What To Do After A Motorcycle Accident?

While all types of motor vehicle collisions can be dangerous, motorcycle accidents can be especially devastating.

Liability for Schaumburg Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can often result in severe injuries. Motorcyclists have little protection against bodily harm in a collision, and they may suffer multiple types of injuries, even if they used a helmet or other safety equipment and took care to follow traffic laws and avoid unsafe behaviors. While motorcyclists will usually take care to protect themselves as much as possible, other drivers may fail to act safely. Motorcycle accidents may occur due to issues such as:

  • Distracted driving - It is far too easy for drivers to fail to notice that motorcycles are traveling near their vehicles, especially if they are not fully paying attention to the road. Distractions such as talking or texting on cell phones, looking up directions on GPS devices, eating and drinking, conversing with passengers, adjusting the radio or other controls, reaching for objects, or daydreaming can take a driver's focus off of the road, making it more likely that they will not see a motorcycle or be unable to respond in time to avoid a dangerous motorcycle accident.
  • Reckless driving - Drivers may cause motorcycle accidents due to aggressive driving or other unsafe behaviors. These include speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, passing a motorcycle within the same lane, following too closely behind a motorcycle, and running red lights or stop signs. Reckless driving can be extremely dangerous, and drivers who put motorcyclists in danger due to their failure to follow traffic laws and share the road safely may be held liable for injuries that occur as a result.
  • Intoxicated driving - Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs pose a serious danger to motorcycle riders. Drunk drivers will be more likely to lose control of their vehicle, or they may be unable to respond correctly to the movements of motorcycles or other vehicles, leading to dangerous accidents.
