The truth is, riding a motorcycle is as dangerous as it is exhilarating. While this is a risk riders must accept when they mount their rides, it is important that riders be aware of common causes of motorcycle accidents, and serious harm presented by such occurrences. If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident, Michigan motorcycle accident attorney Chris Trainor can advise you of your rights and options.

Invisibility and Collisions

One of the most common causes of these accidents occurs in heavy traffic situations, where fellow motorists are unaware of the presence of cyclists and collide into them. Because there is very little bodily protection offered by a motorcycle, cars may veer into traffic lanes where motorcyclists are riding, often leading to serious injury or death. Such actions may, depending on the facts, legally constitute a violation of the rights of the motorcyclist. A Michigan motorcycle accident attorney can assess whether you may have recourse in such an instance.


Speeding is another leading cause of motorcycle accidents. Specifically, where inexperienced riders get overly eager to test the limits of their "speed machines," they can easily lose control of the wheel or have inadequate time to brake in the event of sudden stops, traffic, or road obstacles. Spiraling or falling in fast-moving, high-traffic areas can expose riders to being hit or run over by passing cars. Understandably, this often leads to fatal or near-fatal catastrophes. Another common cause of accidents is overaggressive driving techniques and "tricks" executed by motorcyclists, which can also have dire or even fatal results. Riders attempting fancy moves on their bikes or extreme manuevers to leverage the speed and acceleration of a motorcycle can be exposed to big legal liabilities, in addition to physical harm. You should contact a Michigan motorcycle accident attorney if you have been arrested or confronted by the police for such behavior.

After-Effects; Fire

Beyond the point of impact, the after-effects of motorcycle accidents can have even worse consequences. This is particularly true where fires caused by fuel leaks exacerbate the extent of injuries following a crash.

If you have sustained injuries from fire as a result of you or another's motorcycle accident, then you should reach out to Michigan motorcycle accident attorney Chris Trainor today. The initial consultation is free of charge.
