Wildlife and motorcycle accidents

We have gone over many of the different reasons why motorcycle crashes take place, whether a motorcyclist is hit by a drunk driver or finds themselves involved in an accident after slamming into a tree. However, there are less common types of motorcycle crashes that can be equally as dangerous. For example, a wild animal may dart across the road, causing a motorcyclist to either collide with the animal or fall down after swerving in an attempt to avoid the critter. As with all motorcycle wrecks, the consequences can be very tragic.

As a motorcyclist, you should keep an eye out for wildlife whenever you ride, especially if you live in a rural area or a place in which animals frequently cross the road. Even in an urban area, animals can pose a threat. For example, you could be riding your motorcycle in a city or on a suburban road when a dog or cat on the road causes you to lose control. Colliding with an animal can result in the loss of an animal's life, of course. However, it can also cause a motorcyclist to pass away, especially if they are traveling at high speeds. Sometimes, these accidents are more likely to happen during certain times of year or times of the day.

With any traffic collision, victims should focus on recovery. If someone's carelessness caused the incident, all options should be explored. Head to our law office's personal injury page if you want to access more material on traffic crash injuries.
