Motorcycle Accidents: Why You Have to Watch Out
Because of their size and stealth, motorcycles are naturally less visible than other vehicles on the road, and because of their open nature, they are also more likely to result in devastating consequences for riders involved in crashes. As of 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration puts motorcyclists at a 28% greater risk of dying in an accident than car occupants, while studies have shown that 98% of multiple-vehicle collisions and 96% of single-vehicle collisions result in injury to motorcyclists.
There are many causes of motorcycle accidents, all of which can be used as grounds for a settlement in a court of law. If you see another motorist practicing any of these behaviors, avoid them at all costs, and contact an attorney if you are injured as a result.
Behaviors That Commonly Lead to Motorcycle Accidents:
- Weaving in and out of traffic lanes
- Making a lane change without looking
- Operating a vehicle in poor weather or road conditions
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving distracted (texting, eating, not paying attention)
