Virginia Motorcycle Laws
Motorcycle laws and statutes are different in each state—and they’re constantly evolving. In Virginia, these laws affect everything from the use of unapproved motorcycle accessories to motorcyclists’ rights to use the HOV lane—a right we fought for in Virginia.
As part of our service to motorcycle riders in Virginia, we maintain up-to-date, annotated versions of state laws and statutes for Virginia, as well as several other states where we practice.
Getting accurate information starts by choosing a trusted source, and our Virginia motorcycle accident lawyers are immersed in these laws on a daily basis.
Motorcycle Safety in Virginia
We all take safety seriously. Knowing which factors affect motorcycle safety in Virginia can help ensure that you enjoy the ride, whether that’s in the foothills of the Appalachians or along the coast in Virginia Beach.
The sad fact is that most motor vehicle accidents are preventable. This is true for motorcycle accidents as well. Of the 92 Virginia motorcycle related fatalities in 2020, 16.3% involved distracted driving as a contributing factor. Alcohol impairment was a contributing factor in 35.8% of all motorcycle related fatalities in 2020, and speed was a contributing factor in 57.6%. Some motorcycle related fatalities involved a combination of one or more of the above contributing factors.
According to data from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), motorcycle accident fatality risks were highest among those aged 21-35 in 2020. Those riders accounted for 39.1 % of all motorcycle related injuries and 57.6% of all motorcycle related fatalities. This is a change from recent past years when riders in the 45-60 age group made up the greatest portion of those involved in motorcycle related fatalities.
We are Advocates for Motorcyclists in Virginia.
We work tirelessly to ensure that your right to ride is protected in Virginia. We have taken multiple cases before Virginia courts, including a successful effort to allow motorcyclists to use HOV lanes.
Virginia Personal Injury Attorneys
In addition to representing injured riders, our team of personal injury lawyers in the Richmond and Newport News areas also represent Virginia residents in a variety of other ways, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Medical malpractice cases
- Drunk driving accident injuries
Instead of taking all types of cases, our personal injury lawyers have dedicated themselves to focusing on these specific subject matters, allowing us to develop a deeper set of knowledge and experience than you may find at other jack-of-all-trade law firms.
For example, we work with some of the most experienced accident reconstruction experts in the business, and our attorneys excel at the analysis of auto accidents and communicating the physics of an accident to jurors during trials.
Our familiarity with catastrophic motorcycle accident, truck accident and drunk driving accident injuries has also built up our experience in medical testimony. When it comes to understanding complex medical issues and explaining the repercussions of injuries to a jury, few law firms can boast our depth of understanding.
Car and Truck Accident Cases in Virginia
The same skills that make the Motorcycle Law Group effective motorcycle accident lawyers seamlessly translate into representing car, SUV and truck drivers in auto accident cases. The laws governing auto accidents of all types are essentially the same when it comes to crash cases and proving negligence.
We understand the road, how to investigate accidents, and work with accident reconstruction experts to build a compelling case, regardless of the type of vehicle involved in your accident.
Commercial Truck Accident Lawyers in Virginia
Big rig trucks outweigh the average commuter vehicle more than 10 times over, which is why accidents involving tractor-trailers and passenger cars or motorcyclists so often result in catastrophic injuries and death.
There are, unfortunately, a lot of factors that can lead to commercial trucking accidents.
Part of the risk has to do with the sheer size of the vehicle and the constant vigilance truckers need to maintain, but another risk are the long hours and fatigue that often impacts a driver’s performance.
If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident with a commercial truck, the Motorcycle Law Group is ready to fight for you.
Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Virginia
Some of the toughest personal injury cases are those involving medical malpractice, including surgical errors and childbirth mistakes.
Health care mistakes happen all the time. According to a study from John Hopkins University, nearly 250,000 deaths in the country each year could be due to a medical error of some kind. If that estimate is accurate, medical errors could easily be the third leading cause of death in the United States.
We’d all like to think the medical professionals caring for us are the best, and that their years of additional education, fellowships, and residencies have prepared them to handle every potential health care situation they may encounter.
What we sometimes forget is that doctors are human and are just as susceptible to mistakes as any other professional.
That’s why they carry massive medical malpractice insurance policies to protect them from lawsuits. The potential for large sums of compensation for medical malpractice injury victims also means the insurance companies aggressively fight medical malpractice claims.
If you’ve suffered a serious injury or complication due to a doctor’s error, or you’ve lost a loved one because of a medical mistake, you should expect to face tough resistance.
The Motorcycle Law Group is accustomed to tough cases, and we’re committed to fighting for the compensation our clients deserve. We’re not intimidated by the deep pockets of medical malpractice insurance companies, and we’re ready to put in the time and effort to build a strong, compelling case for your family.
