Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are alarmingly common in Cleveland and across the entire state of Ohio. Every day, riders are injured through no fault of their own because of the careless disregard shown by many motorists. Below are common factors that contribute to motorcycle crashes.
Motorcycles are generally more challenging to see than other cars. When a motorist isn’t paying attention, they may not notice the rider until it’s too late. A head-on collision most often occurs in a lane departure incident caused by unsafe passing on a two-lane road, distracted driving, speeding, or driving under the influence.
One of the most common causes of Cleveland motorcycle accidents is unsafe left-hand turns. These collisions typically occur when a motorist turns left into the path of an oncoming motorcycle. Motorcyclists are at a much higher risk of being involved in a left-turn accident because they are not as visible as larger vehicles
Unsafe lane changes
Unsafe lane changes are a frequent cause of motorcycle crashes. When a motorist changes lanes quickly, fails to look in his or her blind spot, or fails to signal, the driver may collide with a motorcycle. The rider may be side-swiped or forced to veer out of their lane into another vehicle, a fixed object, or oncoming traffic.
Failure to yield
Failure to yield motorcycle accidents generally happen when a motorist is simply not paying attention and fails to yield the right of way to the rider. However, aggressive driving, driver impairment, and distracted driving, can also contribute to a failure to yield crash.
Driving under the influence (DUI)
When a motorist is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, their vision, judgment, coordination, and reaction time are impaired. Drunk drivers pose a grave threat to motorcyclists due to the rider’s lack of protection and often cause catastrophic, sometimes fatal, injuries.
