Factors Contributing to Motorcycle Accidents
- There are a number of factors contributing to motorcycle accidents, including:
- Driver impairment
- Motor vehicle speed
- Road design
- Adverse weather and road conditions
- Vehicle maintenance and design
Our Milwaukee personal injury lawyers are experienced in how to review
the details of your motorcycle accident by considering these factors,
and assess the right course of action to obtain just and fair compensation
for your injuries. Motorcycle accidents can be even more traumatic than
crashes between two automobiles, due to the motorcycle's lack of external
protection. They are also smaller and easier to miss for negligent drivers.
Injuries resulting from these accidents are frequently severe and long-lasting,
and the victims have a right to fight for compensation.
- How to avoid some of the most serious road hazards for motorcycle riders:
Potholes - A pothole can cause a sudden bump or damage to the undercarriage of your
car. A pothole or other road defect on a motorcycle, however, can cause
a serious motorcycle accident and serious personal injury. While riding
your motorcycle, pay close attention to the road to avoid any potholes
or sections of damaged roadway.
Speeding - In any vehicle, speeding is dangerous. Speeding while on a motorcycle significantly
increases the chance of serious personal injury or even death. Slow down
and enjoy the ride when out on your motorcycle in Wisconsin.
Careless drivers - The hardest part about riding a motorcycle is dealing with careless drivers
who fail to share the rights of the road with motorcyclists. For your
personal safety, try to avoid drivers who speed, fail to stop or disobey
other traffic signs and signals.
Inexperience - Knowing your motorcycle well and how your motorcycle handles are critical
factors to your safety and the safety of your passenger. Be sure to take
a motorcycle driving course before you ride the open road.
