Many motorcycle accidents are caused not by negligent drivers, but by motorcycle defects. Just like automotive defects , motorcycle defects can range in nature and severity, and include some of the following:
- Brake failure
- Helmet defects
- Tire failure
- Chain failure
- Pedal defects
Motorcycle defects can cause serious injuries to the drivers of motorcycles, their passengers, and other drivers. In addition to the inherent dangers associated with riding a motorcycle, negligent drivers and hazardous road conditions can also contribute to motorcycle accidents too.
