Common Injuries in Head-On Collisions
Motorcycle head-on collisions can result in serious, life-threatening injuries, even at low speeds. Many head-on motorcycle accidents are fatal, more often than side-impact or rear-end collisions, leaving family members grieving the death of a loved one. The need for experienced and responsive legal representation is paramount, so you should come talk to Scott right away.
Life-changing injuries that are common in head-on motorcycle collisions include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Disfigurement or scarring
- Broken bones
- Back and neck injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Knee and joint injuries
Emotional pain and suffering cannot be discounted, particularly for family members whose lives have changed because a loved one died or requires around-the-clock care. The value of a claim can increase significantly when non-economic damages such as these are calculated and factored in.
How Head-On Collisions Happen
Many head-on collisions with a motorcycle do not happen because of the motorcyclist’s negligence. Instead, investigations often reveal that it was a driver’s mistake that cause the crash. Furthermore, most head-on collisions do not occur because a driver crossed into oncoming traffic, such as when a driver is drunk or exhausted. The majority of motorcyclists who are hit head-on by other motorists were riding through a green light at an intersection when the driver turned left directly in front of them, giving them no time to react and avoid the devastating crash.
Two main causes of head-on collisions at green-lit intersections are:
- Distraction: Driver distraction is a major issue that causes serious motorcycle crashes every day. When not paying attention to the road, a driver can make sudden turns and lane changes without warning.
- “Blind” drivers: Motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles and have one headlight. Some drivers subconsciously look for two headlights and a large silhouette when checking mirrors, blind spots, and approaching vehicles. As such, a driver can look directly at a motorcycle but be “blind” to it, not acknowledging that it is even there. This temporary “blindness” can cause the driver to swerve or turn suddenly into the motorcyclist as they approach an intersection.
How Can Head-On Collisions Be Prevented?
The easiest way to prevent head-on collisions with motorcycles is for every driver to give their full attention to the road. Motorcyclists can help prevent head-on collisions, too, by paying extra attention when approaching active intersections. This is where drivers are most likely to make a terrible mistake and hit a motorcycle head-on. More care and vigilance there could dramatically reduce the number of such crashes per year.
