Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are at a great risk of injury or death if they are involved in traffic accidents. Even when wearing helmets and other protective gear, riders are simply at a higher risk of injury than occupants of cars, trucks, and other vehicles. Like any traffic accident, a motorcycle collision may have one or more causes. It is important to identify the primary cause so fault can be assigned to the appropriate party.
The following are examples of factors that could contribute to a motorcycle accident:
- Heavy weather
- Dangerous roadways
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs
- Defective bike or auto parts
- Lack of skill and licensing
- Aggressive or reckless driving
Motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to be involved in fatal crashes. With our experience in motorcycle accident claims and lawsuits, we are confident in our ability to uncover the cause of your collision.
Proving Liability For a Motorcycle Accident in Florida
There are many factors that contribute to liability in a motorcycle accident. Because Florida adheres to comparative negligence law, each individual involved in an accident could potentially be partially at fault and therefore partially liable for the damages.
For example, if a motorcyclist were to cause a vehicle to swerve into another lane and hit another car, then the motorcyclist could be held partially liable for that accident. With that said, oftentimes motorcyclists share no responsibility for an accident, and if you were seriously injured in an accident caused by another driver's recklessness or negligence, you should not be left paying the bills. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help defend your rights and fight for your maximum compensation.
