Why Do Motorcycle Accidents Happen in Camdenton, MO?

  • While each accident is different, our team has seen that the vast majority of motorcycle accidents fall into the following categories:
  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs

    Drunk driving accidents are the most common type of traffic-related accidents, and in the U.S. it kills approximately 32 people a day. Drunk driving was a factor in over three-tenths of fatal motorcycle crashes.

    Road Hazards

    Because a car with 4 wheels is much more stable than one with 2 wheels, road hazards such as uneven pavement, inclement weather, potholes, and debris create a heightened risk. If your accident was caused by a road hazard, the responsible party may be a government entity or construction company.

    Left-Hand Turns

    Almost 50 percent of motorcycle accidents that result in death occur when a vehicle turns left and hits a motorcyclist going straight. Motorcycles escape many people's attention, even if they're judiciously checking their blind spots. This is caused by "inattentional blindness," an occurrence in which our brains are more used to looking for cars than motorcycles.

    Speeding

    Over 30 percent of motorcycle crash deaths involve speeding. While many of those crashes are caused by a speeding motorcycles, it often is the fault of enclosed-vehicle motorists who force a biker to embark on emergency falls.

    Rear-End Accidents

    Motorcycles have a smaller breaking distance than cars or trucks, and many motorcyclists roll off the throttle to break, 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.
