Anyone who shares the road has a duty to avoid endangering the lives of others, meaning that drivers should be alert and attentive at all times.

Common Motorcycle Accident Causes

The most common causes of motorcycle collisions include:

  • Head-on collisions
  • Cars making left-hand turns into a motorcycle
  • Motorcycle lane-splitting

Motorcycle accidents can also be caused by intoxication, speeding, distraction, or other negligent actions. These accidents can result in significant injury, as motorcycles are much smaller and less protected than automobiles. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle collision caused by driver negligence, we want to ensure that you can find the financial support you need to cover your medical bills and help you move forward.

What if my accident wasn’t caused by another driver?

The government entity responsible for the maintenance of public roadways have a duty to ensure that surfaces are safe for drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists. Due to the small size, high speeds, and minimal protection that motorcycles afford, riders are perhaps at the highest risk for accidents caused by unmaintained roads.
 
If a road hazard caused an accident that resulted in your injury, our firm will utilize our resources to thoroughly investigate the hazard and determine whether a government agency was negligent. Our Fairfield personal injury attorney can build a personalized and comprehensive case to aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf and to hold the government accountable for its failure to ensure the safety of our streets.

Motorcycle Accidents & Injuries

California is a beautiful state with great weather and extensive roads. California is the state with the most roads listed in MotorcycleRoads.com’s “Top 100 Motorcycle Roads.” While this is great news for motorcyclists who yearn for the open road on a sunny day, it increases the chances of motorcycle accidents merely because riding is so popular in the state. Motorcycle accidents are typically more severe than other motor accidents due to the nature of riding a motorcycle. Unlike the typical car or truck, there’s no metal protecting the rider from external elements. Include that with the average motorcyclists tendency to value freedom over safety and a willingness to use highways and there is a high likelihood of serious motorcycle injuries in the case of a collision. Because motorcycle accidents are susceptible to much more serious injuries, make sure to contact an accident attorney immediately.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is a part of the US Department of Transportation that is responsible for keeping our roads safe. This agency has found that a motorcyclist is 800% more likely to be injured and 37 times more likely to die in a car collision than the driver or passenger of a car.

Common Injuries

Many motorcycle injuries occur to the legs and feet of the riders. When riders aren’t wearing the proper gear, such as long pants and appropriate shoes, this can result in significant injuries. Additionally, head and neck injuries are common among motorcyclists. These injuries can be extremely serious and even lead to death. Other injuries include:

  • Loss of limb
  • Coma
  • Broken bones
  • Torn ligaments
  • Internal bleeding
  • Paralysis
  • Brain damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

If you have experience any type of motorcycle injury, it’s best to speak to an accident lawyer who knows what legal actions are best to take.

Proper Motorcycle Gear

Unfortunately, some collisions are not preventable. It’s extremely important to be wearing the appropriate gear in the case an accident does occur. Appropriate gear includes:

  • Helmet – For obvious reasons, wearing a quality helmet is extremely important. Many motorcyclists value their freedom and don’t want to feel at all restricted. Perhaps it is better to be slightly inconvenienced than to be dead or at least without a face. Wearing a full-face helmet less than 5 years old is ideal. The glue that holds the helmet together deteriorates over time. Not much use wearing a helmet that’ll fall apart during a collision!
  • Gloves – It is human instinct to put one’s hands out when anticipating harm. Many motorcyclists are projected into the air and use their hands to soften their fall. If you aren’t wearing heavy-duty leather gloves, you may break fingers, tear skin, or even lose a finger.
  • Jacket – For similar reasons as why it’s important to wear quality gloves, a good motorcycle jacket is vital. Motorcycle collisions often result in the rider(s) sliding down the pavement, which can act as sandpaper to the skin. While broken bones are painful, having your skin removed is excessive and worst, is hard to recover from. It’s important to have a motorcycle-specific jacket. A normal leather jacket will not provide the same protection as those specifically made to protect an individual traveling at fast speeds and indurring potentially high impact.
  • Boots – A good pair of boots not only protects your fragile feet and ankle bones in the case of a crash, but they can decrease the likelihood of a crash in the first place. A high-quality pair of boots that is resistant to oil and with a good grip and ankle support can support the full weight of a heavy motorcycle as well as the riders. This is extremely valuable when operating in slippery or uncertain conditions.

