Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

What causes motorcycle accidents in Laredo and across Texas? Some causes of motorcycle crashes are more common than others. Sometimes, drivers may claim they simply "failed to see" a motorcyclist. Other times, drivers may be drunk or paying more attention to their cell phones than the road ahead. The most frequent causes of motorcycle accidents include the following:

  • Reckless driving. A driver might be speeding, driving drunk, or driving while distracted, which can lead to a collision with a motorcycle.
  • Sudden lane changes. When drivers fail to check their blind spots or change lanes illegally, they immediately endanger motorcyclists - along with all other drivers sharing the road.
  • Low visibility. Drivers are all responsible for adapting to reduced visibility conditions, especially if fog, rain, or other precipitation is involved. Failure of drivers to adapt to the conditions could have grave consequences.
  • Traffic/congestion. Stop-and-go traffic can easily lead to drivers becoming frustrated and distracted. They may take their eyes off the road to tune a radio or drive aggressively when a space opens up in a traffic jam, which can put motorcycle riders at risk.
  • Motorcycle defects or road defects. Road defects, such as bumps, potholes, gashes, loose gravel or debris can cause a biker to take a spill. Our experts also can investigate to determine if motorcycle defects or motorcycle part defects such as malfunctioning brakes or tires were factors in the accident.

No matter how your accident happened, the long-term physical, emotional and financial effects can be devastating.
