Chopper Law: Rear End Motorcycle Accidents And Collisions

Many different types of highway and street motorcycle accidents threaten the well-being of bikers every day. According to various studies and national statistics, thousands of cyclists experience injuries each year due to issues like distracted driving and inattention, bad road design, debris or weather conditions, as well as insufficient safety equipment or even poor bike design or malfunctioning parts.

When a motorcycle accident involves the actions of multiple drivers, Florida law enforcement looks at the facts of the case to determine fault. However, when it comes to the final police report, it doesn’t always reflect the entire truth about the incident. Victims rely on the Chopper Law motorcycle accident attorneys to help them present the real facts surrounding a collision or accident from their point of view.

Chopper Law Motorcycle Accident Attorneys: Two Types Of Rear End Motorcycle Accidents

Rear-end motorcycle accidents generally fall into two categories. The first is probably the one you are thinking of now. It is a case where you stop and you are hit from behind. The other type of rear-end accident, also called a sudden stop accident, can be extremely injurious, causing permanent disability or death. Sudden stops can cause your bike to cartwheel, turning end-over-end, catapulting the driver and any rider across the handlebars. As a result, the driver may strike any objects, fixed or moving, in his or her path. Some common injuries that may result from a sudden stop motorcycle accident include:

  • Brain trauma
  • Broken bones
  • Broken neck
  • Concussion
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Paralysis

Conversely, being hit from behind (a “classic” rear-end collision) by another motor vehicle can throw the biker forward off of his or her bike, causing permanent brain damage, paralysis and spinal cord injuries, facial disfigurement and even be fatal.

Rear-end accidents are one of the most deadly kinds of collisions for bikers who don’t have the same protection a car or truck provides. Florida state law regarding rear-end motorcycle accidents can be complex. Nevertheless, negotiating a potentially complex motorcycle rear-end accident case often requires key documentation and an aggressive motorcycle accident attorney who is willing and prepared to face insurance lawyers who may not have the best interests of the accident victim in mind.
