Causes of Michigan Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Although the public often thinks that bikers are responsible for motorcycle accidents, statistics show that most motorcycle accident injuries in Michigan are caused by the negligence of another driver. An often-overlooked fact is that the other drivers either fail to respect or pay attention to motorcycles. The results in a wide variety of car-motorcycle and truck-motorcycle accidents, including:
- Cars rear-ending motorcycles
- Cars or trucks failing to signal before changing lanes
- Other vehicles making a right turn from the center lane and failing to see a motorcycle to their right
- Trucks or cars forcing motorcycles into a guard rail
- Drivers running a red light or stop sign without seeing the motorcycle
