Everything you need to know about rear-end collisions
Motorcycle riders are generally exposed to a lot more danger on the road. Even the slightest impact with a car could result in severe injuries and even death, since motorcycle riders are not protected with any kind of seat belts, metal frames or airbags. Another dangerous collision similar to a head-on collision is the rear-end motorcycle accident, since it is completely unpredictable.
Rear-end collisions usually occur when one vehicle hits the back of the other vehicle. If the accident involved two SUVs or two sedan cars, the consequences will usually be minor. Nevertheless, when it comes to the motorcycle riders, rear-end collisions are most dangerous. In case a car hits the back of the motorcycle, it usually lifts the back wheel in the air, flips the bike and the motorcyclist forward, right on the road. If it was a high-speed collision, there is always a risk that the car will be unable to stop and will run over the motorcyclist. If the motorcycle rider will hit a vehicle in the rear, the bike may stop, but the velocity will throw the motorcycle rider forward. Hence, the bike rider may end up on top of the car or in front of it, on the ground, which can also cause various injuries.
Some of the following injuries may occur in case of a rear-end motorcycle collision: burns induced by the road rash, broken teeth, broken jaw, broken face bones, severe brain injuries, severe spinal cord injuries, shattered limbs, contusions and severe lacerations.
Motorcycle riders, who were involved in a rear-end collision, in most cases suffer from severe injuries, expensive medical treatment, loss of benefits or income, pain and so much more. If you were injured in a rear-end motorcycle collision, you will need to get in touch with a qualified and experienced attorney to ensure that you get all the compensation you deserve and negligent parties receive proper legal punishment. A good lawyer will be able to get you through all the legal proceedings with a positive outcome.
