Motorcycle Accidents Can Cause Life-Threatening Injuries
Without airbags, seatbelts, or an enclosed vehicle to protect them, motorcyclists can suffer severe injuries in an accident. They can suffer impacts from being struck by a car, as well as from hitting the road and possibly skidding across it.
Motorcycle accidents may result in serious injuries, including:
- Severe damage to the skin
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury, which may cause various forms of paralysis
- Broken bones
- Serious damage to internal organs
- Internal bleeding
- And more
We recommend seeing a doctor as soon as possible after a motorcycle accident, even if you believe your injuries are just minor. A doctor can diagnose and begin treating any injuries you may have. In addition, a prompt doctor’s visit can create a link in your medical record between your accident and your injuries that may be useful in your motorcycle accident case.
Tragically, some motorcycle accidents are fatal. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are nearly 28 times more likely to die than car drivers or passengers in collisions.

Negligent Actions Can Cause Motorcycle Accidents
All drivers have a duty to be aware of others on and near the roads they drive on. When any motorists—including motorcyclists—behaves negligently on the road and causes an accident, they may be liable for the damages they cause in a personal injury lawsuit.
Some common forms of driver negligence include:
- Tailgating, or failure to maintain a safe distance
- Driving while drunk
- Driving under the influence of one or more drugs
- Driving while distracted, a behavior that encompasses several more specific behaviors, including texting while driving
- Disobeying safety mechanisms, such as stop lights and road signs
- Driving without functioning vehicle safety equipment, headlights, brake lights, side-view mirrors, and rearview mirrors
- Violating a traffic law
Drivers are not the only parties who may be liable for a motorcycle accident. If a mechanic fails to install a motorcycle’s brakes correctly, they may be liable for a resulting accident. Or, if a municipality leaves a major hazard in the road, such as uneven lanes or potholes, they may be liable if a motorcyclist crashes due to these dangerous conditions.
If you or your loved one were harmed by the negligence of another party, a Fort Worth motorcycle accident lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins may be able to help. We can investigate your case and identify the liable party when we represent you.
