Types of Motorcycle Accidents

While a motorcycle accident can occur at any time and for just about any reason, there are some types of motorcycle accidents that are more common than others. Left-hand turns made by other drivers on the road are the most common type of motorcycle accident in North Bay. This happens in intersections when a car is turning left and does not see a motorcyclist traveling straight to ride through the same intersection.

Drivers of cars and other vehicles sometimes simply are not accustomed to looking for smaller motorcycles, or they simply just do not see them. For the same reasons, cars changing lanes is another very common type of motorcycle accident. The driver of the car simply does not see the motorcycle, even after checking their blind spots, and so they change lanes and drive right into the motorcycle.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents can be so much more severe than injuries sustained during other types of car accidents. An accident that would be considered a minor fender bender in any other instance could be fatal when a motorcycle is involved.

It is important to know the signs of the most common injuries, as some may not present themselves until days or weeks later. The legs and feet are most likely to be injured in a motorcycle accident. This is because not only are they completely exposed, but they are the only part of the body that is not in line with the motorcycle. mAs such, they are the closest body part to other vehicles. Even if there is no extreme pain immediately after the accident, treatment should still be sought if there is any tenderness.

Head injuries are another common injury among motorcyclists, even when they are wearing a helmet. Most often, head injuries are a result of the motorcyclist being thrown from their bike and landing on the pavement or other vehicles, with their head being thrown against those objects. These can be extremely serious injuries. Motorcyclists should seek medical treatment any time they are thrown from their bike, even if they do not feel as though they are injured.

Injuries to the spine, neck, and back are also common after a motorcycle accident. These are often very serious, as they can cause paralysis, ruptured discs and other serious conditions. If there is any tenderness at all in these areas after a motorcycle accident, medical treatment needs to be sought.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you speak to a North Bay motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. A lawyer may be able to determine if you have a valid claim against a negligent driver and may be able to help you get any compensation you may be entitled to.
