Virginia Beach is home to beautiful and scenic roadways, roadways that are even more breathtaking when viewed from the seat of a motorcycle with the wind rushing through your hair. Indeed, motorcycling in this part of the country is addictive, but like many addictive activities, motorcycling comes with its share of dangers.
It is because of these dangers that motorcyclists are arguably some of the safest drivers on the road. Nevertheless, it does not always matter how safe a motorcyclist is, if the other vehicles he or she shares the road with are driving in a reckless, negligent or unlawful fashion, it could be a recipe for catastrophic and fatal injuries if an accident results.
Motorcyclists are obviously at a disadvantage on the road, and in many ways, their safety skills and the proactive way they educate themselves on new safety strategies helps them avoid a lot of accidents. Nevertheless, if an accident does happen and the motorcyclist is seriously hurt or killed, the inured biker or the biker’s family members may wish to investigate the strength and viability of pursuing a civil lawsuit for justice and restitution. Indeed, by holding negligent and irresponsible drivers responsible for the accidents they cause, it helps to make the roadways of Virginia Beach safer — one lawsuit at a time.
At the Dickerson & Smith Law Group, we help individuals pursue claims for justice relating to personal injuries and wrongful death stemming from the negligent and/or unlawful behavior of others. We also take great pride in the work we have done to protect the legal rights of motorcyclists. We want bikers to be able to enjoy their hobby on roadways free of unlawful drivers, and we will do what it takes to advocate on their behalf in this regard.
