Motorcycle accidents commonly occur at intersections. Drivers who fail to obey traffic lights or stop signs run the risk of causing a high-speed accident. Drivers who fail to properly yield the right-of-way can also cause devastating injuries to motorcyclists. Anyone whose act of negligence or wrongdoing results in a collision with a motorcycle can be held liable for the injuries caused in addition to facing citations or criminal charges.
