What is a “Non-Contact” Collision?

What is a “Non-Contact” Collision?

As a Los Angeles car accident lawyer, I’ve handled many different factual scenarios involving Los Angeles car accidents.

One such scenario I recently handled was a “non-contact” collision.

What, you might ask, is that?

A non-contact collision happens when one of the vehicles crashes, but not necessarily into another vehicle at the scene.

A common non-contact collision involves motorcycles.

Say, for example, a motorcycle is traveling in one lane, and another car cuts off the motorcyclist.  The motorcyclist swerves out of the way, loses control of the bike, and hits the ground or collides with something else, like a tree or telephone pole.

That would be a non-contact collision.

Who would be at-fault for the motorcycle crash in this scenario?  Probably the car that cut off the motorcyclist, for making an improper lane change.

Non-contact collisions happen every day in Los Angeles.  In my practice, I’ve seen the painful injuries that a non-contact collision can cause.

Drivers should be aware how one dangerous move behind the wheel affects other motorists on the roads.
