Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

The question of what caused a motorcycle accident will play an important role in a related personal injury or wrongful death claim. It may affect the amount of financial compensation a victim may receive, as well as from what resources this compensation can be sought out.

Below are some common causes that your lawyer may explore in relation to your motorcycle accident:

  • Driver negligence: a distracted driver, a drunk driver, or a motorist who was speeding, driving recklessly or otherwise violating traffic laws, such as pulling in the path of a rider.
  • Faulty road construction: a poorly designed or maintained highway, intersection or city street may cause a hazardous situation that results in a motorcycle accident.
  • Poor weather conditions: weather conditions like heavy rain, hail, strong winds, or snow and ice on the roadway can all cause a motorcycle accident to occur.
  • Equipment failure: a defective motorcycle part or other equipment failure may lead to an accident, such as a brake, chain, tire, frame or steering failure.

The cause of an accident will determine what party a victim can file a personal injury claim against. For example, if another driver was speeding and caused a motorcycle accident in this way, that driver would be held legally accountable for the accident. If a defective motorcycle part or tire blowout caused the accident, however, the manufacturer or distributor of that part may be held liable.

What to Do After a Serious Motorcycle Accident

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, there are specific actions you can take to help ensure that you do not have a negative impact on the outcome of your case:

  • Remain at the scene of the accident.
  • Offer medical assistance to anyone in need.
  • Exchange driver and insurance information with the other driver involved.
  • Take pictures at the scene and get the information of any witnesses present.
  • Be sure that you seek medical attention.
  • Do not talk to the other driver's insurance company, even if they contact you.
  • Do not discuss who was at fault with law enforcement.
  • Contact a lawyer as soon as possible.

Should you contact your insurance company after an accident? It depends on whose fault the accident was. If the accident was your fault, you must give the other motorist your insurance information and they will contact your insurance company. If the motorcycle accident was another motorist's fault, then you should be sure to get their insurance information and contact their insurance to file a claim.

Don't go through this process alone. Insurance companies will try to pay individuals the least amount of money possible to settle their case quickly. Many times, the initial amount offered does not cover unexpected costs, such as follow up doctor appointments, latent medical conditions, or future lost wages. As Orange County injury lawyers, we will pursue the most amount of compensation available for you. We will not settle.
