Motorcycle Accidents in the Bay Area

Get Help from a Bay Area Car Accident Lawyer

Motorcycles may be a small, efficient, and space-saving way to get around crowded areas, including the tight streets of San Francisco. However, motorcycles also present a far bigger danger to their drivers than cars do. Unlike automobiles, motorcycles do not surround riders with thousands of pounds of impact-absorbing metal designed to prevent injuries in the event of a collision.

Motorcycle accidents result in far more serious injuries than collisions between regular cars. In many cases motorists are not aware of the presence of a motorcyclist due to their small size and the ease with which they can slip into a driver’s blind spot. It is important for all riders to be aware of the road around them to help avoid accidents, and to contact a Bay Area car accident attorney in the event they are in an accident.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by a wide variety of road hazards, many of which may not be an issue for a regular car. It is important for both motorcyclists and drivers who share the road to constantly be on the lookout for these dangers for each other as well as themselves to help avoid an accident.

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by:

  • Lack of visibility
  • Sudden lane changes/”cutting-off”
  • Tailgating
  • Poor road conditions
  • Bad weather
  • Failure to properly signal
