Causes Of Motorcycle Crashes
Of course, many motorcycle accidents are caused by the same types of factors that lead to other motor vehicle accidents — things like careless or drunk driving — but motorcycles are particularly susceptible to:
- Slippery roads: With only two tires and less natural stability, motorcycles are much more likely to slip and spin out of control due to wet and slippery conditions on roadways.
- Left-turn accidents: Accidents on intersections, especially involving left turns, are among the most common for motorcycles. Car and truck drivers taking left turns often fail to see motorcycles crossing intersections, resulting in remarkably frequent accidents.
- Lane change accidents: Because motorcycles are so much smaller, many drivers simply don’t see motorcycles, and they end up striking motorcyclists while making lane changes.
Lacking the protections afforded to other vehicle drivers, motorcyclists often suffer catastrophic injuries in motorcycle accidents. At Bruno & Bruno, our lawyers have handled the most tragic of injury claims. We have been serving injured clients for more than 60 years, and we can help you.
