Statistics estimate that more than 90,000 motorcyclists will be injured in a collision each year. The Lafayette motorcycle accident attorneys at our firm can represent victims who need to get their lives back on track. Although motorcyclists have the same rights as other motorists, all too often drivers refuse to share the road with motorcyclists and cause serious injury or even death. External factors such as inadequate roads and motorcycle defects can also cause a motorcycle accident. Tragically, a motorcycle accident can result in a life-changing injury.

Over seven million people driver motorcycles in the United States. However, by their very nature, motorcycles tend to be more dangerous than passenger vehicles. In fact, government statistics reveal that a motorcycle is 35 times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident on the road than a passenger vehicle.
By law, drivers are required to share the road with motorcyclists. Motorcyclists are more vulnerable than drivers in passenger vehicles because they do not have the added protection of the surrounding vehicle. Although the most common motorcycle accident injury is a brain injury, a helmet does not always ensure a motorcyclist’s safety. All too often, motorcycle accidents lead to devastating injuries and tragic loss.
Broussard & David has years of experience representing motorcyclists who are seriously injured in motorcycle accidents and the families of motorcyclists who are tragically killed in motorcycle accidents. Our Lafayette motorcycle accident lawyers are dedicated to obtaining justice for victims of motorcycle accidents and their loved ones.
