Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Riding a motorcycle down an open road can be one of the most freeing experiences, but also one of the most dangerous and life-changing. It’s important to know the many causes of motorcycle accidents so that you can ride safer and if necessary know when to get legal help.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

Collisions with a car or truck: Often times motorcyclists are hard to spot on the road due to their size (especially while lane splitting).

Bad weather: It’s best to avoid riding during storms or on icy roads as control of the motorcycle is greatly compromised.

Motorcyclist under the influence of drugs or alcohol: Drugs and alcohol can greatly effect reaction times, even in small amounts, and lead to tragic consequences.

Road Hazards: Hazards in the road such as pot holes, animals, and debris can pop up suddenly and abruptly! Be sure to always be aware of the road ahead.

Negligence: A motorcyclist may spot an oncoming car, or feel that they could make a turn at speed and continue on anyways.
