Missouri Personal Injury Attorney: Motorcycle Accident Tips 101

(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 24, 2008 ) A recent high-speed motorcycle accident in Virginia injured four. The crash, between two motorcycles, was the result of speeding. According to authorities, one of the motorcycles involved in the accident was going around 100 mph when the driver lost control. This caused the driver of the second motorcycle to lose control and crash. Both motorcyclists had passengers riding along with them at the time of the crash.

One of the motorcyclists was charged with reckless driving as a result of the accident.

Typically when a Missouri motorcycle accident like this occurs, the reckless motorcyclist will likely be found liable for the injuries and damages caused from the accident. Although the second motorcyclist actually collided into the first, the first motorcyclist’s reckless driving, “set the wheels in motion”, for the subsequent crash. Had the first motorcyclist obeyed the speed limit and controlled his motorcycle, this accident may not have happened.

An experienced motorcycle accident attorney will tell you that these crashes often lead to serious personal injuries and even death. According to statistics, two thirds of all fatal motorcycle crashes are caused in part by speed. Of course, speed is also a leading cause of non-fatal crashes. The alarming part about these statistics is that speed is something that is completely under driver control.

Although other factors may contribute to a motorcycle accident, if the driver is speeding, resulting injuries will likely be more severe because of the increase of force upon contact. Speed also affects the reaction time of motorcyclists.

Speed limits across Missouri do not exceed 70 mph for motorcyclists, yet many motorcycle accidents deal with drivers traveling at speeds 80 m.p.h. and higher. As an avid motorcyclist, I know how exciting and enthralling a motorcycle ride on a nice day can be. However, it is important to keep in mind that nothing is worth everyone’s safety.

It is important to take the following precautions when riding:

(1)Refrain from speeding and reckless driving;
(2)Wear protective gear and a helmet; and
(3)Always anticipate the worst case scenario.

Although most motorcycle accidents are caused by other passenger motor vehicles, the number of single-motorcycle accidents is on the rise. Speed is a significant factor in most single cycle crashes.
