Auto accidents are traumatic for everyone regardless of the vehicle being driven, however, a motorcycle accident is far worse and can be multiple times more severe given the lack of protection on a motorcycle. Even the highest quality safety gear and the highest adhered to safety precautions can’t fully protect a motorcycle rider from the dangers of being on the road.

Motorcycle riders don’t have seatbelts like automobiles do, and in an accident, they are more likely to be thrown off of their bike. Because motorcycles don’t have the protective barrier that cars have, what might have been a fender bender between two cars, could be a life threatening situation between a car and a motorcycle.

Most motorcycle riders are safe drivers
Although many people perceive riders who are involved in a motorcycle accident to be reckless and view their insurance claims as less than valid, that’s not usually the case. Motorcycle riders know they are not very well protected and are some of the safest drivers on the road, next to truck drivers.

If you drive a motorcycle, you know you need to be on high alert not just for your own driving, but for other drivers around you who may not see you.

The extensive injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident can be very serious, and are not always due to the fault of the rider.

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by circumstances beyond the control of the rider, and can include:

  • Wet or slippery roadways such as gravel or pavement with slick coating
  • Heavy rain, snow, or other adverse weather conditions
  • A car changing lanes without signaling
  • A car changing lanes too closely that does not see the motorcycle
  • A car coming to a sudden, unexpected stop in front of a motorcycle


Contact a motorcycle accident lawyer
If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, contact an attorney immediately to discuss the details of your case. You may have extensive injuries and medical bills that can extend further into the future than you know, and you’ll want to make sure you can get those bills covered even after you receive your settlement.

Additionally, if you’re injured, you may end up with lost wages from missing work, hospital visits, doctor appointments, surgeries, etc. The benefit to having a lawyer handle your case is that a lawyer will fight for you to get the compensation you deserve so that you don’t have to worry about whether your lost wages claim will be accepted.
