Common Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents aren't always the fault of the biker. In fact, more often than not, it's the other driver who fails to see you. These drivers often aren't paying attention and don't notice motorcycles on the road. They also may have:

  • Changed lanes without looking
  • Failed to signal a turn
  • Followed you too closely
  • Made a sudden left turn in front of you (the most common cause of accidents)

These are just a few examples of careless driving. Any of these behaviors can lead to tragic consequences for the unfortunate motorcyclist who happens to cross paths with the wrong driver.

Building A Strong Case For Your Financial Recovery

It's a troubling reality that motorcyclists often shoulder the blame for crashes. The insurance company, the other driver and even the police may try to pin the accident on you. It may take careful investigation and solid evidence to prove otherwise. That's when an experienced legal team can be a tremendous benefit.

At Milavetz, Gallop & Milavetz, P.A., a Twin Cities-based law firm, we have the investigative resources to identify the true cause of your accident. Our lawyers will take swift action to gather the necessary evidence for pursuing full compensation on your behalf. For example:

  • We work with accident reconstructionists to recover MnDOT traffic camera footage.
  • We enlist other types of experts to provide credible analysis of what happened.
  • We examine damage to the vehicles involved.
  • We interview eyewitnesses.

Many of our clients have suffered serious injuries as a result of these accidents — head and neck injuries, broken or crushed legs, spinal cord injuries and road rash, to name a few. Others have lost a spouse, parent or child in an accident. It's very important to them, and to their families, that they're not left with financial burdens. We work tirelessly to recover compensation for medical care, rehabilitation expenses, funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering, current and future lost wages and other losses associated with the accident.
