Motorcycle Accidents

San Diego Motorcycle Accident Attorney

The sense of freedom the open road provides lures many individuals to ride, however, this sense of freedom may also give riders a false sense of security. A devastating motorcycle accident can occur at anytime and sadly, result in serious catastrophic injuries. Shockingly, statistics show that motorcycle riders are 35 times more likely to die in a collision than the occupants of a passenger car. If a rider survives a collision, it is likely the rider will suffer a potentially life-threatening injury, such as:

  • Open or closed head injuries
  • Partial or complete amputation injuries
  • Mild, moderate or severe brain injuries
  • Compound or simple bone fracture injuries
  • Road rash injuries
  • Incomplete or complete spinal cord injuries
  • First, second or third degree burn injuries
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Back or neck injuries.

Causes of San Diego Motorcycle Collisions

Driver distraction
Many types of distractions can cause a driver to take his or her eyes off the road. Cell phone use, eating, drinking, applying makeup, getting dressed, other passengers, pets, navigation systems, and the radio are just a few of the various types of distractions drivers may encounter. According to a recent traffic accident study, spilling a beverage was the most common reason drivers lost focus of the road.

Defective motorcycle parts
Defective or faulty auto parts often cause single-vehicle motorcycle accidents. In an effort to cut costs and remain competitive in an aggressive market, many manufacturers are sacrificing quality of craftsmanship. Unfortunately, cost saving designs and production techniques can affect the performance, stability, and safety of an important bike part. A faulty brake, throttle, handlebar, or engine can cause a horrible motorcycle accident.

Poor road conditions
Poor road conditions, such as loose gravel, potholes, unmarked construction zones, missing road signs, and debris are often attributed to the cause of a motorcycle collision.
