How Can I Tell if My Motorcycle Accident was Caused by Negligence?

motorcycle accidentAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 80,000 motorcyclists were injured in the United States in 2011 alone. As exciting and efficient as motorcycles can be, they also expose riders to a significant risk of bodily injury. Motorcyclists are at more of a risk for being thrown from their vehicles than other motorists, as they do not enjoy the protections of a vehicle body as do people driving cars or trucks.  As a result, motorcyclists can sustain extremely serious injuries in the event of a collision or other accident. It is imperative, therefore, for victims of motorcycle accidents to consult with an experienced Atlanta personal injury as soon as possible after an accident occurs.  Visit this page for more information on motorcycle accidents.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

In order to successfully recover after a motorcycle accident, victims must be able to establish that their accident was the result of negligence. In the context of motor vehicle accidents, legal negligence occurs when a driver fails to exercise the care that would normally be exercised by a reasonable person in the same or similar circumstances. Some of the more common ways that driver negligence leads to motorcycle accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Distracted driving
  • Loss of vehicle control
  • Ignoring poor weather conditions
  • Fatigued driving
  • Failure to observe traffic signals
  • Failure to signal
  • Improper vehicle maintenance
  • Defectively vehicle manufacture

After a motorcycle accident, it is extremely important to have the facts of your case reviewed by an attorney in order to determine whether any evidence of negligence exists. There are many different parties that could potentially be held liable in a motorcycle accident case, depending on the cause. These parties could include other drivers, the government entity responsible for road maintenance where your accident occurred, vehicle manufacturers, or motorcycle equipment manufacturers.
