Experienced Personal Injury Attorneys Represent Clients Hurt in Many Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents throughout the United States
The statistics are in – and they are sobering. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are five times more likely to be seriously injured in an accident than those in car crashes. Further, bikers are 26 times more likely to die in a crash than people in a car accident. There are many reasons why motorcycle accidents occur and many of them involve the driver of the other vehicle simply “not seeing” the biker.
Unfortunately, regardless of the reasons motorcycle accidents happen, most have one thing in common. The injuries sustained by a surviving biker can be very severe and impact them for the rest of their lives.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Crashes in the US
As we have investigated the causes of our clients’ motorcycle accidents over the years, certain themes have emerged. Over time, our motorcycle accident lawyers have discovered that, in general, many motorcycle crashes occur for reasons such as these:
The Driver of the Other Vehicle Didn’t See the Motorcycle: This, unfortunately, is a common cause of accidents. Bikes are smaller and easily hidden in blind spots.
Failure to Yield: The driver of a car, truck or bus — or another motorcycle rider — fails to yield to our client at highway entrance and exit ramps; at entrances and exits to gas stations, parking lots and parking garages; on city streets, county roads and state highways — when changing lanes, turning left or approaching intersections controlled by red lights or stop signs. After an accident, these drivers often claim that they had not seen the motorcycle before the crash.
Distracted Driving: Drivers of cars, trucks and buses are distracted while driving, either talking on cell phones, texting or referring to GPS (global positioning system) devices.
Roadway Hazards: Weather and roadway conditions can play a significant role in how an accident occurs
Merchandise: Defective motorcycle components and defective helmets can cause serious crashes
