Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Based on our experience representing injured bikers, we can confidently assert that the majority of motorcycle accidents occurring in Albuquerque are caused by another driver's mistake, negligence, or inattentive driving.

Despite this fact, the insurance company will likely try to place a portion of the fault with the motorcyclist. Usually this is a result of a bias against motorcyclists or a faulty witness statement. (Because of their size, motorcycles play tricks on our eyes; it appears they are moving much faster than they actually are.)

Our investigations often reveal the most common cause of a client's motorcycle accident includes one or more of the following mistakes made by the driver of a car or truck:

  • Failure to check rearview and side mirrors,
  • Turn in front of the motorcycle at an intersection,
  • Passing the biker without giving enough room,
  • Tailgating the motorcycle,
  • Backing out of a driveway into the path of the motorcycle,

There are also instances in which a motorcycle may crash due to a mechanical problem that can still result in compensation, including:

  • Mechanical and/or tire defects,
  • Improper design (i.e. the Harley wobble),
  • Brake or gear shift defects
