Motorcycle accidents almost always cause serious injuries. Though they are not as frequent as car accidents, it is 35 times more likely that someone could be killed from a motorcycle accident. Most accidents are head-on collisions. Only five percent of accidents are caused by another vehicle striking the motorcycle from behind.
These situations are often the source of many motorcycle accidents:
- Left-hand turns
- Lane splitting
- Running a red light
- Other traffic violations
- Road defects or obstacles
- Defective auto parts
Many motorcycle accidents involve head-on collisions. Most of these types of accidents can cause serious injury or death, likely because motorcyclists are offered little protection compared to automobile drivers. One could argue that motorcyclists are much more skilled vehicle operators, as they need to be extra cautious, vigilant, and have the ability to maneuver swiftly on the road. Despite this, the negligent actions of others can still cause accident. If you have been injured, you need an attorney who is invested exclusively in your needs. You want to have someone on your side, with the tenacity, reputation, and a proven record of success.
