As every rider knows, enjoying your motorcycle comes with risk. Motorcycle accidents can happen in a split second and the damages can be life altering.
Some motorcycle accidents can be attributed to speed, road conditions, or driver error. However, a vast number happen because of other motorist’s lack of attention or negligence. A motorcycle is smaller in size and more difficult to see even if the other driver checks their mirrors. Often motorists fail to detect a motorcycle, tailgate, or fail to yield right of way.
According to statistics, 75% of motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle. Because motorcycles do not have safety devices, seat belts, or crash protection – ultimately there are more injuries.
