Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries, and even death, to the motorcyclist. Often, these accidents involve a collision between a motorcyclist and a car, truck, or other motor vehicle. Because the the motorcyclist has very little in the way of protection other than a helmet, even low impact crashes can result in severe injuries such as:
Blaming the Victim
Defendants and their insurance companies often seek to blame the motorcyclist/victim for causing the accident. The motorcyclist may be portrayed as unsafe and reckless, when in fact, it is often the driver of the vehicle who failed to operate in a safe manner.
Investigating the Cause of Motorcycle Accidents
In motorcycle accidents, we carefully investigate all aspects of the accident. We never assume that there is only a single cause.
In many cases, in addition to the other driver, other factors and conditions may contribute to an accident. These factors can include dangerous road conditions due to poor maintenance or construction, poor visibility due to overgrown vegetation along the side of the roadway, or improperly functioning traffic signals.
In motorcycle accidents involving cars, trucks, or other vehicles, driver distraction and driver fatigue often are contributing factors to the accident. Driver distraction can be caused by a number of factors, including the use of cell phones and texting while driving. Driver fatigue can also be extremely deadly, as even careful drivers can cause serious accidents when they are tired.
