While most motorcyclists would attest to the thrill of the ride, the fact remains that they are vulnerable road users. Although all drivers have the responsibility to share the road, the small size of motorcycles means that they are often overlooked by other vehicles.
Most motorcycling accidents occur from negligence by other drivers. Drunk driving, road rage, reduced visibility, and speeding are also common factors which can lead to a motorcycle accident.
And because they lack the safety features of cars (such as seatbelts or airbags), a motorcycle accident can often result in serious and debilitating injuries for the rider.
It can be difficult to recover from a serious motorcycle accident both physically and financially. Because most motorcycle accidents result in serious and often life-changing injury, the compensation required to recover medical, pain and suffering, rehabilitation, and loss of income is critical to recovery. It’s important to speak with a personal injury lawyer to understand your rights and entitlement early in the process.
