Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are responsible for approximately 50,000 injuries
and 3,000 deaths every year in the United States. Of all the types of
motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents are the most likely to result
in fatalities, in which case a
wrongful death claim will need to be made. The most common causes of motorcycle accidents are:
Road Hazards: Uneven pavement, potholes, debris, and puddles are known to cause motorcycle
Weather Conditions: Rain, hail, wind, and snow increase dangerous driving conditions.
Unsafe Vehicle Maneuvering: Speeding, improper turning, etc.
Limited Motorcycle Visibility: Motorcycles aren't as visible to other cars.
Vehicle Blind Spots: Motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles and are sometimes overlooked
by careless drivers.
Mechanical Defects: Motorcycle parts and systems can malfunction.
The Serious Nature of Motorcycle Accidents
Due to the sheer size of a motorcycle and its rider, motorcycle accidents
have the potential to result in some of the most devastating injuries
imaginable. Most motorcyclists are aware of the uphill battle that they
must endure on a daily basis just by sharing the road with other motorists.
Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Road rash
- Broken bones, fractures, and joint dislocations
- Soft tissue damages
- Loss of limbs or amputation
- Swelling, bruising, bleeding, and scarring
- Head trauma, including traumatic brain injuries
- Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
Motorcyclists may take the proper precautions by wearing protective helmets,
shields, and boots. Unfortunately, there is no safety net to protect a
motorcyclist from the impending damages after a collision involving any
type of car, truck, or commercial vehicle.
Why You Should Never Sign the Dotted Line
Insurance companies and healthcare providers are merely cogs in a billion-dollar
industry. Do not expect your insurance company to be looking out for your
best interests after an accident. Many companies and insurance adjusters
will try to get you to settle for money that is far less than what you
are actually entitled to - forcing you to pay additional out-of-pocket
expenses after an accident.
