Phoenix Motorcycle Stationary Object Collision Attorneys

Legal Help After a Motorcycle Accident Involving a Fixed or Stationary Object

Not all motorcycle accidents involve other vehicles. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), 1,797 (42%) of motorcycle crash deaths in the U.S. in 2014 were suffered in single-vehicle accidents. According to the well-known Hurt Report on a study conducted by the University of Southern California for the U.S. Department of Transportation, approximately 25% of all motorcycle accidents studied were single-vehicle collisions with fixed objects in the environment.

Any stationary object along the roadways can present a hazard to motorcycle riders. These objects may include:

  • Guardrails
  • Cones, construction signs, and roadway equipment
  • Telephone and light poles
  • Trees
  • Fences
  • Vehicles on the side of the road
  • Buildings
  • Walls
  • Barriers

"Dooring" and Motorcycle Accidents

Like bicycles and cars, motorcycles can collide with vehicle doors when opened by occupants into the path of the bike, which is known as "dooring." Passenger vehicle occupants are seldom injured in collisions with doors opened in parked cars. Motorcyclists, on the other hand, may suffer serious injuries in this type of crash.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Collisions with Stationary Objects

According to the laws of physics, an object in motion tends to remain in motion. When a motorcycle collides with a stationary object, it may stop the bike, but the rider’s body remains in motion. A rider can be thrown violently from the bike and suffer serious injuries, or be fatally injured. The rider may also collide with and rebound off the fixed object struck by the bike.

These types of accidents can cause severe and catastrophic injuries, including:
