Common Motorcycle Accidents

motorcycle_accidentMotorcycle riders are more vulnerable to the forces of a motor vehicle accident than any other kind of operator, simply due to the physics involved. Motorcycles are not as easily seen and offer little protection from the forces of an accident. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you need an experienced New York motorcycle accident lawyer who can help you get the compensation you are entitled to.

3 Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents

  1. A Car Turns Left In Front of You:  This is the most common motorcycle accident, so it is important to see it coming. Look for gaps in traffic near an intersection that could allow a car through unexpectedly.
  2. Gravel on a Blind Corner:  Maintain extra caution any time you can’t see what’s ahead. Slow down into the beginning of a blind corner and enter wide to get the best view.
  3. A Car Changes Lanes Into You:  Never ride in a driver’s blind spot. Make sure drivers can see you by checking to see their face in their rear view mirror. Follow the flow of traffic so you aren’t the wild card.
