What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in Dardenne Prairie, MO?

  • While no two accidents are alike, our team has seen that the vast majority of motorcycle accidents fall into the following categories:
  • DUIs or DWIs

    Drunk driving accidents are the most common cause of motor vehicle accidents, and in the U.S. it kills approximately 32 people a day. Drunk driving was a factor in 34 percent of fatal motorcycle crashes.

    Road Hazards

    Because a car with 4 wheels is much more stable than a motorcycle, they are especially vulnerable to road hazards such as ruts in the road, inclement weather, potholes, and signs that limit visibility. Even if another motorist was not involved in your accident, if your injuries were caused by a road hazard, you may be able to make a claim against a government agency or construction company that was supposed to verify the road was safe for vehicle traffic.

    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. It's hard for many people to notice motorcyclists, even if they're looking. This is the result of "inattentional blindness," a phenomenon in which our brains are more used to looking for cars than motorcycles.

    Speeding

    A third of motorcycle fatalities involve speeding. While many of those crashes are caused by a speeding motorcycles, they can also be caused by car or truck drivers who force a biker to embark on emergency falls.

    Rear-End Accidents

    Motorcycles do not need as much room to break as cars or trucks, and many motorcyclists use alternative breaking methods like rolling off the throttle, meaning a trailing car won't see their brake lights. Still, just as in a crash between two cars or a car and a truck, the trailing has a responsibility to slow down in time.
