Indianapolis Speeding and Aggressive Driving Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a speeding or aggressive driver, Hankey Marks & Crider can help. Speeding and aggressive driving are two of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents. Because motorcycles are smaller and less protected than other vehicles, an accident at high-speeds is likely to cause serious, often permanent injuries, or even death. Motorcyclists don’t have the protection that a car provides through doors, metal frames, airbags, or seatbelts. Not having those safety features, coupled with the fact that cars and trucks are so much heavier than motorcycles, means accidents can be catastrophic.
If someone else’s recklessness caused your accident You should not have to have the financial responsibility for paying expenses caused by someone else’s negligence. Indiana law allows victims of motorcycle accidents to recover monetary compensation for their injuries and expenses after an accident caused by someone else. Hankey Marks & Crider can help you pursue this compensation and make sure you receive every penny you are owed.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
If you have suffered serious injuries, the negligent driver is probably concerned about having to pay for the damage they have caused. They are very likely to hire an aggressive attorney to try to get them out of trouble. The difference between getting the compensation you deserve and not getting any money at all depends on whether you have an attorney to represent your interests.
You need a lawyer that can prove the other driver was negligent and that they should have to pay for all of your medical bills, future rehabilitation costs, lost wages, property damage, and any other expenses incurred as a result of the accident. An attorney can investigate your case and gather all the evidence required to prove your case. In all likelihood, you will win much more money with an attorney on your side than you will trying to represent yourself.

Cases We Handle
Speeding and aggressive driving is negligent because it puts other drivers on public roads in danger. There are laws and traffic rules to prevent this behavior. But because drivers are sometimes prone to do both of those things, preventable accidents occur.
Speeding while using public roads can be extremely dangerous in any situation because higher speed means more damage in case of an accident. It also increases the chance of an accident because it takes more time to stop your vehicle. These are the common causes of motorcycle accidents due to speeding:
- Inability to stop in time once drivers notice a dangerous situation
- Inability to perceive risks because of speed
Aggressive driving is extremely unsafe because it makes it harder for other drivers to predict your actions. Aggressive drivers make unexpected choices, often at high speeds and with no warning, which can cause serious accidents, particularly for motorcyclists. Some examples of aggressive driving include:
- Failure to use turn signals
- Unnecessary use of horn that can startle a motorcyclist
- Quick and careless lane changes
- Disobeying traffic laws and posted signs
