A Wilmington Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Fights for Your Best Interests
Wilmington, North Carolina is a great place to ride your motorcycle. It’s the climax to a charming ride from Raleigh through rural farmland and the scenic turnaround point for a well-known run from Myrtle Beach.

Unfortunately, not every motorcycle ride ends safely. No matter how vigilant you are, accidents can and do happen. Some examples of the dangers riders face in Wilmington include a motorcyclist who suffered severe injuries on Eastwood Road near Landfall and a woman who was in a fatal collision with a car on South College Road.

How Dangerous Is Riding a Motorcycle?
Thousands of motorcyclists died in 2020 across the country. Motorcyclists were also four times more likely to be injured in a crash than occupants of cars. Common injuries from a motorcycle wreck include everything from road rash to brain damage. In the most extreme cases, your loved one may have been killed through the negligence of another.
Of course, most rides end without incident. To encourage incident-free rides, the law requires you to wear a DOT-approved helmet when you take out your motorcycle. Passengers must meet the same requirement, regardless of age. As for the rest of your body, we urge you to follow the ATGATT principle: all the gear, all the time. Protective gear can help minimize or eliminate injury in the event of a crash.
What Damages Can I Recover After a Wreck?
Unfortunately, wearing your helmet and full riding gear may not always be sufficient to prevent serious injury due to the recklessness of another driver.
You have the right to seek compensation and try to be “made whole” if you were injured due to the negligence of another on the road. Some damages you may be able to collect from the at-fault driver include:
- medical bills
- lost wages and
- pain and suffering
Motorcycles and Wrongful Death
Collisions between motorcycles and passenger cars can result in death for an innocent motorcyclist. As a surviving family member, you may choose to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent driver. In this type of lawsuit, you may be able to collect for loss of support, benefits, and future income due to the loss of your loved one. You may also be entitled to funeral and burial expenses.
