Statistics have shown that many motorcycle accidents are caused by another motor vehicle merging into the lane of a motorcycle and violating the motorcyclist’s right of way. Other motorbike accidents have resulted from obstruction of view from the sun’s glare or as a result of just not seeing a motorcycle in traffic. Motorcycle accidents often happen at intersections when the motorcyclist's right-of-way is violated and traffic controls are ignored.
Negligent speeding, motorcyclists running wide on curves due to excessive speed or under-cornering can cause a domino effect resulting in a deadly wreck. Fuel leakage and spills from a motorcycle crashes can cause fire hazards. Vehicle failure where control is lost due to a punctured tire is another known cause of motorcycle accidents.

Often, in motorcycle wreck cases, it is necessary to consult experienced counsel immediately after a wreck to make sure that all relevant evidence is preserved. Additionally, on these types of cases, it is often necessary to employ an accident re-constructionist expert so that the causes of the wreck can be determined and documented at the earliest possible time to avoid a contest later or to be able to properly present the case later in court. If a re-constructionist is to be employed, it needs to be done as early as possible while physical evidence still exists. Often, it is necessary to employ other types of experts.
