The Devastating Consequences Of Motorcycle Collisions
For motorcycle enthusiasts, there is nothing quite as invigorating as the thrill of the open road. Unfortunately, this thrill is often destroyed by the actions and negligence of other motorists who simply do not watch out for motorcyclists. Too often, motorcycle collisions result from the negligence of other drivers, and the consequences can be devastating for motorcyclists and their passengers. Maloney-Lyons offers the following advice for motorcycle accident victims.
Some of the most deadly motorcycle collisions are the result of head-on collisions with other vehicles. In fact, in 78 percent of motorcycle accidents that occur with another vehicle, the motorcyclist is hit from the front. Tragically, head-on collisions with other vehicles are often fatal to motorcyclists.
Many other situations can pose significant dangers to motorcyclists as well, including:
- Cars making left hand turns
- Motorcycle lane splitting
- Motorcyclists who speed or drive under the influence
- Road hazards
- Inclement weather
All of these situations represent real dangers to motorcyclists. Motorcycle collisions often result, and due to the vulnerability and smaller size of the motorcycle, motorcyclists often suffer the most severe consequences.
