Motorcycle accidents are often the fault of other drivers. Motorcycles are smaller and faster than cars and drivers do not always look for motorcyclists before changing lanes, turning, or stopping at red lights. Additionally, debris and unsafe road conditions are typically far more dangerous for motorcyclists than the average auto driver.
Some common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
• Head-on collisions with other drivers
• Drivers turning left in front of motorcyclists
• Drivers changing lanes in front of motorcyclists
• Alcohol/DUI-related accidents
• Road hazards and unsafe driving conditions
• Faulty and/or malfunctioning parts
Nearly all motorcycle accidents are serious. You may be suffering not only from painful physical injuries, but financial stress due to mounting medical bills, lost wages, and inability to return to work. These are all compounded by the emotional trauma of suffering a devastating accident.
