Queen Creek Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Queen Creek has many rural type roads, such as Hunt Highway. Rural roads have also attracted motorcycle riders due to their scenic views and limited traffic. However, as Queen Creek continues to grow, more drivers will drive on the rural roads.

Road construction is going on everywhere in Queen Creek. This unfortunately will mean more motorcycle accidents in Queen Creek. The cause of most motorcycle accidents is negligence.

What are the Most Dangerous Intersections in Queen Creek, Arizona?

According to the state of Arizona, the most dangerous intersections in Queen Creek are: 

  • East Rittenhouse Road and East Ocotillo Road
  • Ellsworth and Queen Creek Road
  • South Ellsworth Loop Road and East Rittenhouse Road
  • East Empire Boulevard and South Ellsworth Road
  • East Chandler Heights Road and South Ellsworth Road
  • South Ellsworth Road and East Rittenhouse Road
  • West Combs Road and North Gary Road
  • South Signal Butte Road and East Ocotillo Road
  • South Ellsworth Road and East San Tan Boulevard
  • East Cloud Road and East Rittenhouse Road
  • South Ellsworth Loop Road and East Maya Road
  • South Ellsworth Road and East Cloud Road

Make sure that if you’re driving a motorcycle, that you are extra cautious at these intersections. I’ve also found that driving on Hunt Highway at night can be treacherous. I wouldn’t recommend driving a motorcycle at night on Hunt Highway, if you can avoid it. If you’ve been injured at one of these intersections, the city of Queen Creek may be responsible for unsafe road design or failure to properly maintain a roadway.  

How Do Most Motorcycle Accidents Happen?

Most car accidents in Queen Creek happen due to someone else’s negligence. This can include:

  • Drivers making unsafe turns or lane changes
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Drivers failing to check their blind spots before changing lanes
  • Drivers using their cellphones
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Drivers making left hand turns in front of motorcycle drivers
  • Potholes or cracks in the road
  • Hit and Run accidents

Motorcycle accidents can be particularly devastating as the motorcyclist may be forced off the road, or be forced to lay the bike down. The injuries from having direct contact with the road or vehicles can cause catastrophic injuries.  

What Should I Do if I’ve Been in a Motorcycle Accident

The first thing that you should do is call 911 and ask for medical help for anyone that has been injured.  Be polite and honest with the police, but don’t admit any fault. Please do not speak with any other party’s insurance company. They often will ask for what is known as a ‘recorded statement’ that they will then use against you.  

Make sure that you’re getting medical treatment as soon as possible. The most important aspect about any accident is ensuring that you get better.  

After everyone has had a chance to receive medical treatment, please call a Queen Creek car accident attorney at Justice On Demand at (480) 934-0676 for a free consultation. We will help guide you through the entire process.  

What if my Medical Bills are More Than the Other Driver’s Insurance Coverage?

The Arizona state minimum for bodily injury coverage is $25,000 per person or $50,000 per occurrence, whichever is less. Most Arizona drivers have this minimum coverage. That means that if you’ve been injured by another driver, and they have the state minimum coverage, the most that you could receive from their insurance is $25,000 for your personal injury case.  

What if you have medical bills of $50,000? Will you end up owing money even if you weren’t at fault?  This is where you’ll need an experienced and dedicated attorney to help you. We always work to get substantial reductions on your medical bills for you. We’ve never had a client that ended up owing money after their accident. But the road to making sure that everything is taken care of can be tricky.  

How Do I Protect Myself as a Motorcycle Driver?

The best way to protect yourself from drivers with either no insurance, or very little insurance is to make sure that you have uninsured / underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage, and that you also have medical payments coverage. Your insurance will have to contribute and help to make you whole if the other driver had no insurance, or not enough insurance for your case.  

I recommend that you have at least $100,000 of UM/UIM coverage. More is obviously better, but the bare minimum I’d recommend is $100,000.  

For medical payments coverage or ‘Medpay’, I’d recommend at least $5,000. In Arizona, you don’t have to reimburse your insurance company for any medical payments amount less than or equal to $5,000.
