Some of the most common accidents involving motorcycles include:

  • Driving under the influence: Drunk drivers put themselves and other motorists in immediate danger. Motorcyclists are even more at risk of being injured or killed by a drunk driver than other motorists are. Drivers who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs may face both criminal liability and civil liability;
  • Unsafe or sudden lane changes: Drivers who negligently fail to check their mirrors before changing lanes may not see a motorcycle and cause a collision;
  • Car door collisions: Sometimes motorcycle accidents occur because a driver opens the door of their parked vehicle without checking for oncoming vehicles or motorcycles approaching from behind;
  • Speeding and other traffic law violations: Drivers who speed, run traffic lights, or otherwise fail to follow traffic laws can cause devastating traffic accidents;
  • Making left turns: Mistakes and misjudgments of distance during a left turn are common factors in motorcycle accidents. It is also common for drivers turning left to not see an approaching motorcycle due to its size and visual profile;
  • Hazardous road conditions: Road debris, crumbling asphalt, potholes, inadequate traffic signals, and other dangerous road conditions increase a motorcycle rider's chances of being injured or killed in an accident; and
  • Motorcycle defects: Sometimes a motorcycle crash is the result of a poorly designed or improperly manufactured motorcycle or defective motorcycle part.
