Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Because motorcycles are so small, drivers of other vehicles involved in motorcycle accidents often say that they couldn’t see the motorcycle. The majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers failing to give the motorcycle the “right of way.”
Common Motorcycle Injuries
According to motorcycle accident statistics, motorcycle accidents that involve other vehicles have a 98% chance of causing injury to the motorcycle rider. Motorcycles don’t have the protection of an enclosure that other vehicles provide. This often means that the injuries sustained by the motorcycle riders are more severe than those sustained by accidents involving two cars. Motorcycle accidents frequently involve brain injuries, burns, bone fractures, and even amputations.
The car does not have to actually strike the motorcycle and cause a collision to occur for the motorcycle rider to recover compensation. For example, if another vehicle cuts a motorcycle off, causing the motorcycle rider to veer off the road and crash, the rider may still be able to recover compensation from the driver who caused the accident.
