Why Do Most Motorcycle Accidents Occur?
When making an error in judgement, either a rider or a driver of another vehicle can cause a motorcycle accident. Other situations may also contribute to a crash, including:
- Defective components on the motorcycle
- Improper motorcycle maintenance
- Bad weather or road conditions
In general, motorcycles have less stability on the road and provide minimal protection for riders. Motorcycle accidents tend to be more damaging than an auto accident, and the risks of riding a motorcycle can be great, so it is imperative that a rider carries motorcycle accident insurance.
