Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Because motorcycles are so much smaller than vehicles like trucks and cars, they can be difficult to see unless the driver of the passenger vehicle is especially careful. When a careless or reckless passenger car driver fails to act reasonably, they pose a danger to motorcyclists. Some of the most common ways we see negligence lead to a motorcycle accident include:
- Changing lanes without looking or using turn signals
- Following too closely
- Pulling out in front of motorcycles
- Failing to yield right of way when turning
- Failure to obey traffic signals or signs
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Distracted driving
- Drunk or drugged driving
We will identify the liable party or parties in your motorcycle accident and get to the bottom of how their actions caused your injuries. We will also use all of the information available to calculate the value of your damages.

Proving Negligence in a Motorcycle Accident
Our attorneys will use the information available to prove the passenger car driver caused your motorcycle accident. If we can prove a driver breached a duty of care to you, such as violating a law, we will try to prove this is what caused your accident. Finally, we will show that the accident caused you to suffer actual damages, such as medical bills and lost wages.
Negotiating with the Insurance Company
Once we have a good understanding of what happened and how the liable party caused your accident, we will approach their insurance company with a demand letter. This letter outlines our case against their policyholder, details your damages, and lists the total value we put on your case.
Often, we can negotiate a fair settlement agreement at this point in the process. This allows us to avoid going to court and you may get paid sooner. However, if the insurance company refuses a fair payout or denies your claim, we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit against the liable driver.

For this reason, it is important to act quickly after an accident to enlist our help and get started. Also, if we act quickly, we may be able to preserve evidence in your motorcycle accident.
