Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents in North Carolina

Motorcycle Accident LawyerFive particularly common kinds of motorcycle crashes include the following:

  1. Left Turn Crashes — Many accidents in North Carolina are the result of motorists turning left in front of oncoming motorcycles. In most cases, negligent drivers fail to properly gauge the speed of oncoming motorcycles. Drivers might also fail to see the motorcycles entirely. Whatever reason a driver might have, the motorcyclist is powerless to avoid a collision. Victims are typically thrown several feet from their bikes.
  2. Lane Change Accidents — Motorcycles are not as large as other passenger vehicles, so they are more likely to be missed when people check their blind spots. Several motorcycle collisions occur because of negligent drivers changing lanes into motorcycles that are often traveling in the same direction. Motorcyclists often suffer catastrophic injuries in these types of crashes.
  3. Rear-End Collisions — So-called “fender benders” occur when one motor vehicle strikes the rear bumper of another vehicle, often at low speeds. When a passenger vehicle strikes a motorcycle from behind, even at a low speed, the force can still be enough to throw a motorcyclist from his or her bike.
  4. Drunk Driving — Motorists are much more likely to make bad decisions about dealing with motorcycles when they are driving while impaired (DWI). Drunk drivers regularly cause motorcycle accidents, many of them fatal.
  5. Dooring Accidents — Just as bicyclists face the same danger in urban areas, less aware passengers in other locations can similarly endanger motorcyclists when they swing open the doors to passenger vehicles on busy streets.

Not all motorcycle crashes involve other vehicles though. It is not uncommon for some motorcyclists to be injured in accidents caused by issues with the motorcycles. If a person sustains injuries in a crash caused by a manufacturer’s defective item or an improper repair, a claim could still be filed against the negligent party.
