Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
One of the main causes of motorcycle accidents is that motorists fail to see motorcycles in traffic. What’s worse is that the motorcycle rider bears the highest chance of being serious or catastrophically injured or killed.
Common reasons for motorcycle accidents include:
- Driver failing to stop at signs or signals
- Driver turning left into the path of an oncoming motorcycle
- Driver speeding with the inability to stop in time
- Improper lane changes
- Driver distraction/inattention
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Failing to yield
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are often more extreme than injuries suffered in a regular car accident, namely because motorcyclists are more exposed. Some of the most common types of motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Road rash
- Broken or fractured bones
- Spinal cord injuries
