Motorcyclists love the Peach State for its open roads and diverse landscapes. Whether it’s a spin through Columbus’ city streets or a coastal cruise further east, motorcycle rides through Georgia are often full of fun and great sights. However, they can end in disaster in an instant.
While motorcycles provide a fun and fuel efficient mode of transportation, motorcyclists face much more significant risks of being in a collision and suffering life-changing injuries or fatalities than automobile drivers.
There are approximately fifty thousand motorcycle accidents annually in the U.S. resulting in thousands of fatalities and tens of thousands of serious injuries.
Motorcycles are inherently more dangerous because they lack the basic safety features and stability of cars, trucks and SUVs. Columbus motor vehicle accidents that result in vehicle ejections are among the most deadly of all passenger vehicle accidents, but virtually every motorcycle accident essentially results in a vehicle ejection because there is no physical frame or body to protect a motorcyclist when he or she is involved in a collision.
Many motorcycle accidents in Columbus occur because motorcyclists simply have no time to safely react to driving errors by other motorists. Handling limitations, lack of stability and the complete absence of safety equipment means that Columbus motorcycle accidents frequently result in debilitating injuries with permanent life changes effects.
The experienced Columbus motorcycle accident attorneys at Montlick have been seeking compensation for motorcycle injury victims since our law firm was founded 39 years ago.
If you were injured by a negligent driver of a vehicle who was drunk, distracted, drowsy or otherwise driving unsafely, you may have a right to seek compensation for your injuries.
What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in Columbus?
Ready to Fight for You
Motorcycles lack the crashworthiness of passenger cars, trucks and SUVs so Columbus motorcycle collisions often involve devastating injuries that may significantly alter the course of one’s life. Data from the NHTSA indicates that a motorcyclist has a twentyfold greater risk of being involved in an accident when compared to drivers of four wheeled motor vehicles.
Motorcycles not only fail to offer the structural protection and other safety features of other motor vehicles, but they are much harder for other drivers to see because of their relatively diminutive size. Although data indicates that motorcycle driver inexperience contributes to many Columbus motorcycle accidents, this is partly because the design of motorcycles makes them extremely unstable so that there is virtually no margin for error when motorcyclists must engage in sudden braking or hard steering maneuvers.
A few common causes of motorcycle accidents in Columbus include:
- Accidents caused by drivers that do not see motorcycles because they fail to check blind spots or engage in distracting activities.
- Collisions with drunk drivers
- Lane change collisions where drivers fail to check for the presence of motorcycles
- Obstructions, pavement defects and other roadway hazards
- Rear end collisions with motorcycles by speeding or inattentive drivers
- Left turn motorcycle accidents by distracted or inattentive motorists
- Defective bikes that malfunction resulting in loss of control or impaired braking ability
While most motorcycle accidents in Columbus pose a risk of serious injuries, riders not wearing a motorcycle helmet are particularly at risk. Although state law requires all motorcyclists to wear helmets, some Columbus motorcycle riders do not comply with the mandatory helmet law. This can be a tragic and fatal decision because forty percent of those who die in motorcycle accidents are not wearing helmets. Those who survive a motorcycle accident when not wearing a motorcycle helmet often suffer devastating head injuries that permanently impair mental functioning, mobility and sensation.
Our Columbus motorcycle accident attorneys understand that these types of severe head injuries can prevent an accident victim from engaging in one’s occupation, taking care of one’s family or even taking responsibility for one’s one basic daily needs.
If you are involved in a Columbus motorcycle accident when you are not wearing a helmet, it may also be more difficult to recover the full measure of compensation for your injuries. Insurance companies frequently argue that the injury victim caused or contributed to a motorcycle collision to shift responsibility for the collision to the motorcycle rider at least to some degree. If you suffer a serious head injury in a Columbus motorcycle accident, your recovery may be reduced because the head injuries may be determined to be partially caused by your failure to wear a helmet.
