What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in Nixa, MO?

  • While each accident is different, 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 a factor in over three-tenths of fatal motorcycle crashes.

    Road Hazards

    Because a car with 4 wheels is much more stable than a motorcycle, road hazards such as ruts in the road, slippery surfaces, potholes, and debris create an increased risk. If your accident was caused by a road hazard, the responsible party may be a government entity or construction company.

    Left-Hand Turns

    Over 40 percent of fatal motorcycle crashes occur at intersections when a passenger car turning left hits a motorcyclist going straight. It's hard for many people to notice motorcyclists, even if they're being diligent about safety. This is caused by "inattentional blindness," an occurrence in which our brains cannot notice a smaller vehicle like a motorcycle because of how much sensory information we receive as we drive.

    Speeding

    Over 30 percent of motorcycle fatalities had speeding as a contributing factor. While many of those crashes are caused by a speeding motorcycles, another culprit is passenger car drivers driving too fast to be able to maneuver around a motorcycle safely.

    Rear-End Accidents

    Motorcycles decelerate faster than passenger cars, and many motorcyclists downshift to come to a stop, 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.
