For nearly four decades, attorney Randall “Randy” Sevenish has been an avid motorcycle enthusiast and rider. He is a “Real Motorcycle Lawyer and Real Rider©” unlike others who may have their photo taken while sitting on a motorcycle for a marketing campaign. He knows the physics and dynamics of riding a motorcycle, and he knows and understands motorcycle injury law. He also appreciates the losses that motorcycle riders suffer in a crash.
This is why bikers know, like and can trust him as an Indianapolis motorcycle accident lawyer. In fact, the Sevenish Law Firm is the only law firm in Indiana that has been recommended by the nationally recognized Road Gaurdians, an organization dedicated to the education and safety of its members. Road Guardians also offers extensive and certified safety for motorcyclists and occasionally hosts a national convention known as the “Biker’s Betterment Conference” in the Chicagoland area. When so doing, Mr. Sevenish is the lead attorney on the panel and speaker at these events on legal issues affecting motorcyclists.
Common Causes of Indiana Motorcycle Accidents
It should come as no surprise to any biker that a large percentage of motorcycle accidents are caused by the inability or failure of an automobile driver to actually see the motorcyclist. Crashes may also be caused by a car driver:
- Following the motorcyclist too closely, or “tailgating”
- Failing to yield the right of way to the motorcyclist
- Attempting to pass the motorcyclist too closely or “share” a lane
- Taking deliberate action to intimidate the motorcyclist
