Local-Attorneys Responds to Alarming Increase in Motorcycle Accidents
Baltimore, MD, April 2, 2007 -- The number of motorcycle accidents in the U.S. in 2006 was more than double the number of accidents from just ten years prior (1996). This trend has prompted Local-Attorneys.com to add a category - http://www.local-attorneys.com/cat/injury/motorcycle/ - where accident victims can find legal help that is experienced in handling the complex circumstances of motorcycle accidents.
According to data gathered by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, the number of registered motorcycles has increased 73% in the past ten years, whereas the number of fatalities has increased 123%.
In place of “interruption marketing,” many trusted law firms are now joining online law firm directories so they can be found by customers specifically seeking legal services.
“Our service is simply a way to locate one or a handful of law firms that you could potentially contact. From that point, it’s up to each consumer to do your due diligence in checking credentials, experience, fees and of course making sure you are comfortable with any firm that you decide to retain,” says Local-Attorneys.com creator, Jon Payne. “Finding a law firm on our website is merely the first step.”
Being injured in a motorcycle accident can be a traumatic experience. Legal implications rightfully take a backseat to medical concerns, but often the two may be intertwined. Baltimore-based personal injury law firm Ingerman & Horwitz, LLP offers several tips on its website - http://www.ihlaw.com/areas/auto-accident/motorcycle/ - about what to do if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident:
- Get the other driver’s name, phone number, address, insurance info, and license number.
- Take contact information from any witnesses to the accident.
- Take pictures of the accident scene with a digital camera.
- Don’t flee the accident scene. Stay and wait for the police.
- Provide factual information but don’t make definitive statements that take responsibility for the accident.
- If you need medical attention, see a doctor as soon as possible and keep records of the visits.
