According to a study by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, half of all motorcycle crashes are single vehicle incidents. Many of those incidents are caused by overcorrection. The study notes that 2.5% of crashes in Minnesota and 4.4% nationally are caused by overcorrection. Other examples of motorcycle driver error include taking a turn to quickly, or not recognizing a change of road conditions.

Rumble strips have not been shown to cause stability concerns for motorcycles. Therefore, most of those single vehicle crashes are a result of rider behavior. This is a particular concern with new motorcycle drivers. The NHTSA estimates lack of experience to be the second leading cause of single vehicle motorcycle crashes, behind chemical impairment. Motorcycle safety training can reduce single vehicle accidents. However, crashes are always still a risk.

If the motorcycle driver loses control and causes an accident, the passenger may be injured. Our attorneys are frequently called in these situations to address the motorcycle passenger’s rights. As a starting point, we determine if there is No-Fault coverage available for injured passenger. No-Fault insurance will pay for at least some medical bills and lost wages. We then turn to the liability insurance of the motorcycle owner or driver.
