Largest Cause of Motorcycle Accidents

By De Castroverde Law Group  Nov. 1, 2010 11:35a

Motorcycle accidents can be some of the most deadly accidents as the driver is so much more vulnerable. In a car or truck, you have the encasement of metal around you, but not so when on a motorcycle. Motorcycles are more easily prone to accidents and can be downed more easily by weather conditions, slickness or debris on the road. As motorcycles are so much smaller than cars or trucks, other drivers often don't pay enough attention to them and cause accidents to occur.

The number one reason for motorcycle accidents caused by drivers is exactly that; they didn't pay enough attention or had a blind spot, and missed seeing the cyclist. It has been determined statistically that 70% of all motorcycle accidents in the U.S are caused by other drivers failing to recognize the cyclist and with the heavy traffic conditions that can exist in major cities like Las Vegas, this is a concern.

Other Causes

Other major causes of motorcycle accidents are speeding and lack of driver skills. Speeding while operating a motorcycle can wind up as a deadly move if one hits an obstacle or slippery road condition ; it's simply too easy to lose control of the bike. With all of the day to day distractions that can happen with drivers on the road, keep in mind that the majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by "other" drivers not seeing you. Take notice of how many people are talking on their cells phones while driving and are not paying full attention like they should be. This is one good example of driver distraction that is very commonplace.
