The Most Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are each different and inflict different traumas on the victims. Many motorcycle accidents tend to occur due to similar sets of circumstances, however. If you or a loved one enjoys riding, it is important to know how these accidents can happen.
Turning Accidents - Many motorcycle accidents happen during the course of turns. Frequently, vehicle drivers make left turns in front of motorcyclists because they do not see the riders or are not paying attention to oncoming traffic. Drivers might also turn across a roadway into the path of a motorcyclist. These types of accidents often result in severe impacts that can lead to serious injuries.
Head-On Accidents - Another common kind of motorcycle accident is a head-on accident. Head-on accidents prove to be the most deadly regardless of the kind of vehicles involved, but they are particularly dangerous for motorcyclists. While a passenger vehicle might protect occupants from serious injury during a head-on impact, motorcyclists are completely exposed. Too often, the victims of fatal head-on crashes are motorcyclists.
Rear-End Accidents - Rear-end accidents also can cause greater injury to motorcyclists than to people in passenger vehicles. When riders are struck from behind, they might fly over the front of the motorcycle, leaving them at risk for the motorcycle to fall on top of him. Motorcyclists can also sustain serious injuries in rear-end accidents due to the jolting motion of the impact.
T-Bone Accidents / Side-Impact Accidents- T-bone accidents also commonly involve motorcyclists. Like turning accidents, these collisions often occur because drivers at the intersection do not see motorcyclists who have the right-of-way. When a motorcyclist is involved in a T-bone crash, resulting injuries can be severe.
It is important to speak with an experienced a personal injury attorney after you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident.
