In Portland, bikers can hop on their motorcycle and enjoy a thrilling ride for the majority of the year. Sadly, some of these rides do not always end well. It is more difficult for drivers to see and be aware of approaching motorcyclists than automobiles. Driving a motorcycle puts you at greater risk because they do not provide physical protection like a vehicle. Motorcycles can be viewed as a more dangerous and reckless form of transportation. If you have been injured in a crash, it is important to work with a Portland motorcycle accident attorney that will fight for your rights and ensure they are upheld.
What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in Portland?
No two motorcycle accidents are ever exactly alike. After a crash, you need an experienced lawyer who will conduct a full investigation to determine how the accident happened. This is the only way to determine who to hold liable for paying the financial compensation you deserve. A few of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents that place bikers in jeopardy are as follows:
- Sudden or improper lane changes
- Improper turns
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol, illicit drugs, or medication
- Violation of traffic laws
- Defective motorcycle parts and add-on features
- Improperly designed or maintained roads
