What Are Common Causes of Weldon Spring, MO Motorcycle Accidents?

  • While the exact circumstances surrounding each accident are unique, in our experience, the following circumstances either cause or contribute to most motorcycle accidents:
  • Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs

    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 over a third of of motorcycle accident deaths.

    Road Hazards

    Because motorcycles have less of a base than other vehicles, road hazards such as uneven pavement, slick surfaces, potholes, and signs that limit visibility pose a heightened risk. If your accident was caused by a road hazard, the at-fault 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. This is often just a consequence of drivers failing to see motorcyclists, even if they're looking. This is caused by "inattentional blindness," a phenomenon in which our brains are more used to looking for cars than motorcycles.

    Speeding

    A third of motorcycle crash deaths had speeding as a contributing factor. While this is sometimes speeding on behalf of the motorcyclist, it often is the fault of passenger car drivers driving too fast to be able to maneuver around a motorcycle safely.

    Rear-End Accidents

    Motorcycles have a smaller breaking distance than passenger cars, and many motorcyclists use alternative breaking methods like rolling off the throttle, 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.
