Motorcycle Accidents 

A recent study found that drivers of cars and trucks, not motorcyclists, are the cause of most motorcycle accidents involving more than just the bike. Anyone involved in a motorcycle accident should have their investigative team evaluate all aspects surrounding the collision. This includes reviewing:   

  • Driver accident history  
  • Police accident report  
  • Any testing of driver for drugs and alcohol  
  • Any history of driver with drugs and alcohol  
  • Phone and texting records of the driver  
  • All eyewitness accounts of the accident  
  • Accident history on I-5 Freeway 
  • Evaluation is highway signage is clear and up to code  
  • Evaluation is pavement markings are clear and up to code  
  • Inspection of roadway conditions  
  • Any video evidence of the crash  
  • Vehicle blind spots 

Car drivers always have a duty to always exercise safety precautions to avoid hitting motorcyclists.
