Virginia Motorcycle Accidents

Although the public often thinks that bikers are responsible for motorcycle accidents, statistics show that 70% of motorcycle accident injuries in Virginia are caused by the negligence of another driver. An often-overlooked fact is that the other drivers either fail to respect or pay attention to motorcycles. This results in a wide variety of car-motorcycle and truck-motorcycle accidents, including:

  • Cars rear-ending motorcycles
  • Cars or trucks failing to signal before changing lanes
  • Other vehicles making a right turn from the center lane and failing to see a motorcycle to their right
  • Trucks or cars forcing motorcycles into a guard rail
  • Drivers running a red light or stop sign and colliding with a motorcycle
