Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are small and fast and compared to vehicles. Perhaps these facts are exactly what makes accidents associated to motorcycles so deadly; they happen swiftly, and because a motorcycle leaves its rider(s) exposed, they’re usually susceptible to serious damages and even loss of life.

Causes

Just like motor vehicle accidents, most causes of motorcycle accidents are usually factors that can be prevented, but due to ignorance or negligence, most people do or omit them anyway and end up causing fatal road accidents.

Human causes. These are usually causes that are due to recklessness or carelessness of a motorcycle rider, negligence, drunk riding, over speeding, and even intentional distractions like calling while riding among others.

Natural causes. Not many natural causes lead to motorcycle accidents, but the same ones could cause motor vehicles accidents. They include bad weather and even harsh climatic conditions over a long time.

Other causes. These may include but are not limited to poor visibility of motorcyclists due to the small size of motorcycles and failure to wear high visibility clothing, sharing lanes with a fellow motorcyclist which may cause collisions upon sudden swerving of either or both parties, and blind spots which happen when sharing lanes with a vehicle and therefore reduce visibility for both the motorcyclist and the oncoming vehicle.

What You Should Do

If you’re not careful, you may not be able to raise a claim of compensation after a motorcycle accident. This is because proving fault may not be as easy as it is in motor vehicle accidents. You should, therefore, get legal representation, preferably of professional lawyers who understand what they’re doing and have had several years of experience dealing with such cases as yours.
