According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 4,800 motorcyclists were killed in 2006 alone. Over the last decade, this figure has risen steadily. In the state of Iowa, the great majority of those deaths involved a driver who was not wearing a helmet, and almost a quarter of them involved alcohol.
Given the size and speed of the vehicles often involved in these accidents, the collision can result in devastating injuries or even death. As you and your family face the outcome of a motorcycle accident, turn to a firm that you can trust to carry the legal load and fight to ensure that you are provided the benefits you need to cover your medical treatment.
