What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in West Virginia?

Motorcycle accidents are most commonly caused by driver error on the part of other motorists. Your compensatory damages for such injuries can include pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.

These errors can include:

  • Failure to see motorcycles
  • Distracted driving (texting, eating, drinking, grooming, etc.)
  • Cutting off motorcyclists due to not checking mirrors or blind spots
  • Failure to yield to motorcyclists

Other causes for motorcycle accidents can include defective parts as well as hazardous or defective roadways. All of these causes indicate careless or negligent behavior on the part of others that can lead to severe road rash, cuts, lacerations, organ damage, fractures, spinal injuries, brain injuries, amputations, and more.
