This lack of driver awareness can lead to some very serious motorcycle accidents with injuries such as:

  • Spinal injuries

Types of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to a wide range of different accident scenarios. Although all types of motorcycle accidents can be devastating for motorcyclists who are mismatched against a heavy, powerful car or commercial vehicle, there are a few distinct accident scenarios that are the most common.

Rear-end collisions can occur quite easily when vehicles, for whatever reason, collide with motorcycles after a failure to stop behind them. Motorcycles also fit nicely into the blind spot for many drivers, which can lead to lane change collisions with motorcyclists.

Other complications, such as obstacles put up by property owners or poorly-maintained construction projects, can cause big problems for bikers. Perhaps the most common type of motorcycle accident, however, occurs when drivers simply do not see the motorcyclist.

Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are well-known for the lack of protection they provide to drivers, especially in the event of a motorcycle accident. The types of injuries motorcyclists are at risk of sustaining in accidents with other vehicles such as cars, trucks or other obstructions can range greatly depending on the particulars of the incident. Motorcyclists who are involved in an accident commonly suffer serious head injuries, paralysis, severed limbs, burn injuries and more.

The law protects motorcycle accident victims from the responsibility of paying any costs associated with injuries they were not responsible for causing. Key factors such as the speeds of vehicles at the point of impact, the angle of the impact as well as the type of vehicles involved can play an instrumental role in determining the extent of injuries to a motorcyclist who is almost always on the losing end of any accident.

Low Speeds vs. High Speeds

At low speeds such as those traveled in city streets or high-traffic situations, motorcyclists can suffer any number of injuries including:

At high speeds, however, the injuries motorcyclists can sustain are far more serious. Motorcyclists who are involved in high-speed accidents, whether with other vehicles or in a single-bike accident, may suffer:

  • Road-rash burn injuries
  • Severed limbs & extremities
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful Death

Even at low speeds, collisions with extra-heavy trucks and other commercial vehicles can increase the likelihood for the most serious types of motorcycle injuries as well.
