Sharing the Road with Motorcycles



Motorcycle accidents can potentially lead to severe, even catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, many of these accidents are the fault of the automobile driver and are often preventable. Drivers of cars, vans, trucks and other vehicles have a responsibility to drive cautiously, so that motorcycle riders have a better chance of staying safe on the road.

Ways You Can Help Motorcyclists Stay Safe

There are substantially more trucks and cars than motorcycles on the road, which is often why many drivers tend to forget to look out for them.

Here are some ways you can prevent motorcycle accidents:

  • Due to their size, motorcycles often easily hide in the blind spots of cars. To ensure you do not miss them, it is important to always take a moment to check for motorcycles when turning at an intersection or changing lanes.
  • Motorcycles also tend to appear farther away. To prevent a collision, assume that they are closer than they look.
  • A bumper-to-bumper accident with a motorcycle is far more dangerous than one between two automobiles, so it is important to leave plenty of distance to ensure you are always able to stop on time.

Motorcyclists have the same rights as other motorists on the road, so keep this in mind as you share the road with them.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists can sustain a vast range of injuries when involved in an accident.

Below is a list of some of the most common ones:

Road Hazards and Motorcycle Accidents

Although negligent drivers are often at fault for motorcycle accidents. Road conditions also play a part, at times. Some road hazards and conditions are simply acts of nature. Others are the fault of local governments.

Here are some common hazardous road conditions that may cause a motorcycle accident:

  • Construction debris
  • Fallen rocks, signs, or trees
  • Potholes
  • High winds, ice, and fog
  • Loose gravel
  • Standing water
  • Poor road design
  • Steep drop-offs

Catastrophic Injuries And How They Occur

Catastrophic Injuries and How They Occur



Catastrophic injuries are often life-threatening and, in most cases, survivors are unable to achieve a full recovery, affecting their ability to live life as they once knew it. These types of injuries include traumatic brain injuries, disfiguring burns, spinal cord damage, and amputation injuries. Continue reading to find out more about how these injuries occur.

The Most Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Recognizing and understanding the causes of catastrophic injuries can help survivors seek the compensation they need to move forward.

Here are some of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries:

  • Motor vehicle accidents, including those that involve trucks and motorcycles. Truck accidents are particularly life-threatening due to their weight and size. It is not uncommon for survivors to walk away from these terrible incidents with permanent, life-altering damage. These accidents are frequently the result of negligence, such as distracted driving, speeding, and drunk driving.
  • Pedestrians are very vulnerable, so when they collide with a motor vehicle, the results can be catastrophic. These accidents often happen at intersections when drivers fail to pay attention to their surroundings, checking only for oncoming vehicles, but not for pedestrians.
  • Slip and fall accidents may not sound serious, but these accidents are among some of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries. Construction sites are some of the most common locations where these incidents occur.
  • In the absence of proper safety precautions, fires and explosions can occur, resulting in terrible burn injuries that lead to permanent disfigurement.

Catastrophic injury cases tend to involve more substantial damages due to the nature of the injury and the unlikelihood the survivor will ever achieve a complete recovery. That is why it is essential to hire an attorney with extensive experience in handling such cases, giving you the best chance of maximizing compensation for your suffering.
