Ways That Inexperienced Motorcyclists Cause Serious Wrecks

While many motorcycle accidents are caused by a negligent motorist, in some cases a motorcycle rider is the cause of a wreck that results in victims suffering serious injuries or death. Often the motorcyclist causes these wrecks due to lack of experience riding a motorcycle. In this situation, the injured victim may be entitled to compensation from the negligent motorcycle rider.

How Does Motorcycle Rider Inexperience Lead to Motorcycle Accidents?

Driving a motorcycle is not the same as driving an automobile and involves a certain amount of skill to navigate curves, maintain balance, stop correctly, and shift gears. When motorcyclists get their license and just hop on their bikes without proper experience and training, they can make errors that result in accidents. Common ways that rider inexperience causes crashes include the following:

  • Failing to drive at a safe speed for weather conditions
  • Failing to maintain a safe distance from the driver in front of the motorcycle
  • Engaging in distracted driving practices, such as talking on a cellphone or texting
  • Speeding
  • Failing to use turn signals when turning
  • Making braking errors, such as braking too quickly or relying on the rear brakes too much
  • Failing to obey traffic laws
  • Driving when intoxicated due to alcohol or drug consumption
  • Improperly weaving between vehicles or engaging in illegal lane splitting

If you were injured in an accident caused by a negligent motorcycle rider, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries from his insurance company. Types of compensation you could be entitled to include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering that you endured due to your accident and your injuries.

Holding the negligent motorcyclist responsible for compensating you may not be easy. You need the assistance of an experienced motorcycle attorney to prove that his negligence was the cause of your wreck and your injuries.
