Motorcycle accidents involving a sidecar

On Behalf of | Sep 29, 2017 | Serious Personal Injury

Motorcyclists face a number of risks when they take to the road. Sadly, when a negligent driver collides with a motorcycle, the motorcyclist may face an especially high chance of sustaining an injury or even passing away. Furthermore, it is crucial to remember that each accident is unique. For example, if you have a sidecar on your motorcycle, someone riding along may sustain an injury when they are struck by a vehicle. Our law firm understands the hardships that motorcyclists face following an accident and we believe that victims of these wrecks deserve justice.

Accidents involving motorcycles take many forms. Sometimes, motorcyclists lose control due to poor road conditions. On the other hand, a driver may strike a motorcycle because they failed to yield or were not paying attention to the road. Moreover, motorcycles with sidecars can present additional concerns. For example, a careless driver may not see the sidecar and collide with it, which could be devastating if someone is riding along. With less protection and the recklessness of some negligent drivers, those who are hit by another vehicle while riding a motorcycle face a particularly high likelihood of either being injured or losing their lives.

If you were riding in a sidecar on someone else’s motorcycle and were involved in a crash, or if you were operating a motorcycle and someone else was hurt while riding with you, looking into the various details of the crash and addressing the accident correctly is necessary.
