While riding a motorcycle may be an enjoyable recreational activity, it carries with it great dangers. Motorcycle accidents are usually caused by someone other than the motorcycle operator. In light of the relatively small size of motorcycles, motorcycle collisions usually end with the operator sustaining severe injury. Often, these injuries are permanent and result in saddling victims with large medical bills.
Many accidents involving motorcycles occur at intersections. Other scenarios include: where a motorist’s line of sight is obstructed, where a motorist turns or pulls out into the path of a motorcycle and/or where a motorist strikes a motorcycle from behind because the motorist was unable to brake in time.
Motorcycle accidents can cause victims to sustain physical injuries, pain and suffering, emotional injuries and can cause victims to incur significant medical bills and lost wages. Even accidents that seem relatively small in nature can produce injuries with severe consequences.
