Illegal Passing - Our West Palm Beach motorcycle accident attorneys demand justice

Types of accidents
Motorcycle accidents involving drivers passing illegally often result in serious injuries. That's partly because drivers who pass illegally are often driving significantly above the speed limit. Some of the most common motorcycle collisions involving illegal passing include:
- Head-on collisions - When drivers pass illegally, especially on two-lane roads, they sometimes crash into oncoming vehicles, including motorcycles.
- T-bone accidents - Another common illegal passing accident involves a driver passing illegally or running a red light or stop sign and crashing into the side of a motorcyclist.
- Sideswipe accidents - These types of accidents often happen on highways when a driver illegally changes lanes without looking and crashes into the side of a motorcyclists in the adjacent lane.
