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 accidents.
  • 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
  • Fatality

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.

We have been representing victims throughout Southern California since 1987 and we know a scam when we see one. Because we are personally committed to maximizing the compensation of every client we take on, we have honed our trial skills to focus on our clients' unique needs and create a tailored solution for every case. We know your rights and protections under the law and we won't cease from advocating for your interests until you receive the money you deserve.
