What Are the Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents are either visibility (where the driver of a car did not see the motorcyclist) or the weather. Other causes include common types of accidents, such as when a motorcycle is rear-ended because someone was not paying attention.

The great majority of motorcycle accidents occur from visibility factors. We experience this all the time on the highways here in California — traffic is going very slowly, and all of a sudden you see a motorcycle pass between you and the other car to your left or right. Often, those motorcyclists get clipped by vehicles making lane changes or vehicles that stray a little too close to the lane divider. Visibility factors can be due to darkness, especially during bad weather conditions — cars are sliding and slipping, and visibility is poor.

Types of Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Some of the most common types of injuries in a motorcycle crash include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Broken Bones
  • Road rash
  • Head & neck injury
  • Lacerations
  • Knee & foot injury
  • Internal organ damage

Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Claims

  • medical expenses‚
  • lost wages‚
  • hospitalization‚
  • rehabilitative treatment‚
  • disability‚ pain and suffering
  • and mental anguish

Are There Any Special Laws that Are Enforced on Motorcycle Driver’s License Holders Only?

Generally, drivers have to pass classes to be able to drive a motorcycle in Chula Vista and other areas. They have to wear helmets. They have to have the right type of reflective gear. Other than that, there are no special laws that are enforced on motorcycle drivers.

Every driver of a motor vehicle in California has to obey the rules of the road, such as having functioning signal lights, taillights, and headlights. Those same rules of the road that are enforced on all drivers of motor vehicles are enforced on motorcycle drivers as well.

When the motorcyclists are passing slow or stopped traffic, there are special laws. For the motorcyclist to be able to obey the rules of the road and pass in between lanes between slow or stopped traffic, the traffic has to be moving at 35 miles an hour or less. That is why a lot of accidents happen when you do not expect a motorcyclist to be passing you.
