Reasons For Motorcycle Accidents

People riding on motorcycles know they are especially vulnerable in the event of an accident. They have to be especially vigilant to avoid collisions with other motorists who may not know how to safely share the road. Some of the most common reasons for motorcycle accidents include:

  • Bad weather and poor road conditions
  • Inexperienced motorists
  • Not always being seen by other drivers

When the steel frame of a moving vehicle collides with a motorcycle, motorcyclists and their passengers can suffer serious, if not fatal, injuries. Motorcycle accidents often lead to:

  • Brain injuries and head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Road rash and serious skin abrasions
  • Loss of limbs
  • Catastrophic and debilitating injuries

Our motorcycle accident lawyers believe that motorcycle enthusiasts have the right to enjoy the road like any other type of motorist. We provide guidance after a collision.
