Motorcycle accidents are the most common type of personal injury accidents.
Motorcycle injury accidents are the second most common type of personal injury accidents, but are often far more severe than car accidents.
Fault can normally be proven, if the other driver
- Hits you from the rear
- Crosses over the centre line in a head on collisio
- Runs a red light
- Runs a stop sign, or
- Changes lanes suddenly into your vehicle
In cases where the other driver is making a left turn at a yellow light, fault will usually be disputed, but can still be proven, if witnesses confirm that you had no time to stop.
What To Do If Injured In A Motorcycle Crash
In all but rear-end collisions, it is important to secure witness names and telephone numbers to prove the other driver’s fault.
Don’t rely on the police, to provide you with witness contact information, as they are not permitted to do so.
Be sure to obtain the witness telephone numbers yourself.
For future reference, you can download our Motor Vehicle Accident Checklist, and keep it in your car with a pen handy, in case of emergency.
Even if the accident was not your fault, your damages can be reduced if you were not wearing a certified helmet at the time of the collision. As such, be sure to put one on before you ride.
Liability assessment can also affected by such considerations as alcohol or cell phone use. Be sure, of course, never to drink and ride, or touch your cell phone when riding.
Motor cycle tires are more of an issue in motor cycle accidents than car accidents. Make sure that your tires are frequently checked and appropriate for road conditions.
The position in your lane of travel is also an issue in motor cycle accidents. As a general rule, the left side or centre of the lane is the preferred position.
