How Motorcycle Accidents Happen

When motorcyclists, passenger car drivers, or both fail to exercise the proper degree of care that’s owed to others on the road, the risk of a crash increases. Examples of driver negligence that can contribute to a motorcycle crash include:

  • Failing to look before changing lanes;
  • Failing to check blind spots;
  • Speeding;
  • Driving while drunk, impaired, distracted, or fatigued;
  • Driving aggressively; and
  • Failing to adhere to traffic safety rules.

In addition to the dangerous behaviors of vehicle operations, poor road conditions, animals in the road, weather conditions, and defective vehicle parts may also cause or contribute to a crash, too.

Common Injuries from a Motorcycle Crash

Without seatbelts, vehicle frames, or airbags, the injuries that a motorcyclist is at risk of suffering in a crash are very serious. Common injuries from a motorcycle crash include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries;
  • Facial and scalp injuries;
  • Road rash injuries;
  • Bone fracture injuries;
  • Internal injuries;
  • Soft tissue injuries; and
  • Spinal cord injuries.

Of course, the list is not inclusive. In addition to those injuries listed above and any other not listed, a motorcyclist may also suffer psychological harm as a result of the accident.

Liability for a Motorcycle Accident

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, determining liability will be a key part of recovering damages, as the party whose negligence caused your injuries will be the party responsible for paying your damages (typically via their liability insurance provider). Our motorcycle accident lawyers can open an investigation into your accident, gathering evidence and talking to witnesses, in order to build your claim and make a strong case for the other party’s liability.

Once you have filed your claim, our lawyers will work hard to negotiate your settlement and disprove any allegations of fault made against you. Our goal is to get you a fair compensation award that fully compensates you for the degree of harm you have suffered.
