Motorcycle riders live for the freedom and independence of a ride on their bikes but the Little Rock, Arkansas auto accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Alan LeVardeem it prudent to remind everyone on the road of the added dangers present around motorcycles.
Regardless of whether you drive a car or truck or ride a motorcycle, it can help to understand the inherent road dangers regarding motorcycles. Here are some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents, according to the biker enthusiast magazine RideApart:
Common Motorcycle Accident Cause No. 1: The motorcycle rider gets cut-off by a left-turning car that fails to see the bike or incorrectly gauges the speed at which the bike is traveling.
Common Motorcycle Accident Cause No. 2: The bike “hits gravel on a blind corner.” Motorcycle riders can avoid this common pitfall by traveling at a speed that allows them ample reaction time.
Common Motorcycle Accident Cause No. 3: The motorcycle takes a corner while traveling too fast.
Common Motorcycle Accident Cause No. 4: A car changes lanes without seeing the motorcycle (because it’s in the car’s blind spot) and subsequently cuts off the rider.
Common Motorcycle Accident Cause No. 5: A car rear-ends the motorcycle. In a flash, what might have been a fender-bender between two cars can become a deadly situation for a motorcycle rider.
