Motorcyclists are subjected to a certain amount of risk when they share the road with larger vehicles, such as cars, trucks, and buses. Because bikers are relatively unprotected—even when wearing helmets and safety gear—they tend to suffer far more serious injuries and a higher fatality rate than other types of motorists. Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence of other drivers.

HOW NEGLIGENCE LEADS TO MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS

As previously mentioned, negligence is often a leading factor in motorcycle accidents. Automobile drivers don’t always check for bikers, who may be more difficult to spot than other types of motorists. However, failing to see a motorcycle is not an excuse for a collision. On the contrary, it often points to carelessness on the part of the automobile driver.

Other common causes of motorcycle accidents that can be attributed to negligence include:

  • Distracted driving, including cellphone use
  • Speeding
  • Following too closely (“tailgating”)
  • Reckless and/or aggressive driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
  • Changing lanes across a motorcyclist’s path
  • Turning into the path of an oncoming motorcyclist
  • Running red lights/stop signs
  • Dangerous or defective road conditions
  • Unsafe road design
  • Faulty safety equipment, such as motorcycle helmets
  • Defective motorcycle parts

The specific circumstances involved in your accident will determine who is liable for your injuries and how much your case may be worth. It is best to discuss your options with an experienced personal injury attorney.

COMMON INJURIES IN MOTORCYCLE COLLISIONS

Motorcycle collisions often result in devastating injuries for bikers. Both motorcycle operators and passengers are likely to be thrown from the motorcycle when they collide with or are hit by other vehicles.

Motorcyclists involved in accidents often suffer:

  • Serious cuts, scrapes, bruises, and lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Accidental amputations
  • Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage

These and other catastrophic injuries have serious physical, emotional, and financial implications. Victims will require extensive medical treatment, both immediate and ongoing. They will likely have to take time off work to receive care and, in severe cases, may not be able to return to work at all. This can quickly become incredibly costly and the emotional repercussions are immense.

WHY YOU NEED AN EXPERIENCED ATTORNEY

Motorcycle accident claims can be very complex. You will need to prove that someone else—another driver, a parts manufacturer, or another party—was responsible for the accident and that this accident led to your injuries. At The Mellino Law Firm, we can handle every aspect of your claim so that you can focus on getting the crucial care you need. Our motorcycle accide
