Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can result from a number of negligent acts. The most common causal factors reporting officers cite include: 

  • Unsafe speed
  • Driver inexperience
  • Driver inattention or distraction
  • Failure to yield right of way

Alcohol plays a significant role in fatal motorcycle accidents. Pursuant to state law, drivers who die in traffic collisions must be tested for blood alcohol content. In 2005 forty-five percent of the motorcycle drivers killed in traffic collisions tested positive for alcohol, and nearly one third of those tested had blood alcohol levels which exceeded the legal limits.

Motorcycle Accident Damages Recovery

Most motorcycle accident claims are based on negligence law. “Negligence is the failure to exercise such care as persons of ordinary prudence usually exercise under similar circumstances” — Mingo v. Extrand, 230 N.W. 895, 896 (Minn. 1930). 

Generally, when a driver operates his or her vehicle in a negligent manner, he or she may be required to pay for any damages resulting from such negligence.
