Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are fun and can be a practical way to travel, but they can be dangerous. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a motorcyclist's risk of death per vehicle mile traveled is 27 times higher than that of a car occupant.

The following are some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:

Distracted driving

Any time drivers take their eyes off the road, they can cause an accident. Texting, calling, and eating while driving are all examples of distracted driving that often cause accidents.

Impaired driving

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can impair a driver’s ability to react quickly, making it harder to observe traffic.

Turning left in front of a motorcycle

The most common accident scenario for a motorcycle involves a car turning left in front of it. This happens when the car driver doesn’t see the motorcycle or misjudges their speed.

Liability in Motorcycle Accidents

Determining liability in motorcycle accidents is vital for determining who is responsible for the damages suffered by the victim. The following are some of the parties that may be responsible for a motorcycle accident:

  • The other driver: If the other driver’s negligence caused the motorcycle accident, they may be responsible for the victim’s damages.
  • The motorcycle manufacturer: A design defect or manufacturing error can cause the motorcycle’s accident, leading to the manufacturer's liability.
  • Work-site hazards: If a motorcyclist is injured in a work-related accident, the employer may be liable for the damages.

Types of compensation for motorcycle accident victims

Motorcycle accidents can cause severe injuries, leading to extensive medical bills, lost wages, and loss of quality of life. The following are some types of compensation that motorcycle accident victims can recover:

Medical expenses

This includes bills for hospitalization, surgeries, medications, and doctor visits. It may also include compensation for future medical expenses.

Lost Income

Motorcycle accident injuries can cause a victim to miss time at work, resulting in lost wages. A victim can recover lost income from the at-fault party in a lawsuit.

Pain and Suffering

Loss of Enjoyment of Life

This includes compensation for the victim’s inability to enjoy activities or events that they would have if the accident had never occurred.
