Motorcycle Accidents are a Growing Problem in Bristol, RI

Motorcycles are a popular mode of transportation for Bristol residents, and on any given day locals can be seen driving their motorcycles along Hope Street. Unfortunately, the popularity of motorcycles coupled with the congested Bristol roads means that accidents occur frequently. Local and state authorities alike have voiced concern over the recent increase in motorcycle accidents in Rhode Island. According to the Rhode Island Department of Transportation’s Office of Highway Safety (RIDOT), just last year, there was double the number of motorcycle crashes that resulted in death than the previous year. Bristol Motorcycle Accident Lawyer David Tapalian has also seen a stark increase in motorcycle victims recently.

You may have heard of the recent motorcycle accident at the intersection of Fox Hill and Mount Hope Avenue, where an SUV hit a motorcyclist head on. The motorcyclist suffered a serious head injury and was in critical condition. The motorcyclist also was not wearing a helmet, making his injuries even more severe. This rider was lucky to still be with us, but many motorcyclists are not so lucky. Due to Rhode Island Legislation that only requires newly licensed motorcyclists and those under 21 to wear helmets, often seasoned riders forgo using a helmet. However, even the most experienced of riders can be involved in accidents, and it is imperative that riders consider the safety repercussions of riding without a helmet.

The rider in the Mount Hope Avenue motorcycle accident suffered horrific injuries, while the car operator that hit him did not even require hospitalization. The driver, who claims that he “didn’t see the motorcycle”, did not execute the duty of care that he owed the motorcycle rider and everyone on the road. Bristol Motorcycle Accident Lawyer David Tapalian has found that many motorcyclists become frustrated by the lack of respect that regular cars give them when sharing the road. It is not uncommon for a car to run a rider off the street, and many motorcycle accidents are caused by third parties. However, legally, motorcycles are considered vehicles with the same rights as other cars. If you were involved in a motorcycle accident in Bristol, your case will be handled with the same legal proceeding as any car accident claim and deserves the same level of importance as any other motor vehicle accident. After serving the Bristol community for over 20 years, David Tapalian will do whatever it takes to hold the other party responsible for their actions.
