Motorcycle Accidents in Missouri
Motorcycle crashes take the lives of thousands of people in the United States each year. Regrettably, there are several instances where innocent people are left with severe injuries due to the negligent actions of others right here in the state of Missouri. There are many factors that contribute to these crashes taking place day after day in our state.
One of the most notable causes of motorcycle accidents is when another driver fails to check their blind spot before changing lanes. This can easily result in a serious collision, as the motorcyclist may not have time to react and avoid being hit.
Another common cause of motorcycle accidents is speeding. This is especially true on highways and other roadways where there is more traffic. When drivers are speeding, they are less likely to see a motorcyclist and more likely to cause an accident if they do hit one.
Finally, drifting into other lanes is also a major cause of motorcycle accidents. This can happen when a driver isn’t paying attention or when they are tired. If a driver drifts into another lane, they may not see a motorcyclist in that lane and could easily cause an accident.
