Why is a Motorcycle Accident Different from a Car Accident?

Every motor vehicle accident is unique. You can have the same two vehicles in the same type of crash but have different injuries and results. This is because a minor difference can have a major impact on the outcome of the collision. However, when you have different types of vehicles involved, there are differences that apply to those specific vehicles. For example, an accident involving a commercial truck is different from an accident involving only passenger vehicles. Large truck accidents tend to involve substantially more injuries to the occupants of other vehicles than to the truck driver. The reason is that a semi-truck provides more protection than a smaller vehicle in a collision between the two vehicles. Likewise, when you have a motorcycle or a bicycle involved in a crash with a passenger vehicle, the rider has an increased risk of injury because a bicycle and motorcycle do not offer the same protection as a passenger vehicle does for its occupants. Handling a motorcycle accident claim can be much more complex given the differences.
