Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
At D. Miller & Associates, PLLC, we have represented many motorcycle victims who were injured due to:
Distracted drivers do everything else other than pay attention to the road. Serious accident may occur when drivers look away to:
- Make a phone call
- Change the radio station
- Talk to a passenger
- Eat or drink
- Put on makeup
- Read a map or other materials
Hazardous Road Conditions
Sometimes, poor weather, like rain, can make for hazardous road conditions. Bikes easily slide during acceleration or while making sharp turns. In other situations, motorcycles crash due to falling branches or objects being left in the road. Also, objects easily fall off other vehicles and land in the roadway when drivers fail to secure them properly.
Careless drivers often fail to see bikers because they are not paying attention to their surroundings. Motorcyclists suffer serious, life-altering injuries when motorists fail to see them:
- Exiting or entering a parking space
- Making left turns
- Backing out of driveways
- Changing lanes
- Entering or exiting a highway or street
Malfunctioning Motorcycles and/or Defective Parts or Repairs
Motorcycles that were poorly manufactured, built with defective parts, or repaired incorrectly also lead to serious accidents and injuries. These cases are rather complex because they may require filing a claim against the bike’s supplier or manufacturer. Fortunately, we know how to handle these cases and, depending on your case, we will take the following steps:
- Consult accident re-constructionists and other specialists in the auto industry
- Compare and contrast similar motorcycle crashes
- Investigate product recalls
- Review maintenance records
No matter what caused your crash, motorcycle accidents can lead to devastating injuries because bikers have little protection from impact. We know this, and we know how to work every angle to get you the best possible outcome.
