In collisions where another motorcycle or vehicle driver is involved, the most common cause of motorcycle accidents is vehicle driver turning errors. These types of driving errors occur when the vehicle driver turns left into a motorcyclist driving straight. 42% of reported collisions in 2017 were of this nature, according to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) in their Traffic Safety report. Uncovering the cause of the motorcycle accident, whether common or not, that led to your injuries or to a loved one’s loss of life is important.
When you or a member of your family are injured in a motorcycle accident, possibly due to a driver who did not share the road, you want and deserve answers. Among the many questions you might have, what caused the accident that led to your severe injuries or a loved one’s death is likely at the top of the list. Understanding the cause of your accident and related injuries can bolster your legal and financial recovery.
