Causes of Wellington Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents almost always happen because of negligence. Negligence is the failure to exercise the same degree of care that a person of ordinary prudence in the same situation would exercise. Examples of negligence that can lead to motorcycle crashes include drunk driving, distracted driving, speeding, performing illegal maneuvers, aggressive driving, and more. Both drivers and motorcyclists may act negligently, leading to a crash.
In addition to operator’s/driver’s errors, other things that may cause a motorcycle crash could be poor road conditions, a lack of adequate signage, bad weather/visibility, and defective vehicle parts.
Injuries from a Motorcycle Accident
It is rare for a motorcyclist who is involved in a crash to walk away from that crash without serious injuries; instead, it’s more likely that the injuries suffered will be debilitating and disabling and, sometimes, even fatal. Common injuries include traumatic brain injuries, internal injuries, facial injuries, bone fractures, amputation injuries, and road rash.
In addition to physical injuries, a motorcyclist is likely to suffer:
- High medical bills;
- Lost wages;
- Property damage costs; and
- Pain, suffering, and emotional distress.
