With increasingly congested public roadways, motorcycle operators and their passengers are at a greater risk than ever to be involved in a serious or potentially fatal collision. More than 70,000 people are injured each year in motorcycle accidents, and several thousand of those injured persons die because of the accident. These deaths could be significantly reduced if motorcyclists and other motorists took a few basic precautions.

Passenger vehicles must leave the same amount of space for passing and following a motorcycle as they would for other vehicles of their own size. Additionally, car, truck, van and SUV drivers need to consider the motorcycle’s limitations with regards to weather and road condition. If a motorcycle is slowing down to approach a pothole or other obstacle, slow down as well and give them the space they need to drive safely. Ultimately, the safety of our public thoroughfares is up to each and every driver. All motorists have a joint responsibility to respect and not endanger the vehicles with whom they share the road.

Joel Bieber sold motorcycles at a Harley Davidson shop, to help put himself through law school.  During those three years, he learned a lot about equipment and safe driving.  Now, he couples that information with knowledge of the law, to effectively represent those who have been hit while riding a motorcycle. In addition, the Joel Bieber Firm regularly runs TV ads to encourage riders to wear helmets. In Virginia, wearing a helmet is the law. In South Carolina, the law does not require a helmet.

Handling motorcycle cases can involve specific knowledge about laws and doing specific investigations regarding the cause of the crash. In some instances, the at-fault vehicle will claim, “The motorcycle came out of nowhere.” In fact, an investigation may reveal that the driver just was not paying attention.
