Even careful motorcyclists face dangers on the road every time they ride. Motorcycle accident injuries can be serious and life altering, and the causes of accidents are often different than other types of motor vehicle crashes. If you’ve been injured on a bike in Missouri or Southern Illinois, it’s important to hire a lawyer who understands bikers and the causes of motorcycle accidents.

3 Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Three common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  1. Failure to Yield at Intersections
    Motorists sometimes fail to yield to motorcycles at intersections, pulling in front of them or making blind left turns without giving bikers the right of way.
  2. Lack of Rider Visibility
    Weather conditions, blind spots, and other factors can lead to motorcycle accidents when motorists fail to see bikers around their cars or trucks.
  3. Roadway Defects
    Deteriorating roads can create conditions that make it difficult for bikers to maintain control of their motorcycles.

Even if your wreck wasn’t your fault, insurance companies may try to offer you less than your claim is worth. Our St. Louis motorcycle accident lawyers will be aggressive in getting you the best result for your claim, through trial or settlement.
