Trucks must use extreme caution around motorcycles, due to the unprotected nature of the smaller vehicles. Motorcyclists are as unprotected as pedestrians and cyclists, but accidents can be even more dangerous due to the speed at which the motorcycle may be traveling. A motorcyclist rarely survives a crash with a tractor-trailer. We have handled many cases involving motorcycles. You can look at our past case results by clicking here.
