Types of Motorcycle Accidents By SEO Admin on March 07, 2013

Motorcycle accidents can be very serious, resulting in catastrophic injuries that can change your life as well as the lives of your loved ones. They can occur for various reasons, and not always the fault of other motorists on the road. Our team of Melbourne personal injury attorneys would like to look at different types of motorcycle accidents so you have a good understanding of what can cause them and why they can be such serious matters.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents are as follows:

  • Reckless driving

  • Speeding

  • Inattentive driving

  • Poor weather

  • Poor road conditions

  • Drunk/intoxicated driving

  • Poor vehicle maintenance

  • Defective parts/mechanical failure

Whatever the cause of your accident, our Central Florida personal injury lawyers will fight diligently to ensure that you receive just compensation for your injuries and losses.

Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accidents

Single-vehicle motorcycle accidents refer to accidents in which only the motorcyclist is involved. These accidents are not necessarily caused by the motorcyclist himself or herself. As noted above, the accident may be caused by road and weather conditions or defective parts.

Multi-Vehicle Motorcycle Accidents

Multi-vehicle motorcycle accidents are ones that involve the motorcyclist and another vehicle, such as a car, small truck, commercial vehicle, or public transportation vehicle. In these cases, our Melbourne motorcycle accident attorneys will examine all of the circumstances surrounding the accident as they pursue damages from the responsible party.

Motorcycle Accidents Due to Drunk Drivers

Drunk driving accidents are extremely serious matters that should never be taken lightly. Our auto accident lawyers in Central Florida will seek damages from these negligent and reckless drivers to ensure that they do not engage in such dangerous behavior again.

Motorcycle Accidents Due to Defective Parts

Sometimes auto manufacturers and auto parts manufacturers act negligently when producing and designing their products. This covers bad brakes, bad engines, or generally poor vehicle design. If their negligence causes an accident or causes the injuries sustained to be worse, the manufacturer(s) need to be held responsible.

Motorcycle Accidents Due to Poor Road Conditions

Sometimes when roadwork is being performed, the conditions of the road may not be ideal. This requires careful planning by the people doing the roadwork to prevent injury. Similarly, some roadways fall into disrepair and need to be fixed as soon as possible to prevent major accidents. If the poor road conditions are the cause of an accident, then the roadwork crew or the city needs to be held accountable.

Fatal Motorcycle Accidents

Sometimes the injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are so severe that they result in death. This is an unfortunate reality that many families of accident victims face. In such cases of fatal accidents, our Central Florida wrongful death lawyers will seek maximum damages against the responsible party to ensure that the loved ones of the deceased can achieve some form of closure.
