Leesburg Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycles are inherently dangerous, and in 2015, motorcycle accidents accounted for 70 fatalities and 1,176 injuries in Virginia alone. While motorcycle drivers are often more careful on the roads than typical motor vehicle drivers, a motorcycle’s small frame and lack of protection makes them susceptible to more road hazards than any other vehicle. Furthermore, a motorcycle’s compactness renders them virtually invisible to other drivers in many instances, putting motorcyclists at greater risk in even the most seemingly safe conditions.

Because motorcycles are so small, and because their frames do not provide a lot of protection, individuals that are involved in motorcycle accidents tend to suffer from very serious, and oftentimes life-altering, injuries. If you were recently involved in a motorcycle accident, our Leesburg motorcycle accident attorneys can evaluate the circumstances surrounding your accident and, if we determine that you have a strong enough case, assist you in filing a successful motorcycle accident claim. 

Common Causes for Motorcycle Accidents in Virginia

According to VA Crash Facts 2015, the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Virginia are not traffic violations; rather, driver error tends to be the prevailing factor. The top six causes of motorcycle accidents are:

  • Following too closely;
  • Speeding;
  • Avoiding another vehicle;
  • Failure to yield;
  • Improper lane change; and
  • Improper passing.

Motorcycle drivers have a much higher rate of fatalities—even from seemingly minor accidents—which is why it is extremely important to always be aware of motorcycles out on the road. If you are a motorcyclist, it is just as important, if not more so, to make others aware of your presence, and to drive with extreme care at all times.
