What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
There are several different circumstances that can cause a motorcycle crash, including driver negligence, mechanical malfunctions, and road hazards. If you or someone you love was harmed in a crash, it could have been caused by someone else’s negligence or mistake. Another driver might drive intoxicated, or they might become distracted, causing them to swerve into a nearby motorcyclist.
Likewise, a mechanical defect or faulty service might result in an issue with the bike, which could cause a brake failure or some other machine-related issue. Hazardous roadways caused by spilled debris or inadequate maintenance can also cause serious crashes.
Determining the cause of the accident is the first step in identifying the liable party. In the event of a driver error, the driver might be liable, whereas road hazards might fall under the property owner’s responsibility. At CR Legal Team, we can assess the details of your case and identify the party or parties liable for your injuries.
What Are the Most Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries?
Motorcycles lack the protective framework characteristic in trucks or cars, which makes motorcyclists especially susceptible to serious injuries in a crash. When motorcycle accidents do occur, the injuries can vary, but they are often very serious or catastrophic.
Common motorcycle injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Bone fractures
- Road rash
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
North Carolina Motorcycle Laws
In North Carolina, state law requires all motorcycle riders and passengers to wear helmets approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation. A motorcyclist also requires a special endorsement to their standard drivers’ license, which can be obtained upon the completion of a motorcycle training course.
