It is not uncommon for people to assume that most motorcycle accidents are caused by motorcyclists. This is why many people are surprised to learn that a majority of Bakersfield motorcycle accidents are caused by the drivers of larger vehicles. Indeed, throughout the United States, over 70 percent of motorcycle accidents occur when drivers of cars and trucks fail to see a rider or to cede right of way.

How Motorcycle Accidents Happen
A majority of Bakersfield motorcycle accidents are caused by negligent or inattentive drivers in larger vehicles. Other causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Speeding or aggressive driving
- Dangerous or defective roadways
- Inclement weather
- Vehicle malfunction or defect
- Drug or alcohol use
Many motorcycle accidents occur when a motorcyclist or car is turning left. Rear-end accidents and intersection accidents are common as well. Regardless of where your motorcycle accident occurred, if it was caused by another driver, you are entitled to seek compensation well beyond the offerings of insurance companies.
