Cleveland Motorcycle Accidents: Common Injuries

A person is likely to be hurt in any roadway accident. However, motorcycles are especially unsafe.

The risk of riders sustaining major injuries in a collision with another vehicle drastically increases due to the size of motorcycles and the fact that riders have virtually no protection. For instance, you may be thrown onto the pavement or even through a windshield.

Injuries frequently seen in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Whiplash
  • Concussions
  • Dislocated joints
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Mental deficits
  • Nerve and muscle damage
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones

Cleveland Motorcycle Accidents: Common Causes

While the small size of a motorcycle is good for maneuverability, it makes them more susceptible to accidents. This is especially true on roads like Interstate 480, which is one of the most dangerous roadways in Cleveland.

Speeding is the number one cause of all auto accidents. But other causes of motorcycle crashes include:

  • Cars that try to pass motorcycles
  • Cars making left hand turns or switching lanes without making observations
  • Distracted driving caused by cell phones, other people, and even the radio
  • A motorcycle being rear-ended by a truck or car
  • Cars and other large vehicles attempting dangerous maneuvers
  • Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Motorcycle Accidents: Liability & Negligence

If the motorcycle accident and your injuries were caused by someone else, you may wish to file a motorcycle injury claim or lawsuit and pursue compensation.

To prove your case and ultimately secure what you deserve, you must establish negligence and liability. This means demonstrating:

  • The party at fault had a duty of care toward you
  • This duty was breached by a failure to act reasonably
  • The breach of duty caused the motorcycle accident and subsequent injuries
  • You suffered harm from these injures that you can be compensated for

Motorcycle Accident Compensation

Depending on the severity of your motorcycle accident and other factors involved, you may be able to recover compensation for your assorted economic and non-economic damages. Whether from a distracted driver or another negligent act, you may be entitled to your:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium

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 injuries after they were struck on a motorcycle while stopped at a red light. We ultimately recovered a $650,000 settlement to help them recover.

Fatal Cleveland Motorcycle Accidents

Tragically, motorcycle accidents are frequently fatal. However, if someone dies in a motorcycle accident, their loved ones can still seek compensation by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

Wrongful death damages after a motorcycle accident can include:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of comfort and society
  • Lost income
  • Loss of prospective inheritance
