What To Know About Motorcycle Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 5,014 motorcycle fatalities occurred in 2019. Roughly 29% of deaths were drunk drivers. Riders are also 29% more likely to sustain fatal injuries riding a motorcycle than riding in a car.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

One of the most common ways motorcyclists crash is by losing control of their vehicle. Other contributing factors include:

  • Machine defects
  • Distracted driving
  • Inexperience driving motorcycles
  • Tailgating
  • Changing lanes unsafely
  • Speeding

Common Injuries of Motorcycle Accident Victims

Riding motorcycles leaves the rider unprotected. The lack of coverage on all sides, unlike a standard car, increases the likelihood of life-altering injuries and substantial medical expenses. In some cases, the result of the crash is death.

Other injuries you or a loved one can sustain from a motorcycle crash are:

  • Concussions
  • Fractured bones
  • Road rash
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage

Determining Liability for a Motorcycle Accident

Despite the causes of motorcycle accidents, more than one person is usually to blame for the crash. However, Alaska residents don’t have to prove the other driver was utterly liable before filing accident claims against the offending party or insurance companies.

Sometimes only the motorcycle rider is involved in a crash caused by someone else’s negligence. For instance, the bike could have a factory defect, or someone may fail to put up a road construction sign.

Liable parties for these accidents can include:

  • Other motorists
  • Pedestrians and cyclists
  • Motorcycle manufacturers
  • Government agencies and transit authorities
