What Causes Motorcycle Lay Down Accidents?

There are many scenarios where motorcycle riders are forced to make a life-or-death decision without hesitation. This may occur because you were cut off by another driver or suddenly encountered a dangerous road hazard, like a large piece of equipment left behind by a work crew.

A motorcycle rider has the same rights as every other driver, and no one should enter your lane without warning. The following situations can put a rider in a situation where laying down your bike is a reasonable way to reduce the threat of suffering severe injuries:

  • A driver makes a lane change or merges without signaling
  • A driver suddenly pulls into traffic from a parking lot or driveway
  • A pile-up causes a halt in the traffic flow
  • A driver ignores a traffic signal
  • An unavoidable object was left in the roadway
  • A driver making a left turn pulls in front of you
  • A driver runs a stop sign
  • When the alternative to laying your bike down is going over a cliff

Who Is Liable for Motorcycle Lay Down Accident Injuries?

After the investigation is complete, your motorcycle accident lawyer will file a claim or lawsuit against anyone whose negligence contributed to your injuries. This may include:
