A Quick Guide to Virginia’s Motorcycle Laws

If you plan on learning to ride a motorcycle, or if you are a new Virginia resident that already has one, you should be aware of the Virginia motorcycle laws. You should also know what to do in case of an accident while you’re riding. This guide is a quick reference for motorcycle operators and passengers. Helmets and Licensing Virginia residents must pass written and skills tests to receive a motorcycle classification on their driver’s license. You can find more information about the test and the Virginia Motorcycle Operator guide on the Virginia DMV website. You must register your motorcycle with the DMV and have valid insurance. You must also have a securely fixed license plate. The Virginia motorcycle helmet law says that all riders must wear a helmet that meets certain minimum requirements. Riders must also wear eye protection or have a windshield.  Required Equipment VA motorcycle laws do not have a minimum age limit for passengers, but all passengers must use footrests/pegs, have their own seat, and wear helmets and eye protection. Motorcycles need headlights, horns, and rearview mirrors unless they are designed for trail riding and operated during daylight hours. The required lights are: At least one headlight visible from 200 feet, A tail light visible from 500 feet, A working brake light, and A license plate light visible from 50 feet. Motorcycles must have brakes on both the front and rear wheels and mufflers. Your bike must pass an annual safety inspection. Traffic Laws Some traffic signals have sensors that detect when a motorist is waiting at the light. However, motorcycles, because of their small size, sometimes fail to trigger the sensor. When this happens, VA law permits motorcyclists to pass through the light provided they come to a full stop, check all directions, and wait at least two full minutes. If the light is non-responsive, the motorcyclist must wait for at least two full cycles before proceeding.  Some people wonder, is lane splitting legal in Virginia? Lane splitting means riding a motorcycle between two lanes of stopped or slow-moving traffic that is going in the same direction. It is a way for motorcyclists to bypass congestion. While there is currently proposed legislation to allow lane splitting, it is not legal in Virginia. This is distinct from lane sharing, which refers to the practice of motorcyclists riding side-by-side or abreast in the same lane; lane sharing is legal in Virginia.  Motorcyclists may also ride in HOV lanes and on all public roadways and use facilities built with public funds, such as parking garages. You can find more detailed information about VA motorcycle laws in the Virginia Code. I Was in a Motorcycle Accident—Now What? If you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.  If you weren’t seriously injured, you could pursue the claim yourself with the other party’s insurance company.  We advise you not to provide a recorded statement to the insurance company. You should know that the first offer will most likely be a lowball offer.  If you accept it, you give up your right to recover any other money from them.  The insurance company will try to pay you the least amount possible.  However, if you received medical attention for your injuries or are concerned about being taken advantage of by the insurance company, you should speak to a VA motorcycle accident attorney.  River Run Law will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf for a favorable settlement.  If we are unable to settle the case favorably, we would discuss your options with you and file a lawsuit if that makes sense for your situation.  Contact us today to schedule a free case analysis.  We do not charge any legal fees unless your attorney recovers a settlement or wins a lawsuit on your behalf.

River Run Law’s Casey Ariail Weighs in on Virginia’s New COVID-19 Workers’ Compensation Laws

Richmond, VA (September 7, 2021) — Virginia recently passed a law extending COVID-19-related workers’ compensation coverage to first responders and front-line medical workers. This expansion allows these kinds of employees who contract or contracted COVID-19 to seek compensation from their employers.  Workers’ compensation attorneys expect complications from this new law. When a claim is filed, the law presupposes that the employee contracted the virus while at work. The employer or their insurance company must affirmatively show that the infection did not happen while the employee was working. This will be extremely difficult for employers to accomplish.  Casey Ariail recently spoke with Virginia Mercury, an online news publication, about the ripple effect he expects this new law to have on the legal profession. This new law “flips the burden,” the article quotes Casey. “Typically, for the person bringing any kind of claim, it’s on them to prove it. And that’s why these laws are important—the presumption flips the burden of proof to the employer.” In addition to this untraditional shifting of the burden of proof, Casey also discussed the nature of the law is retroactive. First responders can file suit for claims that accrued on or after July 1, 2020. Front line medical workers can go all the way back to March 12, 2020. Casey explained, in the Virginia Mercury article, that the global pandemic by itself is a strong defense for making the law retroactive. However, many opposing attorneys question the timing of passing the law so late in the pandemic. Virginia attorneys plan to test the new law out first within the context of extreme cases. The reasoning behind this is that any potential snafus can be resolved before relying on this law in legal claims. “I feel like, unfortunately, someone is going to have to be the first one to test this,” Casey said in the article. “Everyone’s kind of learning as we go—it’s like building an airplane as you’re flying it. And the unfortunate part is that the people it gets worked out on are the ones who are going to suffer through the process.” The full article is available on the Virginia Mercury website.
