Why motorcycle accidents happen at intersections
Motorcycle accidents at intersections are almost always attributed to driver negligence. The primary factors resulting in motorcycle accident at an intersection include:
- Negligent left turns: A motorist who turns left into a side street or at a four-way intersection without regard for oncoming traffic can put motorcyclists in danger. At full speed, a motorcyclist can be thrown into the air, resulting in severe and fatal injuries.
- Pulling out of a side street: When a driver makes a left or right turn out of a side street without regard for oncoming traffic, their negligence can result in a motorcycle crash. The motorcycle can strike the side or back of the turning vehicle.
- Failure to obey traffic signals and signs: Running traffic lights and stop signs, or failing to yield the right of way, puts motorcyclists at risk. Without the protective frame provided by passenger vehicles, a broadside accident can be devastating to motorcyclists.
Our attorneys will fight for justice
Passenger vehicle drivers are always expected to watch out for motorcycles, especially at intersections. Even if there is no doubt that the driver was at fault for causing your accident, dealing with his or her insurance company can be exhausting. They may try to pin the blame on you or downplay the extent of your injuries. They may even offer you a "low-ball" settlement in hopes that your claim will go away. But you should never succumb to their false generosity. Such a settlement is rarely enough to cover the cost of medical bills, loss of wages and suffering.
