Virginia Motorcycle Laws

As a rider, it is important you follow the rules around motorcycle use to keep yourself out of level trouble. These laws must be followed if you want to best preserve your chances of getting full compensation after a bike accident or incident. If you’re found to have been breaking laws and the rules of the road, you could be found liable for your damages — which defeats your chances of getting any compensation.

Two important motorcycle laws in Virginia include:

  • Lane-splitting: This is when you ride a motorcycle in between two lanes of traffic. Lane-splitting is illegal in Virginia and you’ll be penalized with a ticket or citation. If you were hit by a car or are injured while lane-splitting, it will make your ability to receive any compensation difficult or impossible.
  • Helmets: Regardless of your age, experience or opinion on them, motorcyclists in Virginia must wear a motorcycle helmet at all times while the bike is in operation. If you get a head injury or are otherwise injured were not wearing a helmet, you may be liable for any damages related to your case.

Know the motorcycle laws of Virginia! The Commonwealth uses a pure contributory negligence rule, which requires you to be 0% at fault for your crash to retain the right to sue the other party for compensation. Even if you are 1% at fault or liable, your case will end.

As part of our service to motorcycle riders in Virginia, we maintain up-to-date, annotated versions of state laws and statutes for Virginia, plus other states where we practice. Getting accurate information starts by choosing a trusted source, and our local motorcycle accident lawyers are immersed in these laws on a daily basis. From our offices in Newport News, we serve motorcycle accident victims and their families from Williamsburg, Yorktown, Poquoson, Hampton, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Suffolk, and surrounding counties.

Hampton Roads Motorcycle Representation — In and Out of Court

Motorcycle accident cases can end in your favor through a settlement or an award. Our legal team has the experience required to steer your case toward success. Whether settlement or jury award, our goal is to help you get compensated for your injuries or losses. Being fully compensated is The Firm That Rides® goal in every case.

  • Settlement: A settlement is agreed upon in a conference room setting between yourself, the opposing party or parties, and attorneys representing both sides. Many motorcycle accident claims that are backed by legitimate, concrete evidence end in a settlement. The insurance company does not want to go to trial and pay more in court and attorney fees. If it seems like you have a strong chance of winning, we will prepare to negotiate for a settlement.
  • Award: An award can be issued to you after your case goes to court before a judge and/or jury. Insurance companies do not like to go to court, but they are not completely opposed to the idea. If the insurer thinks you do not have a strong case, then it will try to scare you off entirely by refusing to settle and forcing you to litigate. The Firm That Rides® is also the firm that litigates with confidence and tenacity.
