Why Do Motorcycle Collisions Happen?
The accident may have happened so fast you don’t know what caused it. Your lawyers will find out what happened and also use this information to identify the negligent party. While there are many factors that can cause a collision, there are a few common situations that lead to motorcycle wrecks in Arizona.
- Left-Hand Turns. According to the NHTSA, 42% of fatal motorcycle accident crashes occurred at a left-hand turn. When motorists are turning left, they may not see the motorcyclist traveling straight through. This could be because they didn’t spot the motorcyclist or misjudged how fast they were going and thought there was time to make the turn.
- Speeding. A speeding driver may not have enough time to slow down or stop to avoid colliding with a biker. If a driver was going above the speed limit, the motorcyclist may sustain more severe injuries.
- Aggressive Driving. An aggressive driver may follow other motorcyclists too closely or cut them off when merging or changing lanes. If the driver is too close to the rider, they could bump the tire and knock the rider off balance.
- Distractions. If a driver is looking at their phone, changing the radio station, or dealing with another distraction in the car, then they may not see if traffic is slowing, stopping, or if a motorcyclist has pulled in front of them. The driver could cause a collision without even knowing they were going to crash.
The actions above show that the accident could have been prevented if the other driver hadn’t been reckless. The injuries you’ve sustained are because of their careless actions. The responsibility of financially recovering from these injuries shouldn’t fall on you. That’s where a Tucson, AZ motorcycle accident lawyer can help.
