For many, motorcycles have become an appealing alternative to more traditional forms of transportation. However, motorcyclists sharing the road with other vehicles face substantial risks to their health and safety. Because of the size and relative lack of safety features on most motorcycles, even a minor motorcycle accident can result in devastating injuries that affect a motorcyclist physically, emotionally, and financially.
Sadly, when a motorcycle accident occurs, it is often because of the recklessness or negligence of others. In these situations, we at The Seegmiller Law Firm know how this can not only be devastating but also cause a sense of injustice for those injured in Riverside County. Fortunately, motorcyclists who suffer injuries in such accidents often do not have to shoulder the burdens and repercussions of the accident on their own, but rather can seek to hold the person who caused the accident accountable by taking legal action.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
While many people simply consider the reckless actions of other drivers when thinking about the causes of motor vehicle accidents, the unfortunate reality is that motorcyclists can be injured in accidents caused by a variety of different acts of negligence, such as:
- Drunk Driving
- Driver Error
- Mechanical Defect/Malfunction
- Highway Defects
When other parties act negligently, committing these dangerous acts or allowing these dangerous situations to occur, the consequences for motorcyclists can be traumatic, potentially causing catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord damage, brain injuries, broken bones, paralysis, and more, which may be difficult to recover from.
