Hillsboro Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Whether you are one of the thousands of Oregonians who ride their motorcycle year round, or you simply enjoy a nice weekend ride with friends – safety is your number one concern.
Being on the road riding a motorcycle can be an amazing experience. In fact, many people ride their motorcycle for the simple fact that you get a much better view of the beautiful mountains and landscape of Hillsboro.
However, riding a motorcycle also means sharing the road with automobiles – and, there is risk in that. Not everyone who is driving a car is being mindful of motorcycles on the road. In fact, 75% of all accidents involving a motorcycle versus automobile can be traced back to the driver of the car being at-fault.
And, anytime that a motorcycle and an automobile cross paths – the results can be disastrous. The motorcyclist has a much greater chance of being severely and permanently injured due to their close proximity to the road and lack of enclosure.
Some of the circumstances that lead to Hillsboro motorcycle accidents include:
- Automobile drivers turning into a motorcyclist’s lane, violating his or her right-of-way
- Automobile drivers failing to yield to motorcyclists at highway exit and entrance ramps
- Poor road conditions; potholes, uneven pavement
- Poor weather conditions, poor visibility at night
- Defective helmets, motorcycle equipment, or components
