What are some common causes of motorcycle accidents?

There are many different reasons motorcycle accidents can occur. A lot of accidents can be attributed to driver behavior such as distracted or drunk driving. Drivers who fail to pay attention to the road or check blind spots can easily miss motorcyclists. Sometimes a driver may behave aggressively by making dangerous lane changes, rear-ending a motorcycle or running it off the road.

In certain cases motorcycle accidents may occur because of defective parts or manufacturing problems, which can lead a rider to lose control and crash. Hazardous road conditions are also to blame. Motorcycle riders may find it challenging to navigate cracks, potholes or gravel, or even weather conditions like snow and ice.
