Queens has the most diversified economy of the five boroughs of New York City (NYC) – it’s home to two of New York City’s airports, major sports and athletic facilities, and some well-known historical sites.

How Might a Motorcycle Accident Happen in Queens?

There are many factors that contribute to a motorcycle accident in Queens. Some of the most common reasons motorcyclists are injured in an accident:

  • Left Turns. Left turn accidents happen when one motorist makes a left turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle. Often the driver miscalculates the speed of the oncoming motorcycle and by the time they realize it, the crash has occurred.
  • Distracted Drivers. Motorcyclists can be hard to see on the road and when traffic is moving. That’s why it’s crucial to always keep your eyes on the road to avoid an accident.
  • Unsafe Lane Changes. Motorcycles are narrow and harder to detect on the roads. Motorcycles can move in and out of traffic quickly, and because of this, a side swipe can occur when a vehicle switches lanes and collides with a motorcycle.
  • Speeding. Speeding is a leading cause in most Queens motorcycle accidents involving vehicles. Following the speed limits posted on roads and expressways is the best way to avoid causing a motorcycle accident.
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI). Motorcycle accidents caused by DUI can be fatal and are preventable.
  • Tailgating. Driving too close to a motorcyclist can result in an accident if the motorcycle must make a sudden stop.
