Causes of motorcycle accidents

Mobile Motorcycle Accident Lawyer (1)

At the root of many motorcycle accidents caused by drivers' negligence is the failure to keep a lookout for motorcycles and yield the right-of-way to them when appropriate. The following are just a few of the factors that can lead to a motorcycle crash:

  • Making a left-hand turn in the path of a motorcycle
  • Violating traffic laws in an intersection
  • Riding in poor road conditions, such as road debris, potholes, crumbling asphalt, or other road defects, and bad weather, such as ice, snow, or heavy rain, can lead to a motorcycle accident.
  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Dooring accidents
  • Motorists failing to yield the right-of-way to the motorcyclist
  • Crashing into the back end of a motorcycle

Motorcycle accident injuries

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that motorcyclists die 28 times more frequently than occupants of other vehicles in fatal crashes.  All drivers need to be aware and on the lookout for motorcycles, which are smaller and nimbler than other vehicles. Per the guidance from the NHTSA, Motorcyclists must also make sure that they are visible in traffic, wear DOT-compliant helmets to protect their heads, and always ride sober.

  • Road rash, cuts, and lacerations
  • Burn injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic amputation/limb loss
  • Bone fractures
  • Internal organ damage
  • Death

Did defective motorcycle equipment cause your accident?

Every kind of vehicle--even shiny new ones right off the dealer's lot--can have mechanical defects. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has a vehicle safety recall database, including motorcycle equipment and helmets. You can sign up to receive notifications about recalls at The following are a few examples of recent motorcycle equipment recalls:

  • Involution Sports IV2 HY808 Motorcycle Helmets
  • Triumph recall
  • Polaris Slingshot motorcycle recall
  • Indian Motorcycle Company of Scout, Scout Bobber, and Scout Sixty motorcycle recall
  • BMW of North America, BMW C600 Sport, C650 Sport and C650 GT scooter recall
  • Ducati defective brake pad recall
  • Kawasaki Motors Corp. Z900 ABS, Z900 RSABS, Z900 RS CAFE ABS motorcycle recall

Examples of common types of defective motorcycle equipment:

  • Brake failure
  • Defective handlebars and steering system
  • Fuel line defects
  • Tire failures can cause a blowout
  • Chain defects
  • Defective helmets

If defective motorcycle equipment causes your crash and injuries, you will need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to investigate the impact thoroughly. Proving that the faulty equipment caused the crash can be complicated. Our attorneys know how to pursue defective product cases, and we know how to hold those responsible for your injuries accountable for your losses.

Five smart reasons to hire a motorcycle lawyer after you have been injured in a crash

If you are wondering if it's worth hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer, here are a few ideas about why it makes a lot of sense.

1. We will investigate the motorcycle accident for you.

We gather evidence and determine the cause of the accident and who is at fault. We hold those responsible for your injuries accountable for your damages and losses.

2. We guide you through the process of pursuing compensation

Filing an accident injury claim can be complicated. We explain the process and keep you up to date on the progress of your case.

3. We review and evaluate the medical records of your injury.

You can trust our experienced personal injury lawyers and medical experts to evaluate the severity of your injury and consider how the injury will affect your life.

4. We know how to value your case and negotiate in your best interests.

The defendant's insurance company will have a team of lawyers representing them to ensure you recover as little compensation as possible. We negotiate for you to ensure you recover the compensation you need to cover your losses and any ongoing medical expenses related to the accident.

5. We will file a lawsuit and argue your case before a jury to improve your chances of recovering fair compensation for your injuries.

Some injury law firms only settle cases. We are prepared to litigate when necessary to protect your right to recover fair compensation for you. With more than 40 years of combined legal experience, we understand that sometimes insurance companies have preconceived ideas about motorcyclists. You can rely on Mezrano Law Firm to fight for you.

How much is my motorcycle accident injury worth?

Motorcycle accident injuries can often be far more severe than car accident injuries because motorcycle riders have little protection other than their helmet from the impact of a crash. When your injuries are more powerful and require medical attention and possibly a hospital stay, these elements are the ones that factor into determining the value of your case. It is essential to know that we cannot give you any accurate estimate of your case in the beginning before your injury has healed and before you know how it will impact your life and your ability to work.

If your case is successful, there are several types of damages you may be able to recover including:

  • Medical expenses related to the motorcycle accident
  • Wage losses for time away from work recovering from your injuries
  • Disability, diminished earning capacity because of permanent injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Punitive damages where appropriate
  • Other losses

Our experienced Mobile motorcycle accident lawyers are committed to fighting for the maximum compensation available to cover all your losses. We are ready to discuss your case in a free consultation today.
