Motorcycle Accidents Archives

Older motorcyclists facing higher rates of injury, death

According to a recent report compiled by the American Automobile Association, or AAA, the number of older, Baby Boomer motorcyclists who suffer significant or catastrophic injuries in a motorcycle accident has increased significantly over the past several years.

Helping you take action after a motorcycle crash

During the warm summer months, Ohio residents tend to see motorcyclists on roadways across the state. Whether it is for an enjoyable ride or used to commute to work, motorcycles are considered to be efficient vehicles and an effective form of transportation. Although we are in the peak of summer, this does not always mean that motorists are prepared to share the road with these smaller vehicles. Because of their smaller size, it can be difficult to spot motorcycles. This is why motorists are urged to double or even triple-check before changing lanes or making a turn. However, some drivers fail to uphold their duty of care when driving, resulting in a serious or even fatal motorcycle collisions.

Understanding the risks to motorcyclists on the roads

Throughout Ohio, it is not uncommon, especially during the warm summer months, to see motorcycles on the road. It is important for car drivers to be aware of this, and to be mindful about sharing the roads with motorcycles. Motorcyclists have many unique dangers on the road; understanding some of these risks, whether you are on two wheels or four, could help prevent a serious or catastrophic accident.

Keeping the roads safe for Ohio motorcyclists

Spring has sprung in Ohio, and many motorcycle enthusiasts are taking their bikes out of storage and hitting the road. In fact, May has been designated as motorcycle safety month, and it serves as a good reminder to all motorists that they must share the road with motorcyclists, whether it is on a crowded interstate or a rural country road.

Brain injury victims have important resources available to them

Any type of brain injury can have a significant impact on the lives of victims and their families. Brain injuries can occur in a variety of different types of motor vehicle accidents including car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle accident victims may be especially vulnerable because of the less protected nature of motorcycles and their riders. Any brain injury can present lifelong consequences for victims and their families.

Legal help seeking compensation after a motorcycle accident

Motorcycles are a frequent sight on the road in Ohio. While the majority of drivers will share the road with a motorcyclist and do so making sure that everyone is safe, motorcycle unawareness is a common problem that can lead to a crash. Failure to yield, lack of judgment and driving while distracted are all frequent causes of a motorcycle accident. Compounding the issues that go along with a motorcycle accident is the vulnerability of the rider or riders. This can result in severe injuries and even fatalities.

Compensation for head injury in crash may be sought

There is an unfortunate misconception by some in Ohio that simply by wearing a helmet, a motorcyclist is protected from catastrophic injuries in case of an accident. However, this is not always the case. Severe head injuries are still possible while wearing a helmet. In addition to this, lack of external protection means that motorcyclists are more susceptible to road rash injuries, scarring and concussions. Motorcyclists often get thrown from their motorcycle, leading to severe head injuries.

Motorcycle crashes and fatalities increased from 2014 to 2015

Ohio residents may hear a lot about the efforts being conducted by various organizations and law enforcement agencies to reduce the number of crashes and fatalities on the roads, and this may lead them to believe that motorcycle crashes are also decreasing across the state. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
