Types of Motorcycle Accidents

Have you been injured in a motorcycle accident?

When cars and motorcycles collide, the rider on a bike is at far greater risk than the driver. With no protection from a vehicle, the rider depends wholly on a helmet, protective clothing and alert senses to avoid injury or loss of life. There are many common situations that lead to motorcycle accidents, including slippery road surfaces or mechanical failure. In many cases, the accident involves a collision between the rider and a car or truck and all too often, it is the driver of the motor vehicle who is at fault. Studies show that a majority of these accidents occur when a driver fails to see a motorcyclist when executing a left turn or a U-turn. Even when the motorcyclist is riding at low speeds or is at a standstill catastrophic injury or death can occur and often does when a car or truck collides with a rider. Unsafe lane changes with a vehicle driver failing to notice a motorcycle in the next lane is a common reason for terrible and deadly motorcycle accidents.

If the driver who is liable was driving recklessly, aggressively or drunk, was texting while driving or was otherwise distracted, they can be considered negligent and should be held accountable, especially in hit-and-run accidents where the driver flees the scene and leaves a rider injured or dead.
