Although motorcycle accidents are often caused by other drivers on the road, they can also be caused by road hazards. As a result, motorcyclists are much more susceptible to motorcycle accidents caused by road hazards.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle crash, we encourage you to contact a member of our legal team to discuss your case. We also invite you to review some of the most common questions our firm receives about motorcycle accidents.
Due to there being so many hazards on the road and not enough funding to keep our roads safe, it is important for motorcyclists to remain vigilant at all times to avoid a motorcycle accident. Motorcycle accidents caused by road hazards can cause extremely serious injuries or fatalities. It is important to note that something as little as a wet road or uneven pavement can cause a serious motorcycle accident.
Poor road maintenance:Rough roadways can be extremely dangerous for motorcyclists and can cause a motorcyclist to easily lose control. Rough roads include potholes, cracks, uneven pavement, gravel, and more.
Slick surfaces:Anything as simple as leaves, oil spills, train tracks, and many other issues can cause slick roads for motorcyclists.
Road debris:Branches, rocks, fallen objects, tire threads, litter, and other debris are very hazardous and can cause a serious motorcycle accident.
Strong winds:A strong gust of wind can easily throw a motorcyclist off-balance.
Wet roads:Rain after a long dry spell can cause a motorcycle accident and are the most slippery during this time. In addition, standing water can easily cause a motorcycle to hydroplane.
Ice/snow:Ice and snow-filled roads are much more dangerous for a motorcyclist than someone in a car.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident due to poor road conditions, you may be eligible for legal compensation. A government entity should be held legally liable for road maintenance.
