How Do Motorcycle Accidents Happen?

Defendants in motorcycle accident cases like to blame riders for everything. Some even go as far as to say that motorcyclists are “reckless by nature,” so they should be given liability for a wreck. Our Salem motorcycle attorney attorneys know the truth is often the opposite. An investigation into your crash could reveal clear evidence that the other driver or another third party caused it, not you.

Common factors that contribute to motorcycle accidents in Salem include:

  • Distracted driving: Drivers who are texting, talking on the phone, eating, or otherwise distracted may not see motorcyclists on the road.
  • Reckless driving: Speeding, tailgating, and other reckless driving behaviors can cause motorcycle accidents.
  • Road hazards: Potholes, debris on the road, and uneven pavement can cause motorcycles to lose control and crash.
  • Vehicle defects: Defective tires, brakes, or other mechanical issues can cause motorcycle accidents.

Both motorcyclists and drivers need to be aware of these common causes of motorcycle accidents to prevent them from happening in the first place. By being vigilant and following traffic laws, we can all help keep our roads safe for everyone.

How to Prove Liability in a Motorcycle Accident

When pursuing a motorcycle accident claim, it is important to gather as much evidence as possible to prove liability. Leave the investigation and evidence work up to our team, so you can keep resting and taking care of yourself.

Some types of evidence that can be used to support your claim:

  • Police reports: Police officers who respond to the scene of an accident will often create a report detailing their observations and findings. This report can provide valuable information about the circumstances of the accident.
  • Eyewitness testimony: Witnesses who saw the accident occur can provide testimony about what they saw, which can help establish fault.
  • Photographs and videos: Pictures or videos taken at the scene of the accident can provide visual evidence that may be used in court. Helmet cam footage is also highly useful.
  • Medical records: Medical records documenting injuries sustained in the accident can help establish the severity of damages suffered by the victim.
  • Expert opinions: Experts such as accident reconstruction specialists or medical professionals can provide opinions on how and why the accident occurred, as well as on any resulting injuries.

By gathering and presenting this type of evidence, we can work to prove liability in your motorcycle accident claim. The goal is to reduce your liability as much as possible, hopefully down to 0%, so you can receive the most compensation possible for your losses.
