Causes of Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accident injuries are sometimes caused by the negligence of another driver. Motorists do not see or pay attention to motorcycles. This results in a wide variety of car-motorcycle and truck motorcycle collisons, including:
- Rear-end collsions with motorcycles
- Cars or trucks changing lanes into a motorcycle
- Vehicles making right turns from the center lane without seeing a motorcycle to their right
- Trucks or cars pushing motorcycles into a guard rail or off the road
- Car or truck drivers running a red light or stop sign without seeing the motorcycle
As you know, cars and trucks are heavier than motorcycles. Car and truck drivers are protected by the interior of the car or truck, including airbags and seatbelts. Motorcycles are relatively lightweight. Bikers are very vulnerable, even with proper clothing and helmets. Very serious, even catastrophic, injuries result from motorcycle accidents. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are also often fatal.
