Common Causes of Canton Motorcycle Accidents

Whether on Interstate 77 or through the Whittier Park, Vassar Park, Ridgewood, or Colonial Heights sections of Canton, motorcycles are extremely fun. But they can also be dangerous.

Motorcyclists suffer some of the most significant injuries because they are virtually unprotected.

To file a motorcycle injury claim, the injured party must establish that the driver that caused the crash was negligent. Negligence covers situations in which:

  • The driver was distracted
  • A driver made a sudden stop
  • The driver was speeding
  • A driver failed to follow the proper rules of the road
  • The driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents in Canton

When drivers are negligent, any number of motorcycle crashes can occur:

  • Rear-end Accidents: When another vehicle rear-ends a motorcycle the passenger can be thrown from their bike and onto the road.
  • Sideswipes: Because motorcycles are smaller than other cars on the road, they can sometimes not be spotted by drivers, leading to collisions.
  • Head-on Crashes: A head-on crash can be fatal for a motorcyclist since they do not have a vehicle surrounding them as protection.
  • Lane Change Accidents: Because of vehicle blind spots, lane changes can be dangerous (especially for a motorcyclist caught in a car’s blind spot).
  • Left-turn Crashes: If a vehicle makes a left-hand turn without proper precaution, collisions can occur.

Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident

In a motorcycle accident, you can suffer financially as well as physically. To seek compensation for your financial losses in a lawsuit, you will need to establish two legal elements. First, you must prove that another’s recklessness or irresponsibility caused the accident. Second, that your injuries directly resulted from the accident.

A personal injury claim after a motorcycle accident can help you recover your:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Physical limitations

KNR has helped numerous injury victims after motorcycle accidents get compensation for their long-term needs. For example, KNR represented a husband and wife who suffered multiple injuries after they were struck on a motorcycle while stopped at a red light. We ultimately recovered a $650,000 to help them recover.

If someone dies in a motorcycle accident, their loved ones can seek compensation by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
