Arkansas Motorcycle Accident Information
Motorcycle accidents can be some of the most devastating for riders due to their lack of protection in a crash. Riders can be thrown to the pavement, hit other vehicles or objects, or have their bikes flip on top of them, crushing their knees, feet, legs, backs, and hips. In an accident between a motorcyclist and another motor vehicle driver, the biker is more likely to be seriously hurt, even at slower speeds.
Motorcycle accidents can cause injuries ranging from lacerations and road rash to serious sprains, concussions, broken bones, internal bleeding, and catastrophic injuries affecting the brain and spine. Medical expenses can spiral out of control, from ambulance transport and hospitalization to further outpatient care, physical therapy, and more. In the worst cases, you may require multiple surgeries or face a future with permanent disabilities.
Having to deal with all of the legal details of an injury claim can become an impossible task while recovering from your injuries. The insurance company that handles your claim will most likely offer an initial settlement that is far below the amount you will ultimately need to handle all of your expenses and damages. Accepting such an offer to allay your mounting expenses and lost wages would be a mistake. At such a time, you need the legal knowledge and services of an aggressive attorney who will fight for what is in your best interests as opposed to the insurance company’s.
Motorcycle Accident Causes
One of the most common reasons for a motorcycle accident is that the other driver failed to see the motorcyclist. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are not always afforded the same respect on the highway as other motor vehicles.
Motorcycle accidents can occur through negligence or recklessness in many ways, such as:
- Drivers making left turns in front of a motorcycle that they failed to see
- Drivers failing to see a motorcyclist in their blind spot
- A driver or passenger opening their car door into the path of an oncoming motorcyclist
- Drivers who are texting, talking on cell phones, or otherwise distracted
- Drivers who roll through stop signs or ignore traffic signals
- Drunk or drug-impaired drivers
- Drivers speeding
An additional source of negligence and liability in a motorcycle accident can be the manufacturers of these bikes or their component parts. If a defect or safety issues caused or contributed to your crash, part of your recovery may be a convincing product liability claim
