Consequences of Motorcycle Accidents

Although they are nationally considered a symbol of speed, freedom and youth, the truth is that motorcycles are one of the most dangerous of all modes of transportation. Due to their small size in comparison to the other vehicles on the road such as cars and trucks, and their general lack of safety features, motorcycles tend to leave their operators vulnerable to the most dangerous of aspects of driving. For this reason, accidents that involve motorcycles can lead to some of the most devastating catastrophic injuries possible, whether spinal injuries, brain injuries or neck injuries.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, it is absolutely imperative that you do not hesitate to secure the legal representation that you deserve from a Kansas City motorcycle accident lawyer.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

There is a common misconception that many motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence of riders themselves. While this is not always untrue, the truth of the matter is that the causes of motorcycle accidents are nearly as varied as their effects. In fact, it has been shown that a significant portion of motorcycle accidents are the result of other negligent motorists on the roadways. The term "driver negligence" can be used to describe any sort of act that violates traffic laws and puts motorcyclists at risk.

Some of the most common forms of driver negligence that lead to motorcycle accidents include:

Not all motorcycle accidents are the result of driver negligence, however. For example, a defective or poorly designed motorcycle or motorcycle part could cause a rider to lose control of their vehicle, resulting in injury. Conversely, some collisions are the result of dangerous road conditions like potholes, thereby exposing the local government agency responsible for maintaining the road to liability for the crash. Your attorney will thoroughly investigate the cause of your crash and help to ensure all responsible parties are held accountable.
