What You Should Know About Cruiser Motorcycle Accidents

Whether you own a Ducati, Honda, Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki, or other cruiser bike, your likelihood of being injured or dying in a crash remains the same. In 2015 alone, more than 88,000 motorcyclists were injured, and nearly 5,000 were killed. While motorcycles provide a sense of freedom, the limited protection increases your risk of serious injury.

Common causes for motorcycle accidents include:

  • Vehicles turning left
  • Lane splitting
  • Speeding
  • Road hazards

Left-turning vehicles in intersections account for more than 40% of all collisions involving cars and motorcycles. If you try to pass the car or speed through the intersection, the driver of the turning vehicle may not see you in time. Especially at night, drivers can have a difficult time judging the distance between you and the intersection. While North Carolina requires you to burn your headlight at all times, we encourage you to burn any auxiliary lights and be aware of weather conditions that may affect a driver’s ability to see you.

Cruiser motorcycle accidents, while generally not as severe as supersport wrecks, can have long-lasting impacts. Injuries include broken bones, head or brain trauma, internal injuries, paralysis, and spinal cord injuries. Even with a helmet, eye protection, gloves, and protective clothing, you have a high risk of injury and death if you crash.

Quality Representation for Motorcycle Accident Cases

At The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, our experienced North Carolina motorcycle accident attorneys can provide diligent representation as you seek compensation. In North Carolina, the statute of limitations is 3 years. This means you must settle your case or file a lawsuit within 3 years or your claim will be forever barred.

The state of North Carolina requires motorcycle riders to carry minimum insurance limits of $25,000 for total property damage, $30,000 for accidents involving one person, and $60,000 for accidents involving more than one person. You and your passengers are also required to wear helmets, but eye protection is optional. If you have been injured in an accident, we can investigate your incident and gather evidence to build your case.
