Whether a motorcycle accident involves multiple vehicles or a single motorcyclist, the consequences can be devastating. This is especially true when large trucks are involved, whether a motorcyclist is struck by a delivery truck driver or someone operating a semi. There are a number of reasons why motorcycle crashes which involve large trucks can be so severe, such as the large size of trucks, and there are many reasons why these accidents happen.
Sometimes, large truck drivers have difficulty seeing motorcyclists, which has led to many crashes. Other risk factors include truck driver fatigue, intoxicated driving and ignoring the speed limit. It can take large truck drivers a long time to slow down, which can spell disaster on the roadway, and many of these accidents take place on the freeway when vehicles are traveling at high speeds.
If you were struck by a large truck while riding a motorcycle, you may be very fortunate to have survived the crash. However, you could be going through a very hard time and you may feel as if recovering from the crash is impossible. Whether you are having difficulties with physical, mental or financial challenges, these accidents can be overwhelming, and our law office knows how much the victims of these wrecks often suffer.
Negligent truckers who cause motorcycle collisions (and all other types of traffic accidents) should be held answerable for their actions and the suffering they have caused. We discuss many other legal issues concerning motorcycle collisions on our blog, and we believe that the victims of these wrecks should thoroughly examine their options.
