Types of Motorcycle Accidents

Have you been harmed in a negligence-based motorcycle accident?

Motorcycle accidents are notorious for the damage they can inflict on riders and their passengers due to the exposed nature of this form of transportation. Unlike the occupants of a car or truck, motorcyclists have no protection from physical harm other than a helmet and clothing. That means injuries can be much more serious and often life-threatening. If you've been hurt or have lost a loved one in a negligence-based motorcycle accident, you will need the legal assistance of a competent personal injury attorney to get the compensation you need and deserve. Operating in and around Farmington Hills, Abrahams Law provides highly-rated legal representation for these types of accidents.

Common Motorcycle Accidents

Some of the most frequent motorcycle accidents are those involving bikes and cars. Motorists often fail to see motorcyclists for various reasons. These can include blind spots, the fact that motorcycles are much smaller than vehicles, and negative psychology on the part of motorists who refuse to grant road space or just plain ignore motorcycles. According to various experts on motorcycle safety and accidents, including the website rideapart.com, one of the most common types of these car-motorcycle accidents involves a car making a left-hand turn. In turning, the car will hit the motorcyclist as he or she is heading through the intersection, passing the car, or coming up on the car.

Other accidents commonly occur when a car in another lane moves into the lane traveled by the motorcyclist. This may occur because the motorist fails to gauge the speed of the motorcyclist or merely fails to see him. At other times, a motorcyclist may be slowing down or even stopped and get hit from behind by a motorist who is inattentive, distracted, or traveling too fast to stop in time.

Another common type of motorcyclist accident occurs when motorcyclists engage in lane-splitting. Cars in front of a motorcyclist may not see it coming up behind them. Any sudden veering by either the motorist of the motorcyclist can result in a collision.
