Motorcycle And Moped Accident Injury Claims In Honolulu

Motorcycle, moped, scooter and mobility scooter accidents in Honolulu are on the rise. According to the Hawaii Department of Transportation, there was a 6% increase in motorcycle-involved fatalities in 2022 compared to 2021, with motorcycles accounting for 29% of all traffic fatalities.

At Trecker Fritz & Williams, Attorneys at Law, we have the resources, experience and reputation needed to represent you and make the claims process in Honolulu easier. With more than 150 years of combined legal experience, our award-winning attorneys can represent you in the aftermath of a motorcycle and moped accident.

Motorcycle Accidents Are Different From Car Accidents

The most crucial difference between motorcycle and car accidents is their severity. If someone in a car hits a motorcyclist or someone on a moped, their injuries and vehicle damage are sure to be disastrous.

This is because motorcycles and mopeds are much smaller and lighter than cars. Riders also don’t have a car’s body or seatbelt to protect them from the impact. Collisions between cars, while they can be severe, are at least evenly matched.

A force of impact that would be relatively minor in a car-against-car accident could be fatal in a collision between a car and a motorcycle or moped.

Motorcycle And Moped Accidents Are More Common And More Dangerous

Factors influencing the increased frequency and danger of motorcycle and moped accidents include:

  • Reduced visibility: Motorcycles and mopeds are less visible to other drivers, increasing the risk of collisions.
  • Less protection: Riders of motorcycles and mopeds lack the protective features found in cars, such as airbags and seatbelts.
  • Traffic law violations: Drivers do not always willingly share the road with smaller vehicles, and lane-splitting can be an issue.

The most common injuries from motorcycle and moped accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Amputations
  • Neck injuries

If you suffer any of these injuries after an accident, a motorcycle accident attorney in Honolulu can help you get the compensation you deserve.
