Types of motorcycle accidents
IMPROPER LANE CHANGES
Many times drivers of cars and trucks do not see motorcycles in the other lane and negligently change lanes into the lane of motorcycles. This is one of the most common reasons for motorcycle accidents.
LEFT TURN ACCIDENTS
Because motorcycles are small and less visible than cars and trucks, there is a higher chance that other drivers will not see motorcycles as they make left turns. Unfortunately, these types of accidents can have devastating consequences due to the speed at which they occur.
DISTRACTED DRIVING ACCIDENTS
Since motorcycles are more difficult to see due to their size, distracted drivers such as those who are texting and driving will notice motorcycles even less, making motorcycle drivers more at risk for becoming victims of distracted driving accidents.
Motorcycles are able to slow down much quicker than a car or truck, so drivers used to slowing down behind cars and trucks will have less time to stop behind a motorcycle. This can result in a rear-end collision. Other factors leading to rear-end collisions with motorcycles can be someone who is under the influence whose reaction time is impaired, or someone who is speeding who is not prepared to stop in time behind a motorcycle.
