It is a common misconception that a motorcycle accident usually involves another vehicle, and not just the motorcycle. This is not always the case. Frequently, a motorcycle accident is the result of the motorcycle driver attempting to get out of the way of another vehicle, or swerving to avoid debris in a roadway. This type of accident is referred to as a “Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accident”.
