Indianapolis Intoxicated Driving Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident involving an intoxicated driver, contact Hankey Marks & Crider to get the compensation you deserve. Intoxicated driving is a rising cause of accidents. Because the consumption of alcohol inhibits reflexes and slows reaction time, it can be dangerous when coupled with driving. It is especially serious when it involves motorcycles because motorcyclists are much more vulnerable than regular cars. Because of the significant differences in size and weight between motorcycles and regular cars, an accident between the two results in severe injuries. An intoxicated driver could lose the ability to see clearly and hit a motorcyclist on the road, launching them in the air and even killing them. Because of the possibility of this happening, it is unacceptable to drive on a public road without taking precautions to protect every driver.
People who act recklessly deserve to be held accountable for their actions. To learn more about how you can recover compensation from those that injured you, contact the Indianapolis intoxicated driver motorcycle accident attorneys with Hankey Marks & Crider at (317) 634-8565 right away.
Do I Need an Attorney?
The injuries inflicted by a motorcycle accident caused by a drunk driver are severe and sometimes deadly. It is imperative to hold the drunk driver responsible. If this is not done, the drunk driver will not experience the consequences of their reckless actions, and they may continue to do it. This puts countless other drivers and passengers in danger of being hurt or killed.
These cases are exceedingly hard to win if you do not have help from experienced motorcycle accident attorneys. In order to get compensation, you will need to prove that the driver was intoxicated past the legal limit at the time of the crash. You will also need to remember the crash in detail to be able to present your case effectively. To prove injuries and show what compensation you deserve, you will have to gather medical bills, proof of lost wages, insurance information, and any other relevant document. You need the help of an experienced and skilled attorney to accomplish all these tasks.

Drunk Driving Motorcycle Accident Cases We Handle
The legal limit of intoxication while driving is .08 blood alcohol content. When a driver is under the influence of alcohol beyond the legal limit, it can cause serious effects that hinder their ability to operate a motor vehicle. In addition, drivers who are under the influence of illegal drugs and prescription medications may also lose their ability to drive properly and cause accidents. Examples of the effects of intoxication that impair driving include:
- Loss of consciousness: In any situation where an individual is intoxicated, they could lose consciousness. While driving a vehicle, this could be deadly. They could lose control of their vehicle, causing injuries to other drivers.
- Double vision: Double vision, especially when on a highway, could cause the driver to lose the ability to stay within their lane, causing injury in the event that their car crashes into a motorcycle.
- Slowed reaction time and reflexes: Because reflexes are not as fast while intoxicated, this could cause a driver to lose the ability to brake in time, therefore, hitting the car in front of them.
If a driver is under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription medicaiton while driving, they are more likely to lose control of their vehicle, not be able to brake in time, swerve into vehicles in other lanes, speed, or drive erratically.
