Determining Liability in a Motorcycle Accident

While it is a good starting point to hold the driver responsible for the collision liable for your motorcycle accident, this may only take you so far, as that driver and their auto insurance company may attempt to place blame on you. To establish that you are not liable, it is crucial to understand the causes of motorcycle accidents and the evidence required to prove fair liability.

Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Drivers speeding through red lights
  • Drivers turning left in front of approaching motorcyclists
  • Drivers neglecting to check mirrors before changing lanes
  • Drivers refusing to share the road with motorcyclists

In many cases, driver inattention is the underlying form of negligence that leads to these crashes. Motorists who fail to pay attention to the road and the vehicles around them often fail to "see" motorcycles because they are trained to only acknowledge larger vehicles with two headlights.

Most Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists rely on helmets and protective gear to mitigate injuries in the event of an accident. However, these protective measures can only provide limited protection, and motorcyclists often sustain severe injuries in wrecks.

Life-changing injuries commonly experienced by motorcyclists in accidents include:

  • Spinal cord damage or paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Road rash and permanent scarring
  • Broken bones

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Multiple factors can contribute to motorcycle accidents, including negligence on the part of other drivers and those responsible for road and intersection maintenance. Some of the most prevalent causes are:

  • Failing to check blind spots when changing lanes
  • Lane-splitting where it is not allowed
  • Suddenly opening a car door into the path of a motorcyclist
  • Making sudden stops
  • Insufficient following distance when braking behind a motorcyclist
  • Failing to yield while making a left-hand turn at an intersection
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Driver inexperience
  • Defective motorcycles or other vehicles
  • Driving under the influence

Types of Damages You Can Recover

When you sue the driver responsible for the accident, you can seek damages. However, determining the appropriate amount can be challenging. Our team is dedicated to helping you calculate a fair value for your motorcycle accident claim. This value encompasses all of your damages combined, which can amount to a substantial sum if you have suffered severe injuries.

You may be entitled to recover damages that cover:

  • Medical expenses, including future costs
  • Lost wages, including future reduced income
  • Permanent disabilities and associated hardships
  • Physical pain and mental anguish

We are committed to maximizing your recovery amount to the best of our ability. While money cannot undo the past, it can facilitate your path forward, helping you regain a sense of normalcy and comfort. That's why we prioritize obtaining the highest compensation on your behalf.
