Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

A majority of the motorcycle accidents resulting in injury or death involve another vehicle, most often a car, and are very often due to failure by the other driver to yield the right-of-way or observe the motorcyclist on the road to begin with.

Secondary conditions contributing to motorcycle accidents include:

  • Weather, including rain, snow, hail, “black ice” and other extreme conditions leading to reduced visibility and unsafe driving conditions.
  • Road hazards including debris, oil slicks, puddles, potholes and uneven pavement contributing to a dangerous riding environment.
  • Motorcycle defects such as fuel system leaks, which present an increased risk of fire in the post-crash phase.

Nearly 70 percent of motorcycle accidents occur at intersections. Several causes of motorcycle accidents include intersections where visibility has been compromised due to:

  • Shrubbery
  • Fences
  • Parked vehicles
  • Buildings

Based on current statistics, roughly 80 percent of motorcycle accidents in the United States end in injury or death compared to only 20 percent of automobile accidents. Additionally, motorcycle accident fatality rates have been on the rise since 2003 with the most recent statistics showing an increase of 55 percent. Based on current trends, if you are hit by a car while riding a motorcycle you are three times more likely to be gravely injured, and 14 times more likely to be killed than an individual injured by an accident involving two cars.

You should be aware that motorcycle accidents are treated differently than those involving other motor vehicles. A palpable amount of intolerance exists against motorcycle riders in many parts of the United States. The lawyers at Eisenberg, Gilchrist & Cutt will fight against this prejudice to recover damages for your serious injury.

  • I was in an auto accident three years ago. The first auto accident I have ever been in, but the other driver was ticketed. This lead to slow and obvious pain that grew worse.
