Dooring Accidents

Our attorneys understand the dangers

Motorcycles aren’t only present on the open roads. Sometimes, motorcyclists make their way through busy city streets or narrow residential roads. And they have just as much of a right to ride in these areas as passenger-vehicle drivers. However, the safety of motorcyclists isn’t always their top priority. Some drivers and passengers may open their car doors without checking the side mirrors or watching for oncoming traffic, resulting in a serious motorcycle accident.

The attorneys at Northern Plains Justice understand that dooring accidents are just one of the many dangers motorcyclists face every day. A simple act of negligence can result in injuries that could take months, or years, to recover from. That’s why we want to help you on your road to recovery. Contact us today, so we can further discuss your options.

Injuries sustained from dooring accidents

The injuries that motorcyclists sustain from dooring accidents can be severe and life threatening. Drivers and passengers may open their doors quickly and without any warning. This leaves motorcyclists with little time to stop or get out of the way. In some cases, motorcyclists may not be able to swerve out of the way due to oncoming traffic or a street being too narrow. Doing so only puts them at risk of a potentially more devastating crash.

Dooring accidents can often result in serious injuries such as:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Spine injuries
  • Cuts, bruises and abrasions
  • Organ damage
  • Paralysis
  • Death

Your claim matters to us

Following a dooring accident, you should always seek medical attention, even if you don’t experience any immediate injury symptoms. Some injuries may take days to develop. And if left untreated, such injuries can sometimes result in life-long complications. The longer you wait, the less likely you’ll be compensated for your medical expenses, loss of wages and suffering. Don’t rely on the negligent party’s insurance company to compensate you to the fullest extent. They may try to downplay your injuries or pin the blame on you. That’s not right.

Know your rights. Take the right course of action. Talk to an attorney at Northern Plains Justice. We put your needs first. We can launch a thorough investigation using details from the police report, witnesses and your medical evaluation to build a strong case. If the negligent party’s insurance company just won’t budge, no problem. We can take them to trial if necessary.
