Many motorcycle accidents are just that, accidents. Many motorists do not notice motorcycles and pull in front of them. When this happens the cyclist often dumps their bike or hits the side of the vehicle which just entered their path giving them no time to stop or avert the collision. Brian Alexander was a victim of an accident just like this. In his case a dump truck pulled right in front of him.
Motorcycle accidents are very harmful as the driers do not have seat belts, air bags, and other safety features. Accidents often result in serious injuries or death. Injuries vary from accident to accident and may involve anything from road rash and burns to spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, or crushed, fractured, or broken bones.
Aside from drivers simply pulling out in front of others, other common causes of bike accidents are speed, DWI, distracted drivers, defective bike design, or even other irresponsible motorcyclists who are driving recklessly.
Insurance companies often try to pass the buck and blame others for injuries. It is important to note that you do not need to give the other driver’s insurance company any type of statement. It is in your best interest to speak to an experienced motorcycle attorney who is local to Petaluma and knows the area.
