Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Serving Miami, Florida and Nationwide


In a sense, referring to wrecks in the Miami area involving motorcycles as "accidents" is to commit something of a linguistic error. "Accident" implies that no one was at fault for the crash, that nothing could be done to prevent it.

The reality is quite different. Our Miami motorcycle accident lawyers know quite well that these crashes have specific, verifiable causes. And often, these causes include negligence or misconduct from the driver of the automobile involved.

This negligence can take many specific forms, and we will discuss them on this page. But the important thing to remember is that you can pursue compensation if you were the victim of such negligence- and we're positioned to help.

Dangerous Negligence

Every driver has obligations while on the road. Some of those are complicated and nuanced, but the big one is not- we all must safely share the road. That means sharing it with other cars, with motorcycles and with bicyclists and pedestrians.

Sadly, many drivers struggle to live up to those obligations when it comes to motorcycles. We've helped too many clients who suffered devastating injuries as a result of another driver's mistakes.

Motorcycle "accidents" are often caused by:

  • A failure to notice a motorcyclist on the road
  • A pro-active decision to try and bully a motorcycle off a road or a particular lane
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Reckless driving
  • A failure to make proper adjustments for road or weather conditions

Our motorcycle accident lawyers understand that discovering the cause of your accident is the first step in proving liability and pursuing the compensation you deserve. We will conduct a thorough, professional investigation into your wreck and find its true cause.
