There are many types of motorcycle accidents, including these common examples:

  • Collisions caused by the sudden maneuvers of other drivers - Car, SUV, and truck drivers, especially those that are distracted, perform sudden and dangerous maneuvers all the time, including quick lane changes and hard braking. These maneuvers can leave a motorcycle rider with no time to react, and result in an accident.
  • Rear-end collisions - Distracted drivers also fail to notice stopped vehicles in stop-and-go traffic situations, as well as at stop signs and traffic lights. The vehicles in front of them are often motorcycles, which are rear-ended when the driver has no time to take evasive action.
  • Improper obstructions - In an attempt to keep people off of their property, property owners frequently put up chains and fences around certain parts of their land. In circumstances where they do not warn people about these obstructions, off-road motorcycle riders can come upon them suddenly, and be seriously injured.
