How Motorcycle Accidents Happen
Motorcycle riders are usually very skilled drivers. They are constantly checking the roadways for obstacles and other vehicles. Unfortunately, other drivers are not always so careful and cause accidents because of their negligence and carelessness. Ms. Tyler has represented motorcycle riders who were injured because the driver of another vehicle:
- Changed lanes without signaling
- Rear-ended the motorcycle
- Forced the motorcycle driver off the road
- Made a right turn without stopping, turning into the path of a motorcycle
- Drove erratically because he or she was drunk
Drivers of cars and trucks often say that they did not see the motorcycle before an accident. This is not an excuse; drivers of other vehicles are required to look out for others and be vigilant while on the road. When they do not exercise this level of care and cause injuries, victims may be able to obtain compensation for lost past and future wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and other costs and damages resulting from an accident.
