responsibly. In fact, state and national statistics show that the vast majority of motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle are the fault of the vehicle’s driver.

Common causes of South Dakota motorcycle accidents include:

  • Failure to yield: Turning left in front of an oncoming rider is the number one cause of serious and fatal motorcycle collisions.
  • Rear-end collisions: A surprising number of collisions occur when a vehicle rear-ends a rider, often at an intersection.
  • Lane crowding: Crowding riders or attempting to pass within a travel lane are common causes of serious and fatal motorcycle accidents. This is a primary reason riders often ride in groups. A motorcycle enjoys all the rights to the road as a motor vehicle, including the right to its own travel lane.
  • Intersection accidents: Motorcycles take several seconds to get underway. They also take longer to stop than a motor vehicle and may slow by downshifting, rather than activating brakes and lights. Motorcycle turn signals are also not self canceling. These factors all contribute to an outsized number of collisions at intersections.

Motorcycle Injury Claims

Your Sioux Falls motorcycle accident lawyer must determine all of the parties responsible for compensating victims for injuries. This may include a victim’s own insurance coverage through an uninsured/underinsured motorist claim, as well as an at-fault driver’s insurance carrier, the driver or owner of the at-fault vehicle, and other liable parties or insurance carriers. This is a critical step in building a comprehensive claim for damages because injuries are often severe and disabilities commonplace in the wake of a serious motorcycle accident.

Motorcycle injury claims may include:

  • Road rash
  • Broken bones
  • Crush injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Joint injuries
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Soft-tissue injuries

Your Sioux Falls motorcycle injury lawyer must pursue a comprehensive claim for both economic and non-economic damages.

  • Economic damages: Lost wages, medical bills, disability benefits, property damage, rehabilitative services and home care.
  • Non-economic damages: Pain and suffering, compensation for scarring and disfigurement, and other losses associated with an accident or the prospects of making a less than complete recovery.
