Motorcycle accidents involving a sidecar

Motorcyclists face a number of risks when they take to the road. Sadly, when a negligent driver collides with a motorcycle, the motorcyclist may face an especially high chance of sustaining an injury or even passing away. Furthermore, it is crucial to remember that each accident is unique. For example, if you have a sidecar on your motorcycle, someone riding along may sustain an injury when they are struck by a vehicle. Our law firm understands the hardships that motorcyclists face following an accident and we believe that victims of these wrecks deserve justice.

Motor vehicle collisions and influenza

While some motor vehicle accident causes receive a great deal of attention, such as accidents caused by drunk drivers, there are many other hazards and forms of risky behavior that may go under the radar. For example, some people in Honolulu may find themselves in a car accident because they were struck by someone who was too sick to safely operate a vehicle. Sadly, the consequences of a traffic collision can be extremely serious, without regard to the cause. From lost lives to physical pain and financial woes, victims of these wrecks deserve justice.

Fall weather and traffic collisions

Often, drivers are well aware of the hazards that ice and snow can present on roads across the country. However, some drivers do not realize that slick roads from heavy rainfall are also extremely dangerous. In fact, a large number of the weather-related traffic crashes that occur are the result of rainfall, so it is vital for you to be mindful of the risks whenever you drive in the rain or shortly after it has stopped raining. We know how dangerous the fall can be for everyone on the road and far too many people find themselves involved in an accident during this time of year.

FDA-approved drugs don't tell the whole story

You may be among the many patients who felt relief to learn that medication could control your medical condition instead of resorting to more drastic measures such as surgery. When your doctor prescribed a relatively new drug, you probably felt no concerns because you knew the drug had received the approval of the Food and Drug Administration.

Taking action after a deadly workplace accident

If you recently lost someone you loved due to a workplace accident, you could be going through many types of hardships. At Bickerton Law Group, LLLP, we know the immense emotional pain and serious financial challenges that spouses, children, and other relatives may go through following a deadly workplace accident. If your loved one passed away in Honolulu or another part of the state, and you believe their death was brought on by someone's negligent behavior, you should immediately take steps to pursue the justice they deserve.

Things to consider before joining a class action lawsuit

People in Hawaii could receive notice in the mail that they may be eligible to join a class action lawsuit when they were not even aware that they had been taken advantage of by a business or put at risk by a defective product. FindLaw explains that these may result in judgments in the millions. Even if they only provide a small payout when divided among the hundreds or even thousands of individuals involved, people may want to consider opting in.
