What Are Some of the Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?
Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can be quite severe, given the fewer protections a motorcyclist has compared to a driver in a standard passenger car. Motorcyclists are at greater risk of injuries such as spinal cord injuries, disfigurement, fractures, traumatic brain injuries and road rash, among others.
The causes of these accidents can vary. Here’s a quick sampling of some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Failure to yield: Far and away the most common type of motorcycle accident is a failure to yield accident, specifically cars making left-hand turns and not seeing motorcyclists coming. Some research indicates these accidents account for 42 percent of motorcycle crashes. It’s always important to watch for motorcycles on the road, especially when the weather is nice, because they’re not always as easy to notice as other vehicles.
Driver error: Motorcycles are more likely to be affected by the errors of other drivers such as texting while driving as well as driving while intoxicated.
Speeding: Excessive speed is one of the most common causes of accidents of all types.
