Types of Motorcycle Accidents
Injured? Our Columbus Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Can Help!
Motorcycle riders have far less protection in a crash than those in passenger vehicles. For this reason, any accident for a motorcyclist is far more likely to result in a serious injury or even death. There are many different ways motorcyclists may crash, and an accident can occur through the fault of another driver, a road hazard, a malfunctioning part, or some other issue. Whatever the reason, if you were harmed in an accident through no fault of your own, you may have a personal injury case.
At Rourke & Blumenthal, our Columbus motorcycle accident attorneys are dedicated to providing compassionate legal help while seeking maximum compensation for our clients. We have more than 150 years of combined experience, and we have the results to prove it.

Protecting the Rights of the Injured
We understand how overwhelming a motorcycle crash can be, especially if you sustain a serious or life-threatening injury. When you invest in our team, we can investigate the circumstances of your crash and determine how it occurred and who may be at fault.
Common types of motorcycle accidents include:
- Head-on collisions. These accidents are extremely dangerous and typically occur when a vehicle crosses into opposing traffic or makes a wrong turn.
- Lane-splitting accidents. When motorcycles weave between lanes, other vehicles may not pay attention, hitting the motorcyclist.
- Left-turn accidents. Typically, when a vehicle turns left, a motorcyclist caught on the inside may go unseen and could be hit or swiped by the turning vehicle.
- Door collisions. A rider may collide with a vehicle door, usually because a driver or passenger opens the door towards the street without looking.
Motorcycle accidents may also occur because of part or bike defects, malfunctions, or faulty assembly. Road hazards or poor weather or visibility can also cause motorcyclists to lose control of their bike and crash.
Seeking Maximum Compensation for Your Injuries
If you were wrongfully injured because of another person’s carelessness or mistake, the negligent party should be held liable for the resulting damages. Whether the fault lies with another driver, a parts manufacturer, or a construction site manager, anyone responsible for creating a dangerous environment for a motorcyclist might be held liable. If you have a case, you may seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of wages, and more.
