Motorcycle Accidents

According to studies by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 75% of all motorcycle accidents and 50% of fatal accidents, involve two vehicles.  The second is usually a car, and the motorcyclist almost always fares worse.

The most common factors in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Inexperienced riders or drivers¬†
  • Speeding
  • Alcohol & drugs
  • Distractions (texting, talking on a cell phone, eating)
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Not using a turn signal
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Tailgating
  • Lane splitting
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Unexpected obstacles
  • Over braking
  • Vehicle defects
  • Road defects (potholes, broken asphalt)
  • Harassment and road rage
  • Failing to wear protective gear (helmet, leather)
