Danville & Lynchburg Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Protecting the Rights of Responsible Motorcyclists
Amongst all the types of vehicle operators on the road today, motorcyclists
are at the highest risk of suffering serious injury or
death when involved in an accident. This is largely due to the minimal protection
between them and the road. While wearing a protective helmet can significantly
decrease the risk, motorcyclists are still left vulnerable in a variety
of other ways.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Unfortunately, motorcyclists often get an unjustified bad rap from other
drivers. The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of them actually
operate their motorcycle in a very safe and responsible manner. Often
times, the cause of accidents involving these vehicles is due to other
drivers not knowing how to safely interact with them on the road. From
aggressive driving and tailgating to failing to see motorcycles, there
are numerous causes of accidents that are not the fault of the motorcyclist.
Some of the factors that are commonly involved in motorcycle accidents include:
- Tailgating and other forms of aggressive driving
- Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers speeding or breaking traffic laws
- Drivers failing to see motorcycles when changing lanes
- Drivers pulling out in front of a motorcycle rider
