How Do Motorcycle Accidents Happen?
The number one cause of motorcycle accidents is negligence. All too often, motorists in cars, trucks, and other vehicles are careless, reckless, or simply not paying attention—with devastating results.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Oregon include:
- Distracted driving
- Texting/cell phone use
- Drunk driving
- Traffic law violations
- Failure to follow traffic control devices
- Failure to yield the right-of-way
- Road rage
- Street racing
- Reckless/aggressive driving
- Failure to check blind spots
- Unsafe passing/merging
Oregon's Rule of Comparative Negligence
Whatever the cause of your motorcycle accident, if you believe someone else was at fault, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your damages. In fact, under Oregon’s rule of comparative negligence, you could even be able to recover a settlement or verdict if you were partially at fault for the motorcycle accident.

Why You Need an Attorney with the Right Experience
According to a 2019 report by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are nearly 29% more likely than a driver of another motor vehicle to lose their life in a fatal accident. This information does not necessarily dictate that the motorcyclist is at fault but that they are vulnerable and exposed, especially when other motor vehicles act negligently.
When it comes to your motorcycle accident claim, choosing an attorney with the right experience matters. Motorcycle accident cases are often more complex than other types of motor vehicle accident claims. For one thing, motorcyclists tend to sustain severe, life-altering injuries when they are hit by larger, heavier vehicles.
Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Broken bones (fractures)
- Soft tissue injuries
- Friction burns (“road rash”)
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries (including paralysis)
- Nerve damage
- Accidental amputation
- Internal organ damage
- Serious cuts, scrapes, and abrasions
- Crush injuries
These and other catastrophic injuries have immense, long-lasting effects. You need an attorney who knows how to not only fight for the compensation you need right now for your current medical costs but also for expenses associated with your projected lifetime care, lost future earnings, and ongoing pain and suffering.
Another thing that makes motorcycle accidents so complex is the prevalent misconception that motorcycles are inherently dangerous and that their operators are dangerous, risk-taking drivers. While we at Lowe Law Firm know that this is simply not true, juries often do not. Most people can relate to a car accident victim, as most people drive cars. But few people ride motorcycles, and fewer jury members will be able to relate to your situation. You need an attorney that can present your case in such a way that the jury can overcome preconceived notions about motorcyclists and relate and empathize with your situation.
