“I Didn’t See the Motorcyclist!” ” This Is No Excuse
Case after case, we hear the same excuse from negligent drivers: “I didn’t see the person on the motorcycle!” This is no excuse. Motorcyclists have the same rights as the drivers of other vehicles. Other drivers have a responsibility to watch for motorcyclists, to check their blind spots and to take the safety steps necessary to prevent motorcycle accidents. When they fail to do so, they should be held accountable for their negligence.
Of course, the true cause of the motorcycle accident may be more complicated than a negligent driver simply failing to check his or her blind spots. Other common causes of motorcycle accidents in Minnesota include:
- Failure to drive appropriately for the weather
- Drunk driving and impaired driving
- Phone use and texting while driving
- Speeding and reckless driving
