Tucson Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Driving a motorcycle can be an exhilarating experience, but it is also one that comes with specific dangers, largely due to the driving of other vehicles on the road. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by someone or something else, you could be entitled to compensation for all the damages associated with your accident. Motorcycle accidents are more common than you might think. In fact, in 2020 alone the Arizona Department of Transportation recorded some 2,317 motorcycle crashes, which resulted in 160 fatalities and 1,921 injuries.
Being injured in a motorcycle accident can lead to substantial medical bills, lost wages and earnings, and other expenses. Losing a loved one to a motorcycle crash can create even more financial hardship in the form of funeral expenses and the loss of the emotional and financial contribution of the person lost in the accident.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents You Can Recover Damages For
With little to protect them in the event of a collision, motorcyclists are at the mercy of other motorists while on the road. While drivers owe a legal duty to operate their vehicles in a way that keeps others safe, many routinely fail to do so. Carelessness, inattention, and dangerous, illegal behaviors lead to serious collisions every day in Tucson.
If another motorist’s actions lead to an accident, they may be legally responsible for compensating those injured. Common causes of motorcycle accidents that we have helped clients recover compensation for include:
- Distracted driving – this includes talking or texting while driving, using the in-dash display, eating while driving, and anything that takes eyes, mind, or hands-off driving
- Drunk or intoxicated driving
- Aggressive driving – which includes not giving other drivers on the road enough space, tailgating, abrupt lane changes, and other behaviors that put motorcyclists at risk
- Drowsy or fatigued driving
When a driver is breaking the rules of the road and causes a motorcycle accident, the driver will be liable for the damages. Proving liability requires the application of the unique facts and circumstances of your motorcycle accident to the legal concept of “negligence,” something your Tucson motorcycle accident lawyer does on your behalf.
