Motorcycle Accidents

RI Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Crashes with motorcycles are not rare events – particularly among some beginning riders. Did you know that one out of every five motorcycle crashes are shown to result in head or neck injuries?

Negligent drivers cause skilled motorcyclist to crash causing head trauma to the biker. You need the legal help provided by experienced Rhode Island Motorcycle Accident Lawyer S. Joshua Macktaz to determine who is liable for the motorbike crash!

Some crash analysis of motorcycle accidents show that head and neck injuries account for a great majority of fatalities to motorcyclists. Research with motorcycles also shows that, with few exceptions, the proper wearing of an approved head helmet reduces head and neck injuries.

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by:
  • Drunk driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Poor road conditions
  • Traffic congestion
  • Disregard of driving laws right of way
  • Motorcycle signaling error
  • Auto car driver negligence

Local Rhode Island Motorcycle Injury Lawyer Macktaz will examine your rights and determine the liability. Some riders do not wear helmets because they think helmets will limit their view to the sides. Others wear helmets only on long trips or when riding at high speeds. An approved helmet lets you see as far to the sides as necessary. A study of more than 900 motorcycle crashes, where 40% of the riders wore helmets, did not find even one case in which a helmet kept a rider from spotting danger.

Most crashes happen on short trips (less than five miles long), just a few minutes after starting out. Most riders are riding slower than 30 mph when a crash occurs. At these speeds, helmets can cut both the number and the severity of head injuries by half. No matter what the speed, helmeted riders are three times more likely to survive head injuries than those not wearing helmets at the time of the crash. Almost every single motorcycle injury accident ends up in injury so the damages experienced can be extensive.

If you or someone you love has been involved in a motorcycle accident you need the experience and knowledge of S. Joshua Macktaz, Rhode Island Motorcycle Accident Lawyer to investigate your case to the fullest.

  • Speeding
  • Inexperienced motorcyclists
  • DUI
  • Obstacles in the road that can cause loss of control
  • Drivers not noticing motorcyclists and turning in their lane

I highly recommend the services of Josh Macktaz. He was responsive, efficient and very realistic about my case and the associated penalties. My legal costs were exactly as he suggested on our first call (which were fair). He is very knowledgeable of the Rhode Island law and has very strong contacts at the traffic tribunal. Related, he handled minor hearings without me which saved me money and travel time. He did the best possible job for a guy in my situation. Anyone that has a drunk driving charge in RI that does not consider Josh Macktaz is risking their future and wasting their dollars.

My experience with Josh was beyond positive. If I could rate higher than five stars I would. Through out my entire process he was professional, straightforward, knowledgeable and understanding. It did not take long after meeting him I knew I needed him to represent me. Although my road was long Josh stuck with me every step of the way. There is no doubt in my mind without him I would not have been able to get the best possible outcome in my case. For that my family and I are forever grateful to him. He truly is a master of his craft and a fighter through and through. If you need representation look no further " This is the Man you want In your corner."
