Motorcycle Truck Crash

Motorcyclists are freewheeling "road warriors" who enjoy the journey more than most. However, because they are small and unprotected, they are also the most exposed of all motorists. In a motorcycle truck crash, a motorcycle doesn't really stand a chance. Trucks can weigh from 10,000 to 80,000 pounds, while motorcycles usually don't go much beyond 1,000 pounds. Besides that, motorcycles are difficult for passenger car drivers to see, much less truck drivers who ride so far above the road. In addition, there is little to protect the motorcycle rider from injury. That should explain why motorcyclists are 5 times more likely to be injured in an accident with a larger vehicle and 26 times more likely to die in such a crash. However, two-thirds of all motorcycle accidents with another vehicle are the other driver's fault. An accident lawyer can help determine who is liable in a motorcycle truck crash.

Fast Facts

  • It is estimated that over 30% of all truck accidents cause at least one injury, while 80% of motorcycle accidents end in injury or even death.
