How Motorcycle Accidents Happen

Motorcycles are smaller and lighter than cars, trucks, and SUVs. They are also less visible to other drivers. This makes them extremely vulnerable to being involved in accidents. Unfortunately, due to the lack of physical protection a standard vehicle would provide, motorcyclists are also much more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries, or even fatalities, in the event of an accident.

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by a variety of factors. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Lack of visibility to other drivers
  • Failure to yield the right-of-way
  • Speeding
  • Car doors
  • Lane switching
  • Lane splitting
  • Dangerous road conditions

  • Gather any evidence that will help your case
  • Get the contact information of any witnesses on the scene

We can help you with all of this and take the burden off of you. 

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries because of the lack of protection that motorcycles provide compared to other vehicles. Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): Head injuries are prevalent in motorcycle accidents, even with helmets. TBIs can have long-term consequences, affecting cognitive abilities and daily functioning.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: These injuries can lead to partial or complete paralysis, impacting mobility and quality of life.
  • Fractures and Broken Bones: The impact of a motorcycle accident can cause fractures and breaks, often requiring extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.
  • Road Rash: Severe abrasions from sliding on pavement can lead to infections and permanent scarring.
  • Internal Injuries: Blunt force trauma can cause damage to internal organs, requiring immediate medical attention.

Recovering Damages After a Motorcycle Accident

After a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation for many different types of damages. 

You may be able to recover damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Property damage
  • Punitive damages

Motorcycle accidents can be devastating. They can cause severe and life-altering injuries. They can also cause property damage to other vehicles. No matter what your situation may be, Van Ness Law is here to help.
