Indiana motorcycle accidents: Biker injured by wrong-way driver

Riding a motorcycle is a wonderful experience for experienced bikers, as there is something about the wind blowing in one's face as one takes in the beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents occur more often than many would like to admit and can often result in very serious or fatal injuries. A 20-year-old man here in Indiana was recently rushed to the hospital after being struck by a car while riding his motorcycle.

Sometimes when accidents occur in Indiana and elsewhere, it may be difficult to determine who was at fault. Most of the time, when a vehicle strikes another vehicle in the rear, the driver of the vehicle who struck the other is the one deemed to be at fault. However, with motorcycle accidents, this may not be the case, as motorcycles are inherently harder to see, and the driver of a passenger vehicle may not be aware of the presence of a motorcycle until it is too late. 

Motorcycle helmets, crashes and the question of liability

When most people get into a vehicle, the first thing they do is buckle their seat belt. That's because it's not only the law in many states, including here in Indiana, most people are aware of the fact that seat belts greatly reduce a person's risk of suffering a fatal injury in a crash. That's why, for a lot of people, wearing a seat belt is a no brainer.

Can a city or county be responsible for a motorcycle accident?

As many people know, not all motorcycle accidents involve other vehicles. Sometimes, accidents happen because of potholes in the road, debris left in the street or other conditions that make the road itself hazardous. So, what happens if you are injured because of poor road conditions? Do you have any options for recourse?

Motorcycles and vehicle-to-vehicle communication

It's January here in Lawrenceburg, which means frigid temperatures and falling snow. Not exactly the most ideal conditions for motorcyclists in our state, which is why during the winter months you tend not to see this type of motor vehicle on our streets and highways.

A New Year and new restrictions for scooter drivers in Indiana

In Indiana, we have few laws that govern the use of low-speed scooters on our state's roadways. With a typical maximum speed of 35 mph, there didn't seem to be a need for strict regulations such as license plate or driver's license requirements.
