A motorcycle is small compared to a car or truck so when a motorcycle accident takes place it can cause a lot of damage to the motorcycle and the driver. Any injuries sustained are likely to be quite severe. At Brian Elston Law firm motorcycle accident attorney will build a case that will get you the compensation you deserve for the injuries you sustained in a motorcycle accident.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
One common cause of motorcycle accidents is when a driver in a larger vehicle fails to see a motorcyclist and hits the motorcycle. This is considered negligent driving because it is the duty of any driver to lookout for other vehicles, regardless of how small they may be.
Another common cause of these accidents is the action of other motorcyclists. When motorcyclists drive erratically they tend to cause accidents.
Hazardous road conditions are particularly challenging for motorcyclists such as wet weather, ice, potholes and poorly maintained roads. A motorcyclist may lose control of their bike because of inclement weather.
