Motorcycle Sudden Stop Collisions Injury Attorney

​Drivers often miscalculate the distance in which they can safely follow a motorcycle. If a driver is following too close when a motorcyclist is forced to stop suddenly, the resulting accident can leave the motorcyclist with devastating injuries. Often, sudden stop collisions cause motorcyclists to be ejected from their bikes. At the Pascoe Law Firm, our experience with sudden stop collision cases is extensive. We will fight to protect your legal rights so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

Sudden Stop Motorcycle Accidents

What are “Sudden Stop Accidents?”

​One of the most common causes for motorcycle accidents involves a “sudden stop.” Sudden stops can cause the bike to cartwheel, turning end-over-end, catapulting the operator and frequently result in serious injury or motorcyclist death as the driver strikes any objects, fixed or moving, in his or her path.

​Common Injuries From Sudden Stop Motorcycle Crashes

Some common injuries that may result from a sudden stop motorcycle accident include:

Conversely, being hit from behind by another motor vehicle while that motorcyclist is stopping can throw the biker forward off of his or her bike, causing significant brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, facial disfigurement and potentially prove fatal.

Helping Improve Your Chances in a Sudden Stop Motorcycle Accident

The motorcycle accident lawyer at the Pascoe Law Firm are here to help. We at the Pascoe Law Firm support our motorcyclists, and in doing so encourage mindful, safe motorcycling. Here are a few tips to help you ride more safely:

  • In stop and go traffic, build a cushion between you and the vehicle ahead of you so you can help bring traffic behind you to slower stops

  • Tap your brakes so you signal your brake lights, capturing the attention of drivers behind you
  • Always travel a safe distance from the vehicle ahead of you
  • Obey speed limits
  • Slow down in construction zones, residential areas and school zones
