Intersection collision injures motorcyclist in Iowa crash

Although driving safely might seem like an innate action while behind the wheel of a vehicle, drivers in Iowa and elsewhere should always be alert and aware of their surroundings. This means taking constant notice of speed limit signs, traffic signals and signs, other vehicles on the roadway and any type of hazard that might be up ahead. Even when a driver is being cautious and believes he or she is driving safely, a simple moment of inattention could be the cause of an accident.

What are the common causes of motorcycle accidents?

While motorcycles are generally considered less safe than other motor vehicles, many Iowa residents are aware of ways that they can increase their safety while driving or riding on a motorcycle. Safety gear such as protective clothing and a helmet could help reduce or prevent injuries from occurring if an accident were to occur. While taking protective measures is helpful, motorcyclists should also understand common causes so that they can avoid being involved in a collision.

While the warm months are frequently the time of year when Iowa residents are more concerned about motorcycle accidents, motorcycle safety should be stressed year-round. Because motorists will often assert that they did not see the motorcyclist before a collision occurred, it is crucial that traffic safety precautions regarding all types of vehicles are always stressed. Our law firm understands that motorcycle accidents are often tragic, and victims and their loved ones should understand the rights afforded to them when a negligent driver collides with a motorcycle.
