Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Vancouver

Motorcycle accidents in Vancouver, Washington, are caused by various factors. However, the most common cause of motorcycle accidents is other motorists. Due to their smaller profile, many car drivers and other motor vehicle drivers simply do not see motorcyclists on the road. As such, they may turn left in front of a motorcyclist or rear-end them at a stop light.

When other motorists are engaged in poor-driving behaviors, the likelihood of missing a motorcycle on the road increases. As a result, many motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers who are speeding, drunk driving, and driving distracted.

Weather conditions can also play a role in motorcycle accidents. Vancouver, Washington, sees an average of 150 days of rain per year. Rainy conditions make it harder for other motorists to see motorcyclists on the road. It also makes braking and turning on the road more difficult. This can lead to deadly motorcycle crashes.

Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim in Vancouver

Motorcyclists often face an uphill battle when trying to collect the compensation they need — and deserve. Insurance companies and adjusters often havemotor accident strong, unfounded biases against motorcyclists. Many view them as reckless risk-takers.
