Broadside Collisions Involving a Motorcycle Can Result in Catastrophic or Fatal Injuries

Motorcyclists have the right to use the roads just as much as any other motorists. Many drivers fail to check for motorcycles when making turns, approaching intersections, or engaging in other maneuvers. When a motorcycle is involved in a collision, it is more likely that a rider will suffer significant, life-altering injuries like brain trauma or paralysis. Given the lack of physical protection motorcycle riders involved in an accident tend to suffer severe injuries. Drivers who act negligently and cause these collisions should be liable for the injuries they cause. Marc S.

Broadside collisions occur when the front of one vehicle hits another vehicle on its side.

Broadside accidents are also sometimes known as T-Bone crashes. When a motorcycle is struck on its side by another car, the force of the impact can cause riders to be ejected from the motorcycle, leading to serious injuries or even death. A common cause of broadside accidents is a driver’s failure to yield the right of way to an oncoming motorcycle.

Recovering Compensation Following a Broadside Collision

Drivers are accountable for broadside accidents if they can be shown to have been negligent in a personal injury or wrongful death claim. New York requires all motorists to act as a reasonable and prudent person would under the same, or similar circumstances while behind the wheel. If an injured person, through their representation can prove the person who struck them acted negligently, they may recover damages.  Even if the insurance company places part of the blame on the motorcyclist, you may still bring a claim against the person that caused your injury.

A driver who runs a red light or a stop sign would likely be found to have acted negligently.  Negligence can also be a result of driving while intoxicated or being distracted. Once liability is shown, victims can be awarded damages in the forms of past and future medical costs as well as expenses related to time missed from work or their inability to earn a living in the same way due to their injuries.
