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.
