Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Many motorcycle accidents are caused by the same reasons as other types of vehicular crashes, such as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol and speeding. But there are some causes of accidents that are specific to motorcycles. Some of those causes include the following:

  • Lane splitting. This is the practice of driving in between lanes, mostly during traffic. Lane splitting is illegal in Georgia and could cause an accident.
  • Car doors. If you are driving by a parked car, maybe while lane splitting, the driver in the car may not see you coming and may open the door, and you crash into it. It is important to be cognizant of other cars as you approach them from the side.
  • Drivers who are not experienced. Many young people like to ride motorcycles because they are exciting; they enjoy feeling the wind blow by at a fast speed. However, many motorcycle drivers are not experienced and may not even have a special license to ride one. This inexperience may lead to accidents which can cause severe injuries.

What You Should Do If You Are Involved in a Motorcycle Accident

It is important to remember that if you are involved in a motorcycle accident, the most important thing is your safety. If you are in the middle of the road, move your motorcycle to safety. Then, you are ready to assess the situation. Here are steps that you should perform next, which will be important to your case.

  • Call the police. Having a police report to show your lawyer is a first step in proving fault.
  • Get medical attention. Even if you think that your injuries are not that bad, you should always get medical attention. Injuries sometimes take a few weeks or months to become apparent and having a medical record is the key to proving damages and getting compensated for your injuries.
  • Speak to eyewitnesses. Make sure you get contact information from any eyewitnesses to the accident. Your Warner Robins motorcycle accident lawyer may want to get a sworn statement from these witnesses about the accident.
  • Take photos and videos. Since mostly everyone has a cell phone these days, it is important to take pictures and videos of the accident scene. Take as many as possible, from every angle. That one picture or video could be the key to finding fault in the accident, and thus, compensation.
  • Call an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. You shouldn’t have to get compensated from the at-fault party on your own. Call a lawyer to help you move the process along as smoothly as possible.

Besides the steps of what you should do if you were involved in a motorcycle accident, there are a few examples of what you should not do as well. Those include:

  • Don’t speak with the other driver about the accident, and most importantly, do not admit fault.
  • Don’t post about your accident on social media. This could be used by the insurance companies to find fault and liability.
  • Don’t post anything on social media until your claim is closed. If you are claiming injuries and then you post a picture of you dancing in a bar, it can be used against you by the insurance companies.
