Motorcycle riders might be seriously injured in a rear end motorcycle accident. If you are involved in such an accident where the other driver is liable, you can file a lawsuit and seek compensation. Victims of rear-end motorcycle incidents and many other sorts of accidents have the right to sue under civil law. The accident can cause you to incur costly medical bills or vehicle repairs and a lawsuit allows you to claim these expenses so you don’t have to bear these financial burdens.

What Are Rear-end Motorcycle Collisions?

As the term implies, read-end motorcycle collisions happen when a vehicle collides into the rear of a motorcycle. This is dangerous and can result in severe damage to both parties. The causes include the following:

  • Speeding: Driving too fast increases the risk of accidents.
  • Following closely: Insufficient stopping distance between vehicles is one of the top causes of rear-end collision
  • Driving under influence: The driver at fault is drunk or under the influence of drugs.

There are many other causes of rear-end motorcycle accidents. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) revealed that rear-end motorcycle accidents make up almost 33% of accidents, making it a serious problem for drivers on the road.
