Motorcycle Accident Information

In many motorcycle accidents, motorcyclists are often accused of being the cause by engaging in unsafe maneuvers. This is often blatantly untrue. Many studies have shown that in most motorcycle accidents, blame lies with the other driver. One of the most common statements by motorists in these situations is that they failed to see the motorcyclist. This can often be true since automobiles have blind spots in which a motorcyclist may be missed. Motorcycles are much smaller and thus less visible.

Motorcycle crashes can occur due to many types of human error, such as:

  • Inattention
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting or using a cell phone while driving
  • Opening car doors in the path of an oncoming motorcyclist
  • Failure to obey traffic signs, red lights, and other signals
  • Speeding
  • Impaired driving from alcohol and/or drugs
  • Failure to yield
  • Tailgating
  • Breaking other traffic laws

Parties contributing to motorcycle accidents can also include the manufacturers of defective products. Even if you had some fault in a motorcycle accident, you may still be entitled to damages if the combined liability of the other at-fault parties was 51 percent or more.
