Arizona Motorcycle Accident Law Firm
Statistics show motorcyclists have a 50 percent higher chance of being involved in an accident than automobile drivers. According to the National Traffic Safety Administration, the number of motorcycle crash-related fatalities has more than doubled over the past decade.
Common Motorcycle Accident Causes in Arizona:
Failure to Yield: Drivers waiting to make a left turn at a light do not see the motorcycle coming and will turn, causing an accident. If the driver does see the motorcyclist, they may still turn, believing they have enough time. The insurance company will try to place the blame on the motorcyclist even though it may be the other driver’s fault.
Lane-Splitting: Motorcycle lane-splitting could soon be legal in Arizona. Lane splitting often results in accidents.
Inattentive Drivers:Cell phones and other distractions can result in serious injuries. The size difference between motorcycles and automobiles means serious injuries for the motorcyclists.
Hazardous Road Conditions: Construction zones, gravel, and potholes can all cause serious accidents, especially if warning signs are not in place.
Manufacturer Defects: Poor design and manufacturing can result in instability, which can put a motorcyclist’s life at risk.
