Types of Motorcycle Accidents
Our experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help you with any type of motorcycle accident claim. Yours may fall under more than one of the following:
- Hit and run
- Single vehicle motorcycle accident
- Driver negligence
- Defective product – motorcycle, part, or helmet
- Defective roadway
- Motorcycle accident involving fuel-fed fire
- Serious or catastrophic injuries
- Wrongful death
The number one cause of accidents involving a car vs. a motorcycle is failure to observe the motorcycle’s right of way, typically at intersections where the car makes a left-hand turn into the path of the motorcycle. The number one excuse that drivers give for hitting motorcyclists is that they did not see the motorcycle.
Motorcycles are very susceptible to roadway defects such as gravel or debris left on the road, potholes and other damage which is not repaired in a timely fashion, and defective road design.
In the event of an accident, motorcycle operators and riders are extremely vulnerable to roadway crashworthiness defects, such as lack of breakaway mechanisms on light and sign posts.
Severe injuries common in motorcycle accidents include:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Sever road rash
- Severe burns
- Neck and back injury
- Facial injuries
- Shoulder injury
- Knee injury
