Types of Motorcycle Accidents
Motor vehicle drivers are required to exercise the same level of care towards motorcyclists as they are towards any car or truck that might be sharing the roadway. Many motorcycle accidents (aside from reckless driving on behalf of the biker) are caused by negligence on the part of a motor vehicle driver. Some common instances include:
- The Driver Claims to Not Have Seen The Motorcycle
- Failure to Yield or Signal
- Swinging Car Doors
- Failure to Look During Turns
- Reckless Driving
- Driving While Intoxicated/Under the Influence
It is also important to note that motorcycle accidents can happen as a result of other reasons as well, such as a defective motorcycle part or obstructions in the road. In these cases you still may have a personal injury claim you can file. The Kaufmann Law Offices can help you to start the process immediately.
