Motorcycle Collisions Often Result in Devastating Injuries

When we look at data available from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, we can see that there were more than 1,700 total motorcycle collisions across the Commonwealth during the latest reporting year. Over the last four years of reporting data, the total motorcycle collision rate has remained fairly steady in Massachusetts. In 2020, there were 58 total motorcycle fatalities reported and 1,260 total non-fatal motorcycle accident injuries reported.

How Do Boston Motorcycle Versus Car Collisions Occur?

The unfortunate reality is that many vehicle drivers fail to respect motorcyclists and their space. Motorcycle versus car collisions have a variety of causes, including the following:

  • Rear-end accidents: We often find that motorists follow motorcycles too closely. Rear-end collisions are much more likely to occur when drivers fail to leave space between themselves and motorcyclists in front of them.
  • Left-turn accidents: Left-turn accidents are the most common type of motorcycle accident. These occur when a vehicle turns left and crosses the lane of oncoming traffic. If a vehicle crosses traffic in front of a motorcyclist who has the right of way, this can lead to a devastating accident.
  • Passing a motorcyclist too closely: When motorists pass motorcyclists on the roadway, they often do so too close to the motorcyclist. This can lead to either full impact collisions or, more likely, sideswipe incidents that cause the motorcyclist to veer into traffic or off the roadway.
  • Drunk or impaired driving incidents: Anytime a vehicle driver is impaired by alcohol or drugs, they are much more likely to pose a serious hazard to motorcyclists on the roadway.
