A motorcycle accident can cause catastrophic, life-threatening injuries in the blink of an eye. Even if a rider is wearing a Department of Transportation-approved helmet (which is not required for riders over the age of 18 in Ohio) and other protective gear, he or she may experience significant injuries if involved in any type of collision. Broken bones, road rash, head trauma, and spinal cord injuries may all be caused by a motorcycle accident.

Investigating to Determine What Caused Your Motorcycle Accident
It will take a complete investigation, review of physical evidence, and possibly a computerized reconstruction of a motorcycle accident to determine its cause. One or more contributing factors may have led to the collision, so it will be important to identify the primary cause and, by association, the party that should be held legally responsible for your injuries.
The following are examples of factors that can contribute to or cause a motorcycle accident:
- Distracted or drunk drivers
- Objects or large potholes in the road
- Rights turns into a motorcyclist’s path
- Unsafe lane changes
- Heavy weather
- Speeding or driving too fast for current road/weather conditions
- Defective motorcycle or auto parts
