When a Driver Does Not Yield to a Motorcyclist

It’s easy for drivers to watch for cars and trucks. Keeping eyes open for motorcycle riders requires a little more care and attention, but that care and attention is necessary. Motorcycles have the same right to the road as every other motor vehicle. They need to be yielded to when they have the right of way. Unfortunately, that does not always happen. The result may be serious injuries or the wrongful death of the motorcyclist.

Rittgers & Rittgers is here to help victims of failure to yield motorcycle accidents get the compensation they need. We bring more than 30 years of experience to these cases. During that time, our Cincinnati lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in compensation, allowing people like you to cover medical bills and other costs associated with an act of negligence.

Were you hurt because someone failed to yield? You need good legal counsel.

Were you hit by a car while driving through an intersection because the driver took a left turn into your path? Did a driver take a right turn from a red light or stop sign and collide with you when you had the right of way? These are clear examples of a negligent driver failing to yield to a motorcycle rider. Unfortunately, these types of motorcycle crashes are all too common.

Our attorneys investigate all cases carefully. Frequently, when a claim involves failure to yield to a motorcycle rider who had the right of way, we find that it was a distracted driving accident. The negligent driver did not see you because he or she was sending text messages or engaged in some other distraction. Count on us to take action in these cases.