Though proper gear is one component of motorcycle riding, it’s not a guarantee of safety. Accidents will still occur and if you’ve been injured from a motorcycle collision, seek legal advice from an experienced motorcycle accident attorney.

Motorcycle Accident Causes

There are many reasons motorcycles are involved in collisions with cars. Some of the most commons ones are:

  1. Not being seen – one of the most common reasons car drivers give to explain why a crash occurred with a motorcyclist is simply not seeing them. Car drivers aren’t typically looking out for motorcyclists so even if they do come into their field of vision, they’re less likely to register them than another car. Not being seen is an obvious problem for motorcyclists and motorcycles should be more proactive in their efforts of ensuring they are seen.
  2. Poor estimation of speed – even if a driver does see the motorcyclist on the road, there is another obstacle in being able to recognize the speed and anticipate the action of the motorcycle. Research from Texas Tech University suggests that the human brain is worse at accurately perceiving small objects that are relatively close than large objects that are far away. This means that drivers aren’t good at telling how fast a motorcycle is going or what the motorcycle is likely to do next. This makes a collision more likely to occur.
  3. Dangerous conditions – motorcycles have fewer safety features than full-sized cars. They are more vulnerable on poorly maintained roads as there is just one axel. While the other three wheels may be able to compensate when one hits a serious pothole or patch of ice, motorcycles aren’t so lucky.
  4. Faulty equipment – for reasons similar to dangerous conditions, any problems with the bike can be disastrous. A single flat tire is much more serious when there’s only one other tire! Other aspects of the motorcycle can fail, due to negligence on the part of the manufacturer, distributor, or mechanic. If you’ve suffered a motorcycle injury due to a product or mechanical defect, it’s crucial you speak to a highly experienced accident lawyer specialized in motorcycle accidents.

    This is my second time hiring Mr. Choyce for my son, who was charged with a criminal act. Both times that I hired Mr. Choyce, I was very impressed with his knowledge of the law, his professionalism, and the fact that he was relatable. He is trustworthy, tells you the truth about what you are facing. He is organized, he is a very good listener, came up with strategies that were appealing.I can’t say enough good about Mr. Choyce! I knew that he was going to give my son’s case everything he had, and he did!

    Hiring the Choyce Law Firm was the best decision I made while trying to decide what to do after getting charged with a 3rd DUI. I tried to use a lawyer that I had previously used when in trouble with the law, he was near retirement and wasn’t able to give my case the attention I was looking for understanding that I was facing jail time. When contacting Mr Choyce we discussed my case and he told me he could help, he even knew my previous attorney. Mr Choyce was aggressive in fighting my case with filing motions on my behalf an trying to get my case dismissed, I was very pleased that he was not just looking to get the first deal the D.A. offered but was aggressively trying to win my case. Although we were not able to get the dismissal we were looking for he was able to keep me out of jail an I was able to serve my sentence on the EHD Program, which allowed me to keep my job an that was very important to me. Mr Choyce also handled a second case for me, I was charged with driving on a suspended license and no registration. Once again Mr Choyce was aggressive with this case and took it to trail an was able to get a not guilty verdict, which saved me a great deal of money in fines that would be pending with a guilty verdict. Overall hiring Mr Choyce and his team was the best decision I made, he provided great service at a respectable rate, an explained things as they were happening and with the charges I was facing I was very happy with the outcome of my cases that he handled. I would strongly recommend Mr Choyce and his team to anyone I know that needs legal representation he knows the law and will provide you with the best service you could hope for form a lawyer that wants to win.

    “This is my second time using Mr. Choyce, and I would choose no one other than him. Both times that I hired him, it was for my son, and they were very serious cases. Mr. Choyce is smart, professional, practical, and relatable. He is a serious person, who listens, speaks in laymens terms, so that you understand what is going on. Not like some that I have experience, who talk over you, and dont take the time to really answer your questions.The second case got very close to going to trial, however, I was confident that I had the best of the best representing my son. Thank God that after willing to go to trial, we got a deal that, I think was a win win.I would definitely, without a question, hire Mr. Choyce again!”
