Motorcycle accidents can be complicated matters, which is why they require thorough investigation. Many times motorcycle accidents occur due to another driver’s negligence, however there are certainly other factors that can contribute as well. Sometimes vehicle defects and poor road design can play a role in a collision. It is even possible for crashes to be caused by improperly set up road construction or a lack of warning signs for hazardous highway conditions.
