Motorcycle Accident Causes & Injuries

The common causes of motorcycle accidents include drunk driving, speeding, and distracted driving. In many cases, the motorcyclist is not the one who is at-fault for their crash. Rather the mistakes and negligence of another motorist put them in unfair danger.

Motorcycle accidents can result in the following injuries and more:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Skull fractures
  • Dental cracks
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Road rash or friction burns
  • Permanent disfigurement

Severe injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident often require extensive medical treatment to alleviate or lessen. Surgery, physical therapy, and occupational therapies are commonly prescribed for motorcycle accident survivors. The cost of these treatments can be steep, ranging into the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. Do not let those costs become your own responsibility when the liable party’s insurance company should be paying for them.

Insurance Companies Put Unfair Blame on Motorcyclists

You should expect an uphill battle when dealing with an opposing insurance company after a motorcycle accident. Insurers love to play with the idea that motorcyclists are reckless by nature, which, according to this weakly-constructed defense strategy, contributes to their chances of getting into a crash. Essentially, an insurance company or their defense attorneys will say that you must have been doing something reckless or negligent at the time of your crash since you are a motorcyclist who “craves thrills.”

Although this argument might seem ridiculous, you would be surprised by how many judges and juries can be convinced by it. You should work with your attorney early to devise a strategy that prepares for and counters this unfair bias against motorcyclists.

There are a couple of pieces of proof you can use for your counterargument:

  • Your clean driving record
  • Your criminal record with no DUIs
  • Pictures of you wearing protective gear after your crash

If your helmet has a camera attached, then be sure to review the footage with your attorney, too. Helmet cams are often essential in motorcycle accident plaintiff claims to prove liability.
