Experienced Ohio Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Motorcycle accidents are among the most catastrophic incidents on minor and major roads. Unlike other drivers, motorcyclists face an increased risk of injury, and are about 29 times more likely than car passengers to die in a collision. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 5,500 motorcyclists died in accidents in 2020 alone.
Whether it’s a minor or major accident, injuries from a motorcycle collision can lead to lost wages, medical bills, property damage, and other expenses. The pain and suffering associated with a motorcycle accident can be overwhelming. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, our team of experienced accident lawyers in Columbus can help you obtain the compensation you deserve to get your life back on track.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Most motorcycle accidents occur due to the negligence of another driver, meaning motorcyclists are not at fault in most collisions. The majority of motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle, many of which happen as a result of distracted driving or another driver violating the motorcyclist’s right-of-way.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle crashes include another driver making an impromptu lane change, a left turn, or another hasty movement without checking blind spots and mirrors. Unfortunately, motorcycles are smaller than cars and trucks, and therefore less visible to other drivers on the road.
In 2020, over 5,700 motorcyclists were involved in fatal crashes due to elevated BAC levels. Even sober motorcyclists have about two seconds to perform avoidance maneuvers, which is not usually enough time to avoid an accident. An inebriated driver is inevitably going to have a slower reaction time.
