Accidents Involving Motorcycle vs. Car
Motorcycles and cars share the road every day. Inevitably, accidents involving a motorcycle vs. a car happen. A motorcycle is an open vehicle and motorcyclists are exposed to the elements, as well as a higher risk for injuries or fatality in an accident.
If a driver of a car and a motorcyclist are both paying attention and following the law, the likelihood of an accident is minimized. However, as is often the case, it only takes one person’s negligence to wreak havoc and seriously injure another.
If you or a loved one has suffered from serious injuries while riding a motorcycle, contact Morales Injury Law to discuss your road to recovery, both physically and financially.
A driver, failing to use due care and caution when sharing the road with a motorcyclist, is one of the most common causes of accidents involving motorcycles. In fact, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that other drivers are at fault for more than 50% of all accidents involving motorcycles.
Whether you or a loved motorcyclist were injured by a driver pulling out in front of you, driving under the influence, failing to yield to your right of way, failing to adequately monitor their blind spot, or any other negligent act, contact Morales Injury Law to discuss your options for recovery.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Due to their design, Motorcycles simply do not protect their operators the way a car does. There are no airbags, seatbelts, rollover protection, etc.
Instead, a motorcycle operator is exposed, with only a helmet and the clothes on their back as protection. This lack of protection often results in motorcycle operators suffering more serious injuries, such as:
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Fractured bones
- Road Rash
As a motorcyclist, if you or someone you know has been injured by the acts of another, contact Morales Injury Law today. Our team will walk you through the steps to recovery and maximize your financial recovery.
