Motorcycle Accidents in Delaware

Riding a motorcycle on the open road is a thrill that draws many enthusiasts. Many motorcyclists will go a lifetime without any incident, but most motorcycle crashes are catastrophic events that cause serious injuries or end in fatalities. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that a motorcycle rider is 26 times more likely to suffer fatalities in a motorcycle accident than passenger car occupants.

Injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident can range from broken limbs to serious trauma including:

  • Head and neck injuries, such as concussions and traumatic brain injury

  • Back injuries, including herniated discs

  • Broken bones, including severe injuries to the feet and ankles

  • Fractured or sprained wrists and hands

  • Severe road rash

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Wrongful death

The effects of these injuries can be felt long after the healing period as there may be long-term damage to nerves, muscles, or tendons that cause pain. Catastrophic accidents may even result in disfigurement or dismemberment.

Motorcycles are more susceptible to accidents as they are smaller and therefore harder for other drivers to see. They have fewer safety features such as seatbelts, therefore in the event of an accident, the driver is almost always thrown from the vehicle. Moreover, motorcycle riders are affected more by poor road conditions such as uneven surfaces at lane changes, gravel, potholes and wet surfaces.


Motorcycle accident statistics show that riders who do not wear helmets are three times more likely to be fatally injured than those wearing a DOT approved helmet at the time of the crash. If you were in a motorcycle accident in Delaware and were not wearing a helmet, it is still possible to recover damages if the accident was caused by a negligent driver. If any of your injuries were attributed to the fact that you failed to wear a helmet, your award may be reduced.

Know Your Rights

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident you can greatly benefit from having a Delaware motorcycle accident lawyer represent you. At Rhoades & Morrow, we will collect evidence on your behalf, question witnesses, research the driving record of the other driver(s) in the accident, and review police reports and medical records as well as consult medical experts about your injuries and recovery.

All of this is done to recover for you all entitled compensation, including lost wages and lost future wages if necessary, medical expenses for past, present and future, and pain and suffering and/or mental anguish. Injuries from Delaware motorcycle accidents are not covered by personal injury protection (PIP) insurance policies.

Steps to Take Following a Motorcycle Accident

It is best to follow these steps when involved in a motorcycle accident:

  • If you cannot contact a Delaware motorcycle accident attorney immediately following an accident, never sign any forms from an insurer or admit fault in any way to protect your rights.

  • Photograph any evidence, your injuries, and the damage to your motorcycle and retrieve personal contact information of any witnesses.

  • Write down your own account of what happened and exchange information with any drivers involved in the accident.

  • Keep copies of all documents related to the motorcycle crash including medical bills and expenses.
