Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in the United States

Some common factors contributing to motorcycle accidents include:

  • Distracted driving: Drivers texting, talking on the phone, or engaging in other distracted behaviors may not see a motorcyclist or respond in time.
  • Failure to yield: Many drivers do not understand traffic laws and will fail to yield the right of way to motorcyclists, especially at intersections.
  • Speeding: Driving at an excessive speed reduces reaction times and can increase the severity of an accident.
  • Impaired driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs a driver’s judgment and reduces reaction speeds, and is never safe.
  • Unsafe lane changes: Drivers who change lanes suddenly, without checking blind spots or adequately signaling, are at greater risk of colliding with motorcyclists.

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by factors outside of the rider’s control, but if motorcyclists want to proactively reduce their risks, there are three main steps to take: always wear a helmet, always ride within speed limits, and avoid riding under the influence of alcohol.

Types of Injuries Associated with Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle crashes tend to be particularly deadly. Motorcycle riders make up 14% of all traffic fatalities in the United States, despite being a much smaller percentage of all total traffic.

Motorcycle riders are at risk of many serious injuries in the event of an accident, including the following:

  • Head and brain injuries: Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a major risk in a motorcycle accident, particularly when the rider is not wearing a helmet. TBIs can have long-lasting repercussions. However, helmet use can reduce head injuries by up to 69%.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Motorcycle accidents can involve great impacts with limited protection, putting the spine at risk. Spinal cord injuries can lead to paralysis or loss of motor function.
  • Fractures and dislocations: Broken bones and joint injuries are common in the impacts created by motorcycle accidents.
  • Road rash: Sliding along the road during an accident can create severe abrasions that may lead to painful skin infections or scarring.

Internal injuries: Internal bleeding and organ damage may not be immediately apparent, but are an unfortunate possibility after a motorcycle accident.

Understanding the Bias Against Motorcyclists and How it Can Affect Your Claim

Unfortunately, there’s a tendency for the general public to see motorcyclists as reckless and prone to causing accidents. This can affect your ability to pursue your claim, particularly if your case goes before a jury.

It’s essential to work with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer who understands these assumptions and knows the right arguments to counter them. It can make all the difference in securing your compensation.

How long do I have to file a motorcycle accident?

The statute of limitations for filing a claim varies from state to state, but it typically ranges from one to six years. Consult with a lawyer promptly to make sure your claim is filed within the time limit.

Fault is determined by an examination of the evidence. Witness statements, police reports, and any available traffic cam footage are all taken into account. An experienced lawyer can help establish liability and negotiate on your behalf.

Helmet laws vary from state to state. In areas with helmet laws, not wearing a helmet may affect liability. However, even if you weren’t wearing a helmet at the time of your accident, you can still receive compensation for damages caused by another party’s negligence. Consulting with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can help you explore your legal options.
