Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are, unfortunately, relatively common. While many people maintain a false belief that motorcyclists are risky, dangerous drivers, the truth is that most motorcycle accidents result from the negligence of others. Many motorists are not looking out for motorcycles, or they may act aggressively or recklessly around them. This can cause serious accidents, resulting in catastrophic injuries and, in the most tragic of cases, fatalities.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Texting while driving
- Drunk driving
- Fatigued/sleepy driving
- Traffic law violations
- Failure to yield
- Unsafe turns/merging
- Unlawful passing
- Following too closely
- Dangerous lane changes
- Reckless or aggressive driving
- Road rage
- Inexperienced motorists
- Defective road design or construction
- Defective vehicles/parts
Any time another person or party—whether it’s a fellow motorist on the road, the manufacturer of a defective motorcycle, or a construction company responsible for building a faulty roadway—is negligent and someone else is hurt, the injured party is entitled to seek fair financial compensation for their losses under Georgia personal injury law.
It’s important that you act quickly if you believe your injuries or the death of your loved one was caused by another’s negligence; in Georgia, you only have two years from the date of the accident, injury, or death to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim. There are very few exceptions, so do not wait to contact our experienced legal team for help with your case.
