    What is a Highsider Accident?

    A highsider is a type of motorcycle accident that occurs during a turn, often when the rider is accelerating or applying power to the rear wheel. It involves the motorcycle's rear wheel losing traction and then suddenly regaining it, causing the bike to violently rotate and throw the rider off. The rider is typically thrown over the handlebars, leading to severe injuries or worse.

    How Does a Highside Accident Occur?

    A highsider usually starts with the rider applying power to the rear wheel to accelerate out of a turn. However, due to various factors like road conditions, excessive throttle, or abrupt weight transfer, the rear wheel loses traction, causing it to slide sideways. As the rear wheel regains traction, it rapidly propels the motorcycle forward, which can result in a violent and sudden flip known as the highsider.

    What Are Common Issues with Highsiders?

    • One of the main issues with highsiders is the sudden loss of control. Riders may find themselves caught off guard by the rapid rotation and be unable to react in time to prevent the accident.
    • Highsiders often lead to serious injuries, including broken bones, spinal injuries, head trauma, and road rash. In some unfortunate cases, fatalities can occur.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
