What Are Common Causes of Shrewsbury, MO Motorcycle Accidents?

  • While the specific causes leading up to an 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 type 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 accident deaths.

    Road Hazards

    Because a car with 4 wheels is much more stable than a motorcycle, road hazards such as uneven pavement, inclement weather, potholes, and signs that limit visibility create an increased risk. If your accident was caused by a road hazard, the liable party may be a government entity or construction company.

    Left-Hand Turns

    Almost 50 percent of motorcycle accidents that cause death occur a motorcycle driving straight ahead is struck by a vehicle turning left. This is often just a consequence of drivers failing to see motorcyclists, even if they're judiciously checking their blind spots. This is due to something called "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 fatalities had speeding as a contributing factor. While many of those crashes are caused by a speeding motorcycles, it often is the fault of car or truck drivers driving too fast to be able to maneuver around a motorcycle safely.

    Rear-End Accidents

    Motorcycles do not need as much room to break as passenger cars, and many motorcyclists downshift to break, so a motorist behind them won't see the passenger car. Still, just as in a crash between two cars, the driver behind the other vehicle is almost always at complete fault for the accident.
