Many motorcycle accidents occur because of another driver’s negligence. Many drivers state, “I didn’t see him.”
The most common motorcycle accident occurs when another driver impacts the front of the motorcycle in a head-on or turning left in front of the motorcycle scenario. Statistics show that front impact is responsible for about 25% of all motorcycle accidents and 375 of fatal motorcycle accidents.
The majority of motorcycle accidents involving other vehicles are caused by driver negligence. Other accident causes include turning out of a parking lot into a motorcycle, turning from an intersection into a motorcycle or failing to yield right-of-way at a four-way stop or other traffic control device.
