U Turn Motorcycle Accidents

For many of us, biking is not just a way to get away on the weekend, but a lifestyle. It also provides us with our primary means of transportation. As such, it simply makes sense that the statistical chance we will be involved in a motorcycle accident is raised. We understand this risk. However, just because we choose to ride a motorcycle should not mean that we are more liable for accident costs than automobile or truck operators.

At Lowman Law Firm, we have seen firsthand the devastation motorcycle accidents can cause families and friends of those involved. Serious, life-changing and sadly, sometimes fatal injuries happen. Many times, these injuries that cost one’s livelihood, valuable time at work or their very life could have been avoided. One of these instances is a U-Turn collision where the other driver is at a fault. If you live in Central Florida and have been involved in U Turn motorcycle accident, contact the experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at Chopper Law for a free case evaluation.

U-Turn Motorcycle Accidents: Some Factors To Consider

U-Turn collisions can happen because of a variety of factors. Other drivers failing to see an oncoming biker is one example. Another case might be that the U-Turn is insufficiently marked. And yet another example might be a case where another driver was simply being negligent and careless, causing the motorcycle accident.

Causes Of U-Turn Collisions:

  • Poorly marked U-Turn signs
  • Driver negligence causing a motorcycle accident at a U-Turn
  • Badly designed U-Turns putting you in peril
  • Drunk driver causing you to be involved in a U-Turn motorcycle accident

Other Road Conditions That Might Cause An Accident

Research indicates that the major cause of motorcycle accidents remains the failure of other motorists to recognize motorcyclists in heavy traffic or at night. Statistics show that around 70 percent of motorcycle accident collisions are a result of these or related factors. Other causes remain bad road conditions, speed problems, riding skills, presence of alcohol and undivided or otherwise poorly designed roadways and street debris. Bikers usually suffer in case of bad road conditions like potholes, debris, and uneven places.
