Any vehicle carries the potential for accidents and injuries when it enters the road. For motorcycles, a crash carries a higher risk of serious harm or even death. Nearly 5,000 people were killed in a motorcycle accident in 2012 alone, according to statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration.

The smaller size of a motorbike can make it more difficult for other drivers to see, and those moments of negligence on the road carry a heightened risk for motorcycle riders. Limited protection from the impact with another vehicle or the road means that the injuries inflicted during an accident are often severe.

When a motorcycle wreck is caused by the negligence of another person, the responsible individual may be liable for the resulting damages. A single moment of distraction, inattention, or other error could seriously injure a motorcyclist, and the injured party should not be responsible for the financial burdens caused by another driver’s mistake.

Causes of Motorcycle Collisions

Causes of motorcycle crashes include:

  • Distraction from passengers, music devices, cellphones, and other issues
  • Failure to obey traffic signals
  • Failure to yield
  • Changing lanes unexpectedly
  • Speeding

Motorcycle riders are more exposed to the impact of a collision with another vehicle or the road, which increases their chances of sustaining serious injuries in the event of a vehicle accident. What would barely cause minor damage to a car could cause devastating damage to a motorcycle and its rider. Broken bones, burns, paralysis, and amputations are common results of motorcycle accidents, especially in high-speed wrecks. An Alice motorcycle crash attorney understands how to secure damages for any of these injuries.

When a motorcyclist is injured on the road, they face a wide range of injuries. Even a seemingly minor injury can lead to overwhelming medical bills or an inability to work. Those who are injured in a motorcycle accident through another’s negligence can face costs that include hospital visits, medications, lost wages, physical therapy, and the costs of medical equipment such as a wheelchair.
