Many drivers in Kansas simply do not see motorcycles as easily as automobile while other drivers ignore motorcycles on the highway. Other drivers fail to grant motorcycles the full use of the road or the legal right of way. Because of this, motorcycle riders are at higher risk than other vehicle drivers for serious injury.
Tragically, motorcycle accidents cause high number of catastrophic injuries on Kansas' highways.
Many juries, and some judges, are predisposed to find motorcycle riders at fault. For this reason, if you were injured in a motorcycle accident, or if you have lost a loved one in a collision, it is critical that you speak to an attorney who understands motorcycle accident reconstruction.

Investigating Motorcycle Accidents
A complete and thorough investigation is critical. There can be a number of causes for the motorcycle accident, some of which may not be apparent until there has been a thorough investigation of your case. Factors that could contribute to the motorcycle accident include:
- Highway design
- Stopping distances
- Field of vision by the rider and opposing vehicle operator
- Vision obstructions, including signage and shrubbery
Reconstruction of a motorcycle accident often requires prompt identification and analysis of road debris and gouge marks produced from the impact of the bike on the pavement. This type of investigation must be done soon after the accident has occurred in order to guarantee that it is accurate.
