Motorcycle accidents are known to cause devastating and catastrophic injuries that can alter your life forever. Injuries such as spinal cord injury, severe burns, amputation and more can cause you to suffer consequences such as the inability to work, disability and emotional trauma. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, you don’t have to go through the aftermath alone.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists face many dangers and challenges while out on the road. Many of these challenges can result in a motorcycle accident that causes severe injury or death. The most common causes of these accidents include:

  • Car doors: When a driver opens a door after parking their car, a motorcycle could be in their path, resulting in a severe accident.
  • Speeding: Speeding is a leading cause of all vehicle accidents, including motorcycle accidents. The faster a vehicle goes, the lower your ability to slow down and react to the dangers ahead.
  • Driving while under the influence: Vehicles being driven by individuals under the influence are one of the top causes of accidents on the road. For motorcyclists, being hit by a drunk driver can have serious consequences.
  • Improper lane usage: Lane changes that happen too fast or driving between two lanes can cause accidents due to improper lane usage.

Other causes such as inexperienced drivers, right of way errors and dangerous road conditions also cause motorcycle accidents. However, driver negligence when it comes to sharing the road with motorcyclists causes more devastating accidents each year.

Not Your Fault: Overcome Motorcycle Prejudice With Us

Did you know that prejudice often exists against motorcycle riders? It’s true. When injuries occur, they automatically assume that the accident was the motorcyclist’s fault. They often believe that the motorcyclist was speeding, incorrectly weaving through traffic or driving recklessly, even if this couldn’t be farther from the truth.

At AKD Law, we specialize in removing that prejudice, giving you the case you deserve. We work hard to represent the facts by being clear and using state-of-the-art technology to create animations, accident reconstructions and other visual displays to accurately present your case to the jury. With us, you’ll have a case built specifically for you and your needs.

Moreover, understanding the intricacies of motorcycle accidents is crucial. For instance, many assume that the motorcyclist is at fault, but our detailed analysis on motorcyclist assumption of fault sheds light on this misconception. Additionally, the importance of wearing a helmet cannot be overstated, and our insights on motorcycle helmet compensation highlight the legal implications.

For a comprehensive understanding, you can explore our motorcycle accident category, which provides a wealth of information. Beyond this, AKD Law is deeply involved in community aid and offers guidance on various medical issues that arise post-accidents.

No one deserves motorcycle accident prejudice. Let us help you overcome it with our experience and attention to detail. Our attorneys have spent years achieving the best result for motorcyclists and their families who have been victims of devastating motorcycle accidents.
