What are the most common types of motorcycle accidents?

There are a lot of things, from weather to traffic, that can spoil a good day's ride. But nothing ends it like an accident. There are few types of motorcycle accidents from which a driver and passenger can walk away whole, so prevention matters even more than it does for car and truck drivers.

What is the most common type of motorcycle accident?

The most likely crash, and one of the most likely fatal crashes, involves a driver turning left in front of a biker. The only way to see this coming is ahead of time, so bikers should always be on the lookout for cars nearby that are suddenly changing speed, likely to change lanes or otherwise get in a motorcycle's path.

What is the best way to stop other types of accidents, like rear hits and lane changes?

If bikers cannot avoid risky areas, it is best to position other cars between a bike and potential threats. Stay near cars that are moving predictably and come to a stop near other stopped vehicles so it is less likely a car will hit at a high speed.

What are some common accidents that do not involve other cars?

Slippery roads or loose gravel are hazards, especially where bikes need to turn sharply or enter a blind curve. Some loose objects on the road may be a trucker's liability in the case of a related accident.

What do I do if I am hit by a car or truck while biking?

It is often helpful to discuss accidents with an attorney to discuss a possible claim for damages to help recover after a motorcycle accident. Damages may include compensation for medical expenses as well as other related expenses.
