The 10 Primary Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

The risk of sustaining catastrophic or fatal injuries in a motorcycle crash is much higher than accidents involving other types of vehicles.  Because of a lack of any protective structure surrounding you, you are more exposed when you are involved in a collision.  On average, a motorcyclist is 27 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries and 5 times more likely to sustain multiple injuries when riding a motorcycle versus driving or riding in any other type of vehicle.

The BLPC AB Personal Injury Lawyer firm has handled numerous personal injury and wrongful death cases that involve a motorcyclist and another vehicle.  The following is a list of the 10 primary causes for these types of accidents:

  Dangerous or Hazardous Road Conditions
  Defective Motorcycle Equipment or Parts
  Driving Between Lanes or “lane Splitting”
  Excessive Speed
  Impaired Motorist (Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs)
  Inexperienced Motorists
  Misjudging Distances and Right-of-way Errors
  Motorists Opening Their Car Doors Without Looking
  Rear End Collision Resulting From Sudden Stops
  Unsafe Lane Changes

While negligence often plays a role in these types of vehicle collisions, there a growing trend of motorists failing to pay attention to motorcyclists when sharing the road with them.  As a result, motorcyclists need to exercise more caution when sharing the roads with other motorists.
