Single-bike accidents involving motorcycles are very common, but also very challenging to be compensated for. They often occur because of the propensity motorcycles have for sliding, skidding and tipping over. Often another vehicle is at fault. Sometimes this other vehicle isn’t aware of the harm it caused, and speeds away. Other single-bike accidents are the fault of difficult road conditions such as construction zones.
THEY ARE CALLED “PHANTOM VEHICLES” BECAUSE THEY CAUSE A CYCLIST TO VEER OFF THE ROAD OR INTO ANOTHER VEHICLE. THE RIDER TAKES THE FALL, BUT THE PHANTOM VEHICLE SPEEDS AWAY — EITHER OBLIVIOUS TO THE HARM THEY JUST CAUSED OR INDIFFERENT ABOUT IT.
BAD ROAD CONDITIONS
BIKES TIP WHEN THEY ENCOUNTER A STRETCH OF GRAVEL, RAILROAD RAILS OR UNEVEN PAVEMENT. THE CHALLENGE FOR RIDERS IS TO SHOW THAT THE INJURY WAS NOT THEIR OWN FAULT.
SITUATIONS THAT ARE DESIGNED FOR MORE STABLE, FOUR-WHEELED VEHICLES PRESENT DIFFICULT CHALLENGES TO CYCLISTS. CONSTRUCTION AREAS OFTEN INCLUDE UNEVEN AREAS THAT CAUSE CYCLES TO BOUNCE, CRACKS AND GAPS IN THE HIGHWAY, EQUIPMENT AND OTHER OBSTACLES.
