Almost every year the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally sees an increase in motorcycle accidents around the first week of August, when thousands of motorcyclists visit Sturgis, North Dakota for the rally. Fortunately, most of these accidents don’t result in wrongful death, but many of them do result in serious injuries.
Many of the motorcyclists come from Ohio, and many more travel through Ohio on their way to the rally. Drivers and riders both should be exercising increased caution during the end of July and the beginning of August when more motorcyclists are on the road. Most motorcyclists, aware of their increased risk in comparison to a driver in a car or truck, drive more carefully. In many cases, the motorcyclist is not at fault, other drivers citing their failure to see the motorcyclist or poor driving conditions as the cause for the accident. In these instances, you may have the right to financial compensation for your injuries.
In accidents where permanent debilitating injury or death the death of a loved one results from a motorcycle accident, you should contact legal representation immediately to find out your rights. Don’t let a painful accident or loss of a loved one debilitate you financially for life.
