Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are commonly caused by the negligence of motorists who share the road with motorcyclists. They do not pay enough attention to their surroundings and run the risk of crashing into a motorcycle. Although a motorcyclist or biker might have a vehicle with higher-than-normal maneuverability, avoiding a reckless driver can be difficult if they make sudden, erratic movements.
Drivers put motorcyclists at risk when they:
- Drive while distracted
- Drive while intoxicated
- Run red lights
- Run stop signs
Who Can Be Held Liable for a Motorcycle Accident?

Thanks to our extensive legal experience, we know how to find and utilize proof of liability in many forms and from many sources.
We might be able to bolster your case with the following evidence and more:
- Helmet cam footage

A motorcyclist is likely to suffer extreme injuries in a wreck.

Will My Bike Be Replaced After a Crash?
Part of the compensation you can seek from the driver who hit you is property damage. If you secure property damage compensation, then it should include the cost to repair or replace your motorcycle, possibly up to an insurance cap. Technically, property damage claims are separate from bodily injury claims, though. While our firm focuses on personal injury cases, we can also assist with your property damage claim, so you can have a better chance of repairing or replacing your bike.
