    What is a Lowside Crash?

    Motorcycling is a thrilling and liberating experience, but it also comes with inherent risks. Among these risks are lowsiders, a type of accident that can happen suddenly and leave riders with severe injuries.

    A lowsider refers to a specific type of motorcycle accident where the bike loses traction on either the front or rear tire, causing the rider to slide outwards and make contact with the road surface. This loss of traction can be attributed to various factors such as excessive speed, sudden braking, poor road conditions, or inadequate tire grip. When a lowsider occurs, the bike tends to slide to the side of the tire that lost traction, resulting in the rider being thrown off the bike.

    What Commonly Causes This Type Of Motorcycle Crash?

    One of the primary causes of lowsiders is the imbalance of forces acting on the motorcycle during a turn. As a rider leans into a curve, the centrifugal force generated by the bike's movement seeks to push it outwards. Simultaneously, the friction between the tires and the road surface provides the necessary traction to maintain stability. However, if the forces are not properly balanced, the bike can lose traction, leading to a lowsider.

    Common issues associated with lowsiders include the abruptness of the crash, the potential for injuries, and the challenges in proving liability. Lowsiders often happen suddenly, leaving the rider with little time to react or brace for impact. The result can be severe injuries, including road rash, broken bones, head trauma, or spinal injuries. Additionally, determining fault in lowsider accidents can be complex, as various factors such as road conditions, tire quality, and rider error may come into play.

    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
