In 2011, Rhode Island had fifteen (15) fatalities from motorcycle accidents according to the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration. However, as deaths from car accidents are decreasing, the number of deaths from motorcycle accidents is increasing. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), the rate of motorcycle deaths increased 55% from 2001 to 2008. Non-fatal injury rates also increased. Sadly, young adults, ages 20 -29 years old, have the highest rates of motorcycle deaths and injuries.
Motorcycle accidents can be especially devastating because of the size of the other vehicles involved and the lack of protection for the motorcyclist. At the Law Offices of Robert H. Humphrey, I handle clients' motorcycle accidents and help them obtain the financial compensation they deserve. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, my firm can help you file a claim and pursue a lawsuit against the responsible party. I understand that this situation can have a serious impact on your family, especially when the accident resulted in a wrongful death.
