Being involved in a motorcycle accident can be a devastating and traumatic experience. It can be a struggle to deal with it emotionally, not to mention financially and physically. Injured victims must often take time off from work in order to recover, which can add to their financial burdens.

It is common for motorcyclists who are stopped at a traffic light or are slowing down for traffic ahead to be at risk of being struck from behind. A rear-end collision can be particularly traumatic for motorcyclists who do not have the same protections as someone may have inside a car or a truck. Occupants of other passenger vehicles are usually buckled up and may be protected by an airbag. Motorcyclists only have their helmets and the clothes they are wearing to protect them.
Often, motorcyclists who are struck from behind are knocked to the ground or ejected from their motorcyclists. They may land on another vehicle or on the pavement. This type of an accident could result in major or even catastrophic injuries depending on the speed at which the collision occurs and the point of impact. Some of the injuries motorcyclists may suffer in a rear-end collision include head trauma; spinal cord injuries; neck and back trauma; broken bones; lacerations; and internal injuries.
When it comes to motorcycle crashes, insurance companies may try to argue that the motorcyclist was at fault – even when he or she did nothing wrong or did not cause the accident. In most cases, a rear-end accident is considered the fault of the driver who rear-ends the other vehicle. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle collisions include drunk driving; distracted or fatigued driving; and excessive speed. Even when a case may seem straightforward, injured victims may need quality legal representation in order to negotiate a fair settlement or take the case to trial if necessary.
