Who and What Cause Motorcycle Accidents?
40% of motorcycle crashes are single-vehicle accidents. The other 60%, however, are often caused by other drivers. When someone is operating a motor vehicle, they owe a duty of care to those around them. They fulfill this duty by following traffic laws, driving cautiously, and paying attention to their surroundings. If they fail to exhibit reasonable care, they can be held civilly accountable.
Dangerous driving behaviors that often contribute to motorcycle accidents:
- Unsafe lane changes
- Failure to check blind spots
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Driving under the influence
- Right-of-way errors
- Distracted drivers
If you have been harmed or lost a loved one due to someone’s inattention or careless error, you should hold them accountable. Our attorneys are here to help you get the justice you deserve.
