Different Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Due to the lack of sturdiness when it comes to a motorcycle, as well as the exposure of the driver to the open road, motorcycle accidents are typically far more severe than regular passenger car accidents. According to the US federal government, deaths by motorcycle accidents are almost 30 times more common than passenger vehicle deaths.

From severe road rash to broken bones, brain injuries and trauma to the head and spine, typically these accidents threaten the quality of life and require the help of an experienced motorcycle accident attorney to ensure maximum compensation is received.

The typical motorcycle accident types include left-turn crashes, rear-end crashed, car-door accidents and lane-change accidents. These can all occur due to a number of instances and causes.

Here are the common causes of motorcycle accidents:

Defective bike

Sometimes the manufacturer is liable for the accident if the motorcycle is faulty. If the motorcycle malfunctions due to a defective part, an accident can occur. When choosing a bike, pick one that is known for quality. It is highly difficult to prove manufacturer fault.

Excessive speed

Many motorcycle drivers tend to ride at high speeds, making it easy to lose control or not be able to come to a stop when needed. Other cars are unpredictable in lane changes or other maneuvers that could also cause a motorcycle driver to lose control due to excessive speed. This is a leading cause of motorcycle accidents in Arizona.

Car doors opening

It happens often that the driver of a passenger car will open their door and not see an oncoming motorcycle, resulting in a motorcycle accident. This causes damage to the motorcycle, the car, and the person on the motorcycle.

Drive impairment

Unfortunately, a leading cause of motorcycle accidents is attributed to the use of drugs or alcohol by the driver — whether that be the motorcycle driver or the driver of the passenger car involved in the motorcycle accident.

As we’ve learned, motorcycle accidents are among the most deadly of accidents on the road. While you cannot control the driving behaviors of other on the road, you can be aware of potential accidents and learn how to avoid them. Here are a few tips to avoid motorcycle accidents:

- Look for signs that indicate that someone is about to turn in front of you.
- Don’t enter a corner too fast.
- Cars changing lanes into your lane.
- Pay attention to cars coming up behind you.
- Learn how to use your front brakes.
- Pay attention to potential car doors opening in front of you.
- Wet roads.
- Never drink and drive.

What Compensation can be Recovered?

Due to comparative law in Arizona where more than one party can be assigned a percentage of liability in the case of a motorcycle accident, the amount of compensation will depend on the nature of the accident. There are factors that are considered in order to determine fault including:

- If the motorcycle driver was wearing proper protective gear
- If the accident occurred because of the motorcycle driver’s error or because of road conditions

Because motorcycle accidents are so severe, the damages to be collected can be a significant amount depending on the specifics of the incident and the injuries sustained as a result.

If you or your loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you are able to collect compensation for the following:

- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Lost earning capacity

Your experienced motorcycle accident lawyer will be able to assess your incident and build a case surrounding the laws that apply for maximum compensation. When the accident occurs, collect all information and evidence possible including photos, driver information, witness information and more. It’s important to contact a motorcycle accident lawyer right away.
