Motorcycles are fun to ride and allow you to roam the open road freely. But we can all admit that they aren’t the safest mode of transportation. Motorcycle accidents result in unspeakable injury because you are not protected the same as you would be in a car. And as graphic as this will sound, victims are usually thrown from the motorcycle or run over, causing everything from broken limbs and road rash to permanent injury and death.
With all this being said, just because you choose to purchase a motorcycle or ride as a passenger on one doesn’t mean you don’t have just as many legal rights as other drivers. Our personal injury lawyers at Nelson Law Group can help pursue your claim for injuries suffered because of the carelessness or inattention of another driver.
Motorcycle crashes and causes
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, seek legal and medical attention immediately. Motorcycle accidents usually involve distracted or inattentive drivers but can also be because of a variety of other reasons, including:
- Hazardous road conditions
- Mechanical malfunctions
- Collisions with fixed objects
- Driver error/inexperienced drivers
- Sudden stops
- Confusing road features
Motorcycle accidents can result in terrible outcomes, a few of which include:
- Being forced off the road
- Going down on the road, making you vulnerable to oncoming traffic
- Being hit on the side or from the rear
- Head-on collisions
