What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in Imperial, MO?

  • While the specific circumstances surrounding each accident are unique, in our experience, the following circumstances either cause or contribute to most motorcycle accidents:
  • Drunk Driving

    Drunk driving accidents are the most common cause of motor vehicle accidents, and in the U.S. it kills roughly one person every 45 minutes. Drunk driving was a factor in over three-tenths of motorcycle fatalities.

    Road Hazards

    Because a car with 4 wheels is much more stable than one with 2 wheels, road hazards such as uneven pavement, slippery surfaces, potholes, and debris create an increased risk. 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 a motorcycle driving straight ahead is struck by a vehicle turning left. It's hard for many people to notice motorcyclists, even if they're being diligent about safety. This is due to something called "inattentional blindness," an occurrence in which our brains are scanning for cars, but don't register motorcycles at cars.

    Speeding

    Thirty-three percent of motorcycle crash deaths involve speeding. While many of those crashes are caused by a speeding motorcycles, another culprit is car or truck drivers who force a biker to embark on emergency falls.

    Rear-End Accidents

    Motorcycles have a smaller breaking distance than passenger cars, and many motorcyclists roll off the throttle to slow down, so a motorist behind them won't see the passenger car. Still, just as in a crash between two cars, the trailing has a responsibility to slow down in time.
