Numerous studies have shown that in a large majority of the cases that involve a motorcycle and a car or truck, it is the actions of the car or truck driver that cause the accident and not the cyclist.
Over the years, there have been various studies that have revealed that motorcycle riders are often the victims of negligence.
More often than not the cause of an accident is related to car drivers not seeing a cyclist who has the right of way. The result is a collision that can have devastating effects.
Motorcycle riders are totally exposed to the road, and when they are in an accident have very little to soften the impact.
Major injuries are common, even in accidents that would normally result in minor injuries if the collision were between two automobiles.
A Florida Traffic Crash Statistics Report in 2010, which studied over 8,000 motorcycle crashes over a 10-year period, showed that cyclists sustained over 7,400 injuries and that the other driver, most often in a car, caused almost 60% of such accidents.
In 1981, a study by motorcycle researcher Harry Hurt revealed that in two-thirds of motorcycle accidents the other driver violated the cyclists’ right of way. Negligent behavior was usually a result of the operator of the car not seeing the cyclist.
At an intersection, often, they were distracted or simply didn’t take the time necessary to carefully check for oncoming traffic or, on a highway, if there was a cyclist in the lane next to them, they lost sight of them in their blind spot or didn’t properly monitor passing traffic.
