Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries
There are numerous types of injuries and complications that can come as a result of a motorcycle accident. Unlike a passenger vehicle, motorcyclists are subjected to impact with the pavement, stationary objects, and other cars. Even riders fully equipped with helmets, chest protectors, and protective gear can still face catastrophic injuries.
It is not uncommon for motorcycle riders to have any of the following injuries after an accident:
- Broken bones
- Spinal complications
- Road rash
- Head and neck injuries
These injuries can leave riders facing lengthy recoveries, wage loss, high medical bills, and physical and emotional trauma. If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, the Law Office of Scott B. Brilliant can help you retain compensation.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists often get a bad reputation, but in reality, they are often much more careful in operating their bikes than automobile drivers are. In fact, since motorcyclists have to take so many additional tests, they are often much more alert about their surroundings and aware of highway signs and speeding limits. Tragically, automobile drivers can be very careless about giving enough room to motorcyclists, and even crowd them off the road, which leads to horrific accidents. Drivers of trucks and cars with large blind spots often do not check for motorcyclists, which can also create a major collision.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Unsafe lane changes
- Sudden stops
- Driving under the influence
- Failure to yield
- Running a red light or stop sign
Determining Liability in a Motorcycle Accident Claim
It is important to collect as much evidence as you can to determine liability. Insurance companies will try to place the blame on you so that they do not have to pay as much financial support. To obtain the rightful compensation that you deserve for the pain and suffering you received after a collision, it is critical to show how the other party was liable for the accident. Taking photos, getting eyewitness accounts, and asking for the police report can help prove your cause.
