Our attorneys understand that witnesses tend to be biased when describing a driver’s actions. Witnesses are not good estimators of the speed and distance of a motorcycle. Moreover, many witnesses also simply do not like motorcycles, and this affects their view of who is at fault.

Police officers investigating an accident often exhibit bias against motorcycle riders. After an officer has recorded his opinions in a report, it is difficult to change that opinion. Police reports are usually the first resource used by accident reconstructionists.

Road rash, skin grafting, and severe burns, even while wearing road leather, cause longer recovery times and increase the likelihood of infection.
