Types of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles offer freedom and excitement to riders. However, when others are negligent, injuries can be severe. Motorcycle accidents come in many forms, each presenting its own set of challenges and complexities. At Roberts Lambert, our team of experienced legal professionals has handled a wide variety of injury cases, tailoring our approach to address the unique nuances of each situation.

Collision with Another Vehicle

One of the most common types of motorcycle accidents involves collisions with other vehicles. These accidents can be caused by a variety of factors, such as failure to yield, distracted driving, or lack of awareness. Proving fault in these cases requires a deep understanding of traffic laws and the dynamics of accidents.

Single-vehicle Accidents

Another type of motorcycle accident is the single-vehicle accident. While there may not be another vehicle involved, these accidents can be caused by road defects or mechanical failures. Establishing liability in these cases often involves a costly and meticulous investigation into the details surrounding the incident.


Intersections are particularly dangerous for motorcyclists, with accidents frequently caused by drivers failing to yield, running red lights, or making abrupt turns. Determining fault in intersection collisions requires careful examination of traffic signal data, witness statements, and accident reconstructions.

Road Hazards and Debris

Motorcyclists are also at risk from road hazards and debris, such as uneven surfaces, potholes, and other obstructions. When accidents occur as a result of these hazards, the responsible entities for road maintenance may be held liable.

Driver Negligence

Finally, driver negligence is a broad category that encompasses many dangerous behaviors, including texting while driving, speeding, or driving under the influence. Proving negligence is crucial for establishing liability and securing full compensation.

At Roberts Lambert, we understand the unique challenges that each type of motorcycle accident presents. We work tirelessly to help our clients receive the compensation they deserve.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

When a motorcycle makes contact with another vehicle or object, the injuries sustained by the rider and their passenger can be catastrophic due to the exposed nature of the rider and the force involved in the collision. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures and orthopedic injuries, road rash, internal injuries, and soft tissue injuries can occur.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, are a prevalent and distressing occurrence in motorcycle accidents. Even when a rider is wearing a helmet, concussions and severe forms of brain trauma can still be sustained. These types of injuries can have long-lasting cognitive impacts, negatively affecting the quality of life for those who experience them.

Spinal Cord Injuries

The impact of a motorcycle accident can also result in severe consequences for the spinal cord, ranging from herniated discs to paralysis, necessitating significant medical care and rehabilitation. These types of injuries often lead to lifelong changes in an individual's life, necessitating ongoing support and adaptive measures.

Fractures and Orthopedic Injuries

Fractures and orthopedic injuries, such as broken limbs, dislocations, and musculoskeletal system damage, can result from the sheer force of a collision. These injuries often require surgical intervention and prolonged recovery periods, profoundly impacting an individual's mobility and overall well-being.

Road Rash

Road rash is a distinct injury often associated with motorcycle accidents that can occur when a rider slides across pavement during a collision, leading to severe skin abrasions that can expose individuals to infection and leave lasting scars. Treating road rash often requires extensive wound care, surgeries, and ongoing rehabilitation.

Internal Injuries

Blunt force trauma during a motorcycle accident can cause internal injuries, such as organ damage and internal bleeding. These types of injuries are often challenging to detect, emphasizing the importance of prompt medical evaluation. The consequences of internal injuries can be severe, necessitating intricate medical interventions and ongoing monitoring.

Soft Tissue Injuries

Muscles, ligaments, and tendons can be strained or torn during a motorcycle accident, resulting in soft tissue injuries that can manifest as chronic pain, limit physical capabilities, and necessitate ongoing medical attention. Managing the long-term effects of soft tissue injuries is crucial to the recovery process.

Motorcycle accidents cause a range of injuries that profoundly impact an individual's life, requiring significant medical attention and rehabilitation. Our team is here to support you on your path to recovery.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

The accident happened. You are injured and don’t know where to turn. Below we outline the right steps for you to take to recover from your injury and ensure that you are fully compensated.

Prioritize Safety

The first thing to consider is your safety. If possible, move to a secure location, away from oncoming traffic. Use your hazard lights and warning triangles, if available, to prevent additional accidents and ensure everyone's safety until first responders arrive.

Get Medical Help

Regardless of how minor injuries first appear, seeking medical attention is critical. Some injuries may not show symptoms immediately, and a medical evaluation can identify any underlying issues.

Call the Police

Report the accident to the police and request a police report. Your police accident report is valuable for insurance claims and legal proceedings. Be truthful and accurate while giving details to the responding officers, but avoid discussing or speculating about fault. Stick to the facts as you remember them.

Police list the different vehicles in their police report. Sometimes the officer will list the incorrect person as being at fault. Even if you are listed as at fault, you may still have a case. Neither the police report nor the officer’s opinion about fault are presented in court.

Record the Accident Scene

If you are physically able, take photos of the accident scene. Capture images of the involved vehicles, any visible injuries, road conditions, and relevant signage or signals. These visuals serve as crucial evidence when building your case.

Collect Information

Exchange information with the other party involved in the accident. Obtain their name, contact information, insurance details, and their vehicle's license plate number. Gather contact information for any witnesses, as well. This information will be invaluable during the claims process.

Don't Admit Fault

Do not discuss fault or assign blame at the scene. Anything you say can be used against you later. Stick to the facts when communicating with law enforcement, the other party, and any insurance representatives. Let the professionals determine fault.

Save Evidence

Preserve any evidence related to the accident, such as damaged clothing, photos of injuries, and receipts or invoices from medical treatment. This evidence is essential when determining the extent of damages.

Notify Your Insurance Company

Inform your insurance company about the accident as soon as possible. Provide them with the necessary details and allow them to guide you through the claims process. However, be cautious about discussing fault or accepting settlements without consulting an experienced personal injury attorney.

Get Legal Counsel

Seek legal advice from an experienced personal injury attorney, such as those at Roberts Lambert, after a motorcycle accident. We will analyze your case, help you understand your rights, navigate the legal process, and ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries and damages.

Here's a condensed summary of how it works.

Navigating a motorcycle accident case involves several key steps to ensure a fair and just resolution. Here's what you need to know.

Step One: Initial Consultation

The process begins with an initial consultation with Roberts Lambert. This is a crucial step where you share details about the accident, your injuries, and any other relevant information. Our legal team listens attentively, gaining a comprehensive understanding of your situation.

Step Three: Negotiation or Litigation

With a solid case in hand, we enter the negotiation phase. Our goal is to secure a fair settlement for you without the need for a court trial. However, if negotiations do not result in a satisfactory resolution, we are prepared to take the case to trial, advocating for your rights and seeking the compensation you deserve.
