There’s certainly no limit to the ways a motorcycle can end up in a collision, from drunk drivers to mechanical and component malfunctions, however, there is one cause that is far and above the reason for most motorcycle-vehicle collisions. And, you may have guessed it, it has nothing to do with motorcycles. The majority of motorcycle-vehicle collisions are in fact caused by the other vehicle. The most common cause of such crashes is motor vehicle drivers failing to adequately check their left-hand lane and blind spot before merging into the left-hand lane or making a left-hand turn.
Left-Hand Turn Motorcycle Accidents
Left-hand turn motorcycle accidents are the most common type of motorcycle-vehicle collisions. These accidents can be easily avoided when motorists honor their duty of care to all other drivers on the road and take adequate precautions, such as checking their blind spot and intentionally looking for motorcyclists, before switching lanes or making left-hand turns. These accidents can also be among the most dangerous for motorcyclists to be involved in. Over half of these kinds of accidents result in the motorcyclist being killed. This can result in catastrophic damages, emotionally, physically, and financially.
Damages for Left-Hand Turn Motorcycle Accidents
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident due to another vehicle negligently making a left-hand turn, you are likely entitled to damages. The good news is that with regard to these kinds of accidents, negligence and fault are usually readily apparent. This can make it a relatively streamlined case when it comes to pursuing damages for your injuries. By bringing a personal injury lawsuit you can recover compensation for all past and future medical expenses related to the injury.
