Phoenix MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
CLAIMING A MOTORCYCLE PERSONAL INJURY
Motorcycle accidents happen frequently due to the vulnerability of motorcycles themselves. Motorcycle riders are at greater risk because of their comparatively smaller size and the limited visibility of motorcycles in general.
75% of motorcycle accidents involve a passenger, whereas the other 25% involve a single rider. 60% of motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle, which is oftentimes a car. As a victim of these types of accidents, it is crucial for you to secure your rights and call our motorcycle accident lawyers today.
Motorcycle accidents occur far too frequently in Arizona. According to data from the Arizona Department of Transportation, there were 3,115 motorcycle crashes reported within the state in 2016. Many of those crashes occurred in the Phoenix metro area. When motorcycle collisions do happen, the consequences can be devastating. While motorcycles were involved in less than two percent of all highway accidents on Arizona, motorcycles were involved more than ten percent of all fatal accidents in the state. At Cluff Injury Lawyers, our Phoenix motorcycle accident attorneys understand the unique challenges that bikers face. We help motorcycle accident victims recover the full compensation that they deserve.

How to Prove Liability in Arizona
Motorcycle accident injury claims are generally brought under the appropriate state law. In Arizona, these claims must be brought under the state’s pure comparative fault legal standard (A.R.S. § 12-2505). In order to hold another party legally responsible for your motorcycle crash, you and your Phoenix motorcycle accident lawyer will be required to prove that the accident occurred because of their negligence. While bike manufacturers and other parties can be held liable for accidents, most motorcycle accident injury claims are brought against another driver. Unfortunately, inattentive and careless drivers too often cause accidents with motorcycles. Some of the most notable examples of driver negligence include:
- Running a red light;
- Failure to yield;
- Unsafe lane change;
- Distracted driving, including texting; and
- Intoxicated driving, including drunk and drugged driving.
Injured Motorcyclists Deserve Fair Compensation
If you can prove that another party is legally liable for your accident, then your claim will move forward to the issue of damages. Under Arizona law, injured motorcyclists have a right to recover compensation equal to the value of their losses. Sadly, in practice, a full and fair financial recovery can be difficult to achieve. Insurance companies put a lot of resources into the effort of limiting the value of personal injury settlements. Our Phoenix motorcycle crash lawyers can help. We will fight to get you every dollar you rightfully deserve. You may be able to recover for:
- Emergency medical costs;
- Hospital bills;
- Medical equipment;
- Long-term care;
- Lost current and future wages;
- Pain and suffering;

- Disfigurement; and
- The wrongful death of a family member.
