4 Major Motorcycle Accidents

Riding a motorcycle is fun. Motorcycles are beautiful vehicles that allow you to fell all the elements while you ride through cities, towns, and rural countries. Motorcycles require more skill and attention than driving a regular car because a motorcycle does not have the armor of a car. A motorcycle makes up for not having an armor due to its agility, quick ability to stop, and ability to swerve. Those who ride know that they have to develop a sixth sense while they drive because cars are not used to seeing them on the road. They also have to be extra aware of their surroundings. If the road looks a particular way or if the wind picks, motorcycle drivers need to be sensitive to these changes in order to ride their bikes with the utmost safety.

Our Motorcycle Accident Attorneys at The Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno in San Diego understand that not everyone respects a motorcycle driver. In fact, we know that when accidents happen, people will try to blame the motorcyclists because they chose to ride something riskier than a regular car. We know that that is simply not true. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of some other vehicle then you deserve just as much compensation or protection as if it were another car.

Here are 4 major types of motorcycle accidents that plague our streets. Knowing about these types of accidents can keep drivers aware:

  • Turning Left: Cars turning left are the main reason for motorcycle accidents. Maybe its because the cars can’t see the motorcycles or there’s more of a blind spot, but motorcyclist is more likely to be hit this way than any other way. Since it is more of a head-on or side collision the rider is more likely to experience minor to major injury. As always, in any motorcycle accident, there is a real chance of death more so than any other motorized vehicle.
  • Lane Splitting: Even though this behavior is now legal in California, does not mean that these kinds of accidents happen any less. Watch out for anyone riding down the middle or white lane.
  • Drunk Driving: If cars can’t see motorcyclists when they are sober then how can they see you while they are intoxicated?
  • Hit From Behind: One of the reasons why California allowed lane splitting is because motorcycles were getting hit from behind while standing in traffic. Lane splitting allowed motorcycles to get out of the way lawfully. A motorcycle getting hit from the back is more likely to experience a fatality.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident then you need to seek legal representation. We will make sure that insurance companies are taking you seriously. Don’t be bullied because you chose to ride something that takes bravery and skill.
