Learn the common causes of motorcycle accidents to protect yourself on the road.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
While not every motorcycle accident has a specific cause, there are similarities in how they occur. First and foremost, many motorcycle accidents are not caused by the motorcyclists themselves but rather, by other drivers on the road. Oftentimes, distracted drivers are the cause of motorcycle accidents because they do not pay attention to their blind spots before changing lanes or they follow too closely behind a motorcyclist.
Aside from distracted drivers, the following are some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:
Bad weather conditions
Hazardous road conditions
Defective motorcycle parts
Animals crossing in the road
Motorcycle accidents often leave motorcyclists with catastrophic injuries, including the following:
Traumatic brain injuries
Spinal cord injuries
