How to prepare for the unexpected
For you—and your family.
- Make a copy of your medical insurance card and give it to your emergency contact.
- Keep your emergency contact up to date with any allergies or other relevant medical history.
- Give them the contact information of your trusted personal injury attorney.
- Consider giving power of attorney to a loved one so that decisions can be made on your behalf, if necessary.
While these four pieces of advice are a starting point, they’re just that—a starting point.
Our West Virginia motorcycle accident lawyers have put together a comprehensive Prepared Rider Kit that covers everything from assessing the value of your motorcycle to selecting the right insurance.
Getting these decisions right before an accident could be the difference in tens of thousands of dollars.
The laws you need to know
Enjoy the full freedom of the road.
Motorcycle laws and statutes are different in each state—and they’re constantly evolving. In West Virginia, these laws affect the type of eye protection motorcyclists must wear and the definition and special regulations for antique motorcycles.
As part of our service to motorcycle riders in West Virginia, we maintain up-to-date, annotated versions of state laws and statutes for West Virginia, as well as several other states where we practice.
Getting accurate information starts by choosing a trusted source, and our West Virginia motorcycle accident lawyers are immersed in these laws on a daily basis.
Staying Safe in “Wild and Wonderful” West Virginia
Enjoy the best rides while avoiding trouble spots.
The winding pathways and sharp drop-offs along U.S. Highway 33 between Harman and Seneca Rocks in Pendleton County make it one of the most dangerous sections of road in the state.
There are regular calls to enhance the safety features on that mountainous stretch. Increased reliance on GPS navigation has taken more and more truckers through this shortcut connecting Interstate 79 with Interstate 81. If you’re taking this scenic route, exercise considerable caution.
Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showed that Clay County had the highest rate of motorcycle fatalities per 100,000 in 2014 at 11.18, followed by Ritchie County (9.99) and Hampshire County (8.52).
Still, the number of fatal motorcycle accidents remains low—no county has had more than five in a single year since 2010. In West Virginia and most other states, riding safely is more about how you ride than where you ride.
