Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Despite preconceived notions, many motorcycle accidents are caused by other motorists on the road rather than by motorcyclists themselves. Drivers have a duty to look for motorcyclists and safely share the road with them. Unfortunately, whether it's due to the inability to see a relatively small, two-wheeled motorcycle or misjudging a rider's speed, drivers frequently make mistakes which result in deadly consequences.

Driver behaviors which often contribute to motorcycle accidents include:

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Following too closely
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Reckless / aggressive driving

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Even low-speed motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries to riders. While drivers of cars and trucks are protected by seatbelts, air bags, and the metal frame of a motor vehicle, motorcyclists have little protection in the event of a crash and can suffer major physical trauma.

Motorcycle accidents can cause injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Broken bones
  • Amputation
  • Road rash
  • Internal organ damage

Aggressive Advocacy

It is crucial to get a knowledgeable attorney on your side as soon as possible. Insurance companies will act to protect themselves and their clients. Having an experienced lawyer fighting for your rights can mean all the difference.
