Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

By De Castroverde Law Group  Jan. 8, 2011 4:35p

Las Vegas is a busy city with lots of traffic and it would be a wise decision for any motorcyclist to be extra cautious while on the road because of this. According to research done on motorcycle accidents, the most common cause is from failure of other drivers to see the cyclist. As motorcycles are much smaller than cars and trucks, they can easily get caught in a driver's blind spot and wind up colliding with a motorcyclist. If weather conditions are poor or it is nighttime, this can further inhibit another driver's ability to see a motorcyclist leading to accidents. Approximately 70% of motorcycle accidents result from other drivers not seeing the cyclist. Drivers are simply not as attentive as they should be when it comes to smaller vehicles.

Other Causes

It is not always the other driver's fault when it comes to motorcycle accidents. Speeding on the part of the motorcycle driver is another common cause of accidents. Driving too fast lends itself to causing the front wheel of the bike to wobble resulting in the driver losing control. It also places him at a disadvantage if he hits some debris, an obstacle or a wet area and the bike can again, go easily out of control. Lack of education as a motorcycle driver is also a factor which leads to many accidents; getting educated in this area before taking to the road would be a wise piece of advice to adopt for any who are considering driving a bike.
