How motorcycle accidents can happen
The number one cause of motorcycle accidents is a collision with a motor vehicle. In 2011, a total of 1,436 accidents - more than 48 percent - of all motorcycle accidents could be traced back to a crash involving a motor vehicle. When these accidents occur, the other driver may try to blame the accident on the motorcyclist, even if the driver of the car caused the accident.
Motorcycles colliding with a fixed object resulted in 370 accidents in Arizona in 2010, the second highest cause of accidents in the state that year. The third highest cause: overturning motorcycles, which accounted for 357 accidents statewide in 2010.
