What are the common causes of motorcycle accidents?

At Johnson, Zegen, Scott & Williams, PLLC, we know that motorcycle accidents have many of the same causes as other traffic incidents in the Dallas area. However, we also know that vehicle drivers often fail to give motorcyclists the respect and space they need on the roadway. Of particular concern in these cases are vehicle drivers who are distracted by their phones or are impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Motorcyclists are also more at risk than other drivers to roadway defects and obstacles on the roadway. If the agencies responsible for roadway maintenance do not properly do their job, including state, county, and municipal authorities, they could be held liable for injuries that a motorcyclist sustains in a crash.
