What Are the Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Massachusetts?
Motorcycle accidents in Massachusetts often cause serious injuries or death to riders. Statistics show that the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving. Distracted driving is usually at the hands of the driver of the passenger vehicle or truck. This includes, but is not limited to, texting and driving.
- Not sharing the road with motorcyclists.
- Failure to yield or obey traffic signs. Many drivers have the notion that it’s easy for motorcyclists to stop. Sometimes, drivers of passenger vehicles simply don’t pay enough attention to the other vehicles on the road.
- Poor road conditions. Potholes, uneven shoulders, and poorly managed road construction can cause motorcycle accidents. When a motorcycle tire hits an item, it can cause the wheel to stop, but the motorcycle and its rider keeps moving. Being thrown from a motorcycle can cause serious and sometimes deadly injuries.
