What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in Marlborough, MO?

  • While the specific causes leading up to an accident are unique, in our experience, the vast majority of motorcycle accidents fall into the following categories:
  • DUIs or DWIs

    Drunk driving accidents are the most common cause of traffic-related accidents, and in the U.S. it kills approximately 32 people a day. 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 gravel. If your accident was caused by a road hazard, the liable party may be a government entity or construction company.

    Left-Hand Turns

    Forty-two percent 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 caused by "inattentional blindness," a phenomenon in which our brains scan for cars but has not been sufficiently trained to scan for motorcycles.

    Speeding

    Over 30 percent of motorcycle crash deaths involve speeding. While some bikers are known to speed, another culprit is 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 downshift to break, preventing the break lights from coming on. Still, just as in a crash between two cars or a car and a truck, the trailing vehicle is almost always at complete fault for the accident.
