Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Insight from Our Boca Raton Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney
No matter how safely or defensively you drive, you can’t control what other drivers do and because of that — driving always involves a certain amount of danger and risk. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that motorcyclists are more than 10 times more likely to die in a crash than a passenger in an auto accident.

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
The most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Failing to yield to a motorcyclist’s right-of-way (typically seen with cars or trucks taking left turns at intersections)
- Careless lane changes
- Road defects
- Recklessness (excessive speeding, drinking and driving, etc.)
- Inclement weather
- Motorcycle design or part defects
When there is a motorcycle accident, the results are often devastating. Victims are often left with serious injuries, brain injury, or permanent disabilities; many do not survive. We fight aggressively to help make sure that our clients are fully compensated for their injuries and other losses.
