Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can occur for any number of reasons. However, the majority of these accidents are caused by the negligence of other motorists on the road. When another motorist fails to operate their vehicle safely and/or follow the rules of the road, it can lead to a serious accident and catastrophic injuries for motorcyclists.

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Left-Turn Accidents: These are the most common type of motorcycle accidents and often occur when a motorist turns left in front of a motorcyclist at an intersection, driveway, or parking lot.
  • Unsafe Lane Changes: Motorists are required to look in their mirrors and check their blind spots before changing lanes. When they fail to do so or when they do not see a motorcycle, it can result in a serious collision.
  • Speeding: Speeding is a common cause of all types of traffic accidents, including motorcycle crashes. When a motorist is speeding, they have less time to react to a potential hazard.
  • Drunk Driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is illegal and can result in serious criminal penalties. When a drunk driver causes a motorcycle accident, they can also be held liable for the victim's damages in a civil lawsuit.
  • Distracted Driving: When a motorist is using their cellphone, eating, drinking, talking to passengers, or engaging in any other activity that takes their attention away from the road, it is considered distracted driving. This can cause them to collide with a motorcyclist.
  • Motorcycle Lane Splitting: Lane splitting is the practice of riding a motorcycle between two lanes of traffic, usually in slow-moving or stopped traffic. This is illegal in Florida and can result in a motorcycle accident.
  • Motorcycle Defects: Sometimes, motorcycle accidents are caused by defects in the motorcycle itself. This could include defects in the design of the motorcycle, defects in motorcycle parts, or even defects in the motorcycle's tires.
  • Motorcycle Road Hazards: Motorcycles are more vulnerable to certain road hazards than other vehicles. This includes potholes, uneven pavement, debris in the road, and more. When a motorcyclist encounters a road hazard, it can cause them to lose control of their bike and crash.

How Can a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Help?

Motorcycle accident claims can be complex, and recovering the compensation you are entitled to is rarely easy. Insurance companies are not on your side, and they will do everything they can to minimize your claim or deny it altogether. An experienced Tampa motorcycle accident lawyer can help you navigate the process, gather evidence, build a strong case, and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.

At Michles & Booth, we can help you with all aspects of your motorcycle accident claim, including:

  • Investigating the Accident: We will thoroughly investigate your motorcycle accident to determine who is at fault and gather the necessary evidence to prove it. This may include reviewing the police report, interviewing witnesses, reviewing traffic camera footage, and more.
  • Calculating Your Damages: Our Tampa motorcycle accident attorneys will work with your doctors and other experts to understand the full extent of your injuries and how they will affect your life. We will then seek the maximum compensation you are entitled to for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
  • Negotiating with the Insurance Company: Insurance companies are not on your side, and they will do everything they can to minimize your claim. Our lawyers know the tactics that insurance companies use, and we will not let them take advantage of you. We are skilled negotiators and will fight for a fair settlement on your behalf.
  • Taking Your Case to Trial: While most motorcycle accident claims are settled out of court, this is not always possible. If the insurance company refuses to make a fair offer, our trial lawyers are not afraid to take your case to court. We have extensive trial experience and are known for our outstanding results in the courtroom.
  • Handling All Communication: After a motorcycle accident, the insurance company and the other driver's attorney may try to reach out to you for a statement. You should never talk to the insurance company without your attorney present. Our lawyers will handle all communication with the insurance company and the other driver's attorney on your behalf.
