What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in Town and Country, MO?

  • While no two accidents are alike, our team has seen that the vast majority of motorcycle accidents fall into the following categories:
  • Drunk Driving

    Drunk driving accidents are the most common type of traffic-related accidents, and in the U.S. it kills approximately one person every three quarters of an hour. Drunk driving contributed to over a third of 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 uneven pavement, inclement weather, potholes, and gravel. 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 responsible for maintaining the road.

    Left-Hand Turns

    Almost 50 percent of motorcycle accidents that cause death occur at intersections when a car or truck turning left hits a motorcyclist who had the right of way. Motorcycles escape many people's attention, even if they're judiciously checking their blind spots. This is due to something called "inattentional blindness," an occurrence in which our brains cannot notice a smaller vehicle like a motorcycle because of our limited ability to take in sensory information only lets us see cars and trucks.

    Speeding

    Thirty-three percent of motorcycle crash deaths had speeding as a contributing factor. While some bikers are known to speed, it often is the fault of enclosed-vehicle motorists 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 other vehicles, and many motorcyclists roll off the throttle 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.
