Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Many people believe motorcycle accidents are the result of motorcyclists driving recklessly. This, however, could not be more untrue.

Approximately two-thirds of motorcycle accidents are caused, not by motorcyclists, but by other drivers on the road. Learn about the common causes of motorcycle accidents to protect yourself as a rider.

Most Motorcycle Accidents Are Caused by Other Drivers

The majority of motorcycle accidents happen when passenger vehicle drivers do not check their blind spots before changing lanes or pulling out from a parking spot or other stopped position. This results in them often running into motorcyclists who had the right of way.

Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Wet or icy weather conditions
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Left turns at intersections

These incidents and resulting accidents may leave motorcyclists with serious injuries, including the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Road rash
