Investigating the Cause of Your Accident

Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys understand the unique complexities of these cases. We will thoroughly investigate the accident to determine liability and work diligently to build a strong case on your behalf. Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

Speeding and Reckless Driving

Both speeding by motorcycle riders and other drivers can lead to severe motorcycle crashes. Reckless driving, including sudden stops and aggressive maneuvers, further increases the risk of accidents.

Defective Motorcycle Parts

If a malfunctioning part contributed to the accident, we’ll hold manufacturers accountable.

Visibility Issues

Motorcycles are smaller and less visible than other vehicles, increasing the risk of collisions. Drivers of larger vehicles may fail to see motorcycles, especially at intersections or when changing lanes.

Road Hazards

Uneven road surfaces, potholes, and debris pose significant risks to motorcycle riders. Unlike cars, motorcycles are more susceptible to losing control when encountering these hazards.

Lack of Protective Gear

Wearing motorcycle helmets and other protective gear is crucial in reducing the severity of injuries. Despite the proven effectiveness of motorcycle helmets in preventing head injuries, not all riders adhere to helmet laws and safety recommendations.

The Unfortunate Impact of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents often lead to more serious injuries compared to accidents involving cars or other vehicles. The lack of protective barriers leaves riders vulnerable to the impact of collisions. Common injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): Even with motorcycle helmets, riders can suffer severe head injuries in accidents.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The force of vehicle crashes can damage the spinal cord, leading to paralysis or long-term disability.
  • Road Rash and Friction Burns: Riders can suffer painful abrasions and skin injuries.
  • Broken Bones: The impact of a collision can cause fractures and breaks.
  • Fatalities: The likelihood of a motorcycle fatality is significantly higher compared to car accidents due to the lack of protection for riders.
