Common Motorcycle Accident Causes
At Bressman Law, our firm has helped countless motorcycle victims get fair compensation for their injuries. Those cases have involved injuries caused by a variety of factors.
Drivers who are in a hurry or those not paying attention are dangers on the road for many vehicles, especially motorcycles. Careless drivers often do not see motorcyclists, leading to serious accidents and injuries.
Accidents may occur when drivers fail to see motorcycles:
- Making turns
- Pulling out of a driveways
- Making lane changes
- Entering or exiting a highway on-ramp or street
- Moving out of a parking space or parking lot
Hazardous Road Conditions
Careless actions or failure to take actions to prevent dangerous conditions on the road often lead to motorcycle crashes. Sometimes, objects left in the highway by road crews or items that have fallen off other vehicles because the cargo was not properly secured can lead to motorcycle accidents. Low-speed accidents that involve an object in the road can lead to devastating motorcycle crashes because these types of vehicles do not have anything to shield drivers from impact.
Defective Motorcycles or Faulty Parts
Poorly assembled motorcycles or those built with a faulty part can lead to serious accidents. In these instances, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer or supplier. Due to the nature of these suits, they are very complicated and often can benefit from the support of a legal professional.
In these types of cases, our firm may:
- Consult experts to reconstruct accident scenes and analyze their findings.
- Review other similar types of motorcycle accidents.
- Look for product recalls.
- Review maintenance and product records.

Serious Injuries as a Result of a Motorcycle Accident
Due to the little protection a motorcycle provides, a motorcycle crash victim often sustains worse injuries than someone operating a car and these can lead to serious, life-altering injuries, including:
- Brain and spinal cord injuries: The force and impact of a motorcycle accident can lead to brain and spinal cord injuries, which may cause partial, temporary, or permanent paralysis, cognitive problems, or premature death.
- Nerve damage: Nerve damage can lead to chronic pain, numbness, weakness, muscle atrophy, and paralysis.
- Joint injuries: The lack of protection and impact can force a motorcyclist to be thrown from a bike, resulting in severe joint injuries that can result in disfigurements and temporary or permanent disabilities.
In addition to serious physical injuries, a motorcycle accident can lead to serious psychological trauma and emotional distress for the victim. Since these conditions can impede physical recovery, victims and their families also should seek treatment to address these issues.
At Bressman Law, we understand that no two cases are alike. If you or someone you love suffered a type of motorcycle injury not listed here, you should still reach out to us for help. Call us at 877-538-1116 to get a free case consultation.
