Gastonia is the biggest city in the county with close to 75,000 inhabitants, and drivers can be aggressive or distracted in the city's traffic. Some of the area's major motorcycle accidents happen on Hwy 321 and I-85 South, where the on and off ramps can be dangerous. Drivers do not always follow the rules of the road or keep their eyes out for bikers in this area. The NCDOT reports that the majority of fatal motorcycle crashes in Gastonia happen along these major roadways rather than on North Carolina’s more rural roads, but an accident can happen anywhere and at any time. When they do, turn to an attorney who’s a rider like you – attorney Bob Karney.
A motorcycle accident can cost a person a lot more than the freedom to ride. From broken bones to serious head injuries, bikers often suffer mounting medical expenses, surgery costs, physical therapy bills, time off work, and the costs to repair or replace their motorcycles. Insurance companies are eager to blame bikers, even though statistics show that most motorcycle crashes are the fault of motor vehicle drivers. Motorcyclists are also more than 30 times likely to be killed in a crash than those who have the protection of a car in an accident. But insurance companies do whatever it takes to get out of paying biker's accident claims.
An active biker himself, Bob Karney looks out for his fellow bikers and wants them to get the compensation they are entitled to when unfortunate accidents occur. Whether you’ve been involved in a minor crash or a catastrophic collision, you don’t need to take on the headache of trying to to fight the insurance companies alone.
