The Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Some motorcycle accidents are caused by negligent (careless) drivers while others are the fault of the motorcycle rider him or herself. In some accidents, fault is mutually shared between the rider and one or several other drivers. It is even possible for government negligence to cause the accident in the failure to provide the proper street signs and road conditions such as:
- Distracted driving
- Failing to yield
- Running a stop sign
- Running a red light
- Sudden lane changes
- Malfunctions or manufacturing defects
More often than not, drivers fail to see the motorcyclist or simply refuse to provide the rider with the proper level of care, causing an accident that has the potential to prove deadly.
It merely takes a sudden lane change to cause a collision that leads to the rider’s death or a significant injury. Furthermore, there is also the potential for a defect with the motorcycle or the negligence on behalf of a mechanic to cause a motorcycle accident.
Motorcyclists can do their part to prevent an accident or at least minimize injury resulting from a collision by wearing a helmet and following the rules of the road. Motorcyclists should refrain from lane splitting, meaning it is a mistake to ride in between lanes. Motorcyclists should also be cognizant of the potential for car doors to swing open, impeding their path. Mind your rate of speed, refrain from riding after consuming alcohol or drugs, avoid riding in drivers’ blind spots and you will have done your part to prevent an accident.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Sadly, many motorcycle accidents result in death. If you manage to survive such a collision, you will likely have at least one significant injury. such as
- Road Rash
- Broken Bone
- Head Trauma
- Loss of Limb
- Partial/Full Paralysis
- Loss of limbs
- Shoulder, neck, back, hand and wrist injuries
We Seek Full Compensation for Your Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Accidents involving motorcycles tend to be particularly harmful simply because motorcyclists lack the protective metal shell that surrounds automobile drivers. Add in the fact that a seatbelt and airbags are not connected to the motorcycle and the impact of a collision has even more potential to cause life-changing injuries. If another person, business, governmental institution or other party is even partially responsible fo your motorcycle accident, lean on our legal team to pursue full compensation on your behalf.
Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys will fiercely advocate on your behalf to maximize your financial compensation in the mission to make you whole again. The bottom line is the aftermath of a motorcycle accident is not cheap. You will have egregiously expensive medical costs in the near future and also across posterity, assuming your injury lingers. Add in the fact that such accidents typically cause significant pain and suffering, necessitate extensive rehab and minimize your ability to participate in the workforce and you have all the more reason to take action with a personal injury lawsuit.
We Will File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit Following Your Loved One’s Motorcycle Crash
There is a common misconception that no legal taction can be taken in the event of a loved one’s death in a motorcycle accident. If you lose a loved one in such an accident, do not suffer in silence. Instead, lean on our legal team to zealously advocate on your behalf, pursuing financial compensation for your loss of comfort, loss of financial assistance, burial costs, funeral costs and other losses related to the motorcycle accident.

How to Proceed After a Motorcycle Crash
If you are involved in a motorcycle crash, you are likely wondering what to do next. The worst thing you can do is nothing. You should not have to pay for your medical care if another party’s carelessness (negligence) is in any way responsible for the collision and the need for subsequent care and/or other related expenses. In short, your focus should be on rebuilding your body and getting in the right mind state to return to work. Our legal team will handle all the legal challenges associated with such an unfortunate even while you do your part to heal and eventually return to work.
The best course of action in the immediate aftermath of a motorcycle injury is to remain at the site of the crash. If you cannot move well or at all, remain in your position and contact emergency personnel for assistance. Ideally, you will be able to move to the extent necessary to gather evidence from the site of the accident. This is your opportunity to take pictures of your injuries, the automobile(s) involved in the collision and the intersection or part of the road where it occurred. Take pictures of damage to the street, nearby signs, vehicles and other property affected by the crash.
If anyone witnessed the crash, record their contact information with your smartphone’s video recording feature. The last and most important step is to reach out to our legal team for assistance in your mission for financial compensation.
