What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in Lebanon, MO?

  • While each accident is different, in our experience, the following circumstances either cause or contribute to most motorcycle accidents:
  • 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 45 minutes. Drunk driving was found to be involved in 34 percent of fatal motorcycle crashes.

    Road Hazards

    Because motorcycles have less of a base than other vehicles, they are especially vulnerable to road hazards such as ruts in the road, slick surfaces, potholes, and signs that limit visibility. If your accident was caused by a road hazard, the liable party may be a government entity or construction company.

    Left-Hand Turns

    Over 40 percent of motorcycle accidents that lead to death occur when a vehicle turns left and hits a motorcyclist going straight. Motorcycles escape many people's attention, 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 crash deaths were caused at least in part by speeding. While this is sometimes speeding on behalf of the motorcyclist, another culprit is passenger car drivers who force a biker to take evasive action.

    Rear-End Accidents

    Motorcycles have a smaller breaking distance than other vehicles, and many motorcyclists use alternative breaking methods like rolling off the throttle, preventing the break lights from coming on. It is still the responsibility of the other vehicle to slow down in time.
