Rear-End Shunt Accidents
Rear-end shunt motorcycle accidents occur when a driver behind a motorcyclist fails to stop and crashes into the motorcycle, pushing (shunting) the motorcycle and its rider forward. Since the size difference between a motorcycle and a truck or car is so great, the motorcyclist generally suffers severe injuries and even fatal injuries in this type of accident. In this type of car accident, the motorcyclist is often pushed off their bike, causing head injuries, fractures and other serious injuries. In some cases, the motorcyclist may be crushed under the vehicle driving into them. The truly tragic fact is that many rear-end shunt motorcycle accidents in Miami and across South Florida are preventable. These accidents often occur because a motorist failed to pay attention or was so distracted that they did not stop in time. In some instances, these types of accidents are caused by drunk driving, drowsy driving, or other preventable issues.
