Other Motor Vehicles Are Typically At Fault in Florida Motorcycle Accidents
Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers discuss how motor vehicles are typically at fault in Florida Motorcycle Accidents.
Believe it or not, other motor vehicles are one of the top causes of motorcycle accidents in the state of Florida. Although occupants in a motor vehicle that collides with a motorcycle are also affected in the traffic accident, the motorcycle operator and their passenger can experience life-threatening injuries.
The following are a few different ways vehicles can cause motorcycle crashes:
Incorrect Estimation Of the Motorcycle’s Speed and Distance – It is difficult to estimate the distance and speed of motorcycles. If a driver misjudges the speed or distance of a motorcycle, they can turn into the motorcycle’s path, causing an unavoidable accident.
Opening Vehicle Doors Without First Looking for Oncoming Vehicles – Not all car vs. motorcycle crashes are not always the result of careless driving or speeding. When a motorcyclist collides against an open car door, the biker can become severely injured. The best way to prevent these car door accidents, is motorcyclists should try to make themselves visible and slow down. Automobile drivers should look out for anyone approaching, including bicycles, pedestrians, and motorcycles.
Sudden Lane Changes – This is one of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Florida. The incorrect estimation of speed and distance can cause a motorcycle accident since it’s harder to see a motorcycle in the driver’s blind spot. Drivers should always check their blind spots before making lane changes.
..."Cars are statistically the top cause of motorcycle accidents in Florida."
According to a news report on Sun-Sentinel.com, cars are statistically the top cause of motorcycle accidents in Florida. However, most vehicle collisions with motorcycle accidents are avoidable. When drivers practice safe driving practices, most motorcycle accidents can be avoided.
