How Do Most Motorcycle Accidents Happen in Florida?
1. Failure to Yield Causes the Most AccidentsThe most commonly reported reason for motorcycle accidents is when a car fails to yield the right-of-way and turns left across the path of an oncoming motorcycle. There are lots of reasons this can happen, including a driver who is distracted, whose vision is impaired by the sun, or because motorcycles are sometimes difficult to see in traffic.
2. Failure to Follow Traffic Signs and SignalsPosted traffic signs and signals are intended to keep drivers safe and keep traffic flowing smoothly. Speeding and running stop signs or red lights puts everyone on the road in danger, and motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to injury or death.
3. Distracted or Impaired DrivingTexting, talking on the phone, eating, looking at paperwork, and daydreaming are some of the causes of distracted driving. Taking drugs or drinking alcohol can impair a driver’s ability to drive safely. Anything that takes a driver’s attention away from the road is dangerous and should be avoided. When a driver is distracted or impaired, they may follow too closely, change lanes, improperly, or run a stop sign or light. All motorists are in danger because of distracted and impaired drivers; motorcyclists are just are more likely to be seriously injured than automobile occupants.
4. Equipment Malfunctions Can Also Cause AccidentsThere are times when the motorcycle itself is to blame for an accident. An accident may happen due to mechanical malfunction rather than cyclist error. In this situation, the motorcyclist may be able to recover damages from the manufacturer of the motorcycle or the malfunctioning component.
