Causes of Motorcycle Crashes

Motorists must share the roads with motorcycle riders safely. However, this does not always occur. Because motorcyclists may be more difficult to see, collisions between these two parties may occur if one is not vigilant enough and a motorcycle travels in their car’s blind spot. As a result, human error is responsible for most accidents involving motorcycles. In addition to negligent drivers, these accidents may occur because of carelessness on the motorcyclist, vehicle mechanic, vehicle manufacturer, or other parties. Some are contributing factors in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield at intersections and other rights of way
  • Careless lane changes
  • Careless left-hand turns
  • Defective vehicle parts
  • Unsafe roadways, caused by potholes or other obstructions in the road
  • Weather-related problems, such as slipping or icy roads

After a crash, it is crucial to determine the cause and who is legally at fault. In some situations, more than one party may bear legal responsibility for the crash. An experienced local attorney could help determine causation and prove liability in a motorcycle accident. In the event that more than one person likely caused the crash, a lawyer could meet and negotiate with multiple insurance companies and pursue a legal claim against all responsible parties to maximize the chances for a favorable damages award.

What Happens When a Motorcyclist is Partially to Blame for a Crash?

State law requires riders to obey motorcycle-specific rules in addition to the general state rules of the road. State courts may reduce the amount of recoverable damages if a defendant is able to prove that a claimant broke the law and that this violation contributed either to the accident itself or to the degree of severity of the injuries sustained.

For example, it is illegal to split lanes with a car in Colorado. If a defendant can prove that they accidentally sideswiped the claimant because they tried to illegally pass the defendant’s car in the same lane, a court may either entirely bar or limit damage recovery of the motorcycle rider. The court could prohibit damage recovery for the motorcycle rider if they determine that the party’s breach of the law was more than 50 percent responsible for the crash. If the court determines that the rider’s attempt to pass illegally was less than 50% of the cause of the accident, the court may still award damages. However, in this situation, the court may reduce the motorcyclist’s recoverable damages by their percentage of fault. It can be challenging to understand the complexities of comparative fault, which is why working with a dedicated Castle Rock lawyer can be invaluable following a motorcycle accident.
