Why Do Motorcycle Accidents Happen in Arnold, MO?

  • While no two accidents are alike, in our experience, the vast majority of motorcycle accidents fall into the following categories:
  • Drunk Driving

    Drunk driving accidents are the most common type of motor vehicle accidents, and in the U.S. it kills about one person every three quarters of an hour. Drunk driving contributed to 34 percent of motorcycle fatalities.

    Road Hazards

    Because motorcycles only have two wheels, they are especially vulnerable to road hazards such as ruts in the road, slick surfaces, potholes, and gravel. If your accident was caused by a road hazard, the liable party may be a government entity or construction company.

    Left-Hand Turns

    Almost half of of fatal motorcycle crashes occur when a vehicle turns left and hits a motorcyclist going straight. It's hard for many people to notice motorcyclists, even if they're looking. This is due to something called "inattentional blindness," a phenomenon in which our brains are more used to looking for cars than motorcycles.

    Speeding

    Over 30 percent of motorcycle crash deaths had speeding as a contributing factor. While many of those crashes are caused by a speeding motorcycles, they can also be caused by enclosed-vehicle motorists driving too fast to be able to maneuver around a motorcycle safely.

    Rear-End Accidents

    Motorcycles decelerate faster than cars or trucks, and many motorcyclists use alternative breaking methods like downshifting, so a motorist behind them won't see the passenger car. It is still the responsibility of the other vehicle to give you enough space to break safely.
