How Motorcycle Accidents Happen

Motorcycles are smaller and lighter than cars, trucks, and SUVs. They are also less visible to other drivers. This makes them extremely vulnerable to being involved in accidents. Unfortunately, due to the lack of physical protection a standard vehicle would provide, motorcyclists are also much more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries, or even fatalities, in the event of an accident.

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by a variety of factors. Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Lack of visibility to other drivers
  • Failure to yield the right-of-way
  • Speeding
  • Car doors
  • Lane switching
  • Lane splitting
  • Dangerous road conditions
