Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Though any time of year is great for taking your car out for a spin, spring and warmer weather means it’s time to bring the motorcycle out of storage and enjoy the outdoors. Not only is it a fun and exciting way to travel, but riding a motorcycle allows you to experience the road like no other way possible. Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle can also be dangerous due to the exposure you are forced to endure while sharing the road with much larger and more powerful vehicles. The injuries in motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic, with the possibility of excessive medical bills, pain and suffering, and even death.

If you have suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your bills and other expenses by filing a Georgia personal injury claim. The best way to receive the recovery you deserve is to schedule a consultation with the experienced Peachtree City personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Shane Smith as soon as possible.

How are Some Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

Riding a motorcycle can unfortunately be dangerous to its exposed nature. Motorcyclists wear helmets and padding, but it’s possible that isn’t enough to protect you in a serious accident due to another’s negligence. Some common causes of motorcycle accidents are:

  • Drivers appearing in your path
  • Drivers turning across your path
  • Drivers failing to see you in the next lane over
  • Drivers breaking suddenly
  • Improperly kept roads
  • Motorists colliding with the back of the motorcycle
  • Drivers and passengers opening doors in the path of a motorcycle
  • Drivers suddenly changing lanes
  • Debris in the road
