Leading Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
One of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents is the drivers of larger vehicles failing to check for bikers before changing a lane, making a turn, or altering course. When made without first looking for motorcycles, even these common maneuvering techniques can result in serious and fatal injury.
Other common causes of motorcycle accident include:
- Equipment failure
- Inclement weather
- Poorly designed or maintained roadways
- Driver distraction
If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident, the best way to determine its real cause is by working with an experienced and dedicated personal injury attorney. Our motorcycle accident lawyers have decades of combined experience investigating these incidents to identify all liable parties and seek full compensation for victims.
You can help protect yourself from motorcycle accidents by carefully inspecting your bike prior to riding, avoiding drugs and alcohol before operation, and paying close attention to the road. Taking these precautions may prove lifesaving when other drivers fail to yield right of way or fail to properly look for motorcycles. However, even the safest of motorcyclists cannot prevent poor decision making on the part of others, making it important that you understand your options in the event you are injured.
