Motorcycle accidents carry an exceptionally high risk of serious injury and can dramatically alter the course of a person's life. Unlike car occupants, motorcyclists lack a surrounding structure to protect them in the event of a collision, leaving them exposed to direct impact with other vehicles and the road.

Driver Negligence Causes Many Washington, D.C. Motorcycle Accidents

Many drivers fail to extend the same courtesy to motorcyclists that they do to other vehicles. This behavior is not only disrespectful but also incredibly dangerous. Motorcycles are smaller and less visible than cars, making it all the more crucial for drivers to exercise caution and respect. Yet, too often, motorcyclists are forced to contend with drivers who tailgate, cut them off, or simply fail to acknowledge their presence on the road, increasing the risk of an accident. A driver becomes liable for a motorcycle accident when their negligent or reckless behavior directly causes the collision. 

Examples of negligent behavior that can make a driver liable for a motorcycle accident include:

  • Distracted driving. When a driver is texting, eating, using a GPS, or engaging in any activity that takes their attention away from the road, the few seconds of distraction can prevent them from reacting in time to prevent a collision, particularly at high speeds. Moreover, distracted drivers may fail to notice motorcyclists due to their smaller size, further compounding the risk.
  • Speeding. Driving above the speed limit reduces reaction times and makes it more challenging to respond to hazards. 
  • Driving under the influence. Alcohol and drugs impair a driver's ability to operate a vehicle safely. Such substances diminish the driver's motor skills, reaction times, and decision-making abilities, all of which are critical for safe driving.
  • Failure to the yield right of way. This is an unfortunately common cause of accidents involving motorcycles. Drivers often fail to yield the right of way to motorcycles at intersections or when changing lanes, leading to dangerous collisions.
  • Tailgating. Following too closely behind a motorcycle can easily lead to a rear-end collision, especially if the motorcyclist needs to brake suddenly. This aggressive behavior can be considered negligent.
  • Failure to signal. When drivers fail to signal their intentions to turn or change lanes, it can lead to disastrous consequences, especially for motorcyclists who are left with little time to react.

Our Washington, D.C. motorcycle accident attorneys are prepared to handle cases involving these and other forms of negligent behavior.
