Negligence & Motorcycle Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are 30 times more likely to suffer fatalities in a traffic accident than the occupants of a passenger car. In the past decade, approximately 5,000 riders have lost their lives annually in the U.S.
Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Other drivers failing to see motorcycles, especially when making lane changes
- Motorists opening car doors in the path of oncoming riders
- Motorists making left turns in the path of riders
- Distracted drivers
- Drunk or drug-impaired drivers
- Poor road design or maintenance
- Sudden stops
These types of accidents can cause injuries such as brain damage, spinal cord damage, broken bones, organ damage, neck and back injuries, the loss of limbs, road rash, and more. The need for extensive medical care, the inability to work, and immense financial stress often impact injured riders.
