When The Negligence Of Others Causes A Motorcycle Accident
Have you or a loved one been involved in an injury accident while riding a motorcycle? Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries due to many factors. A motorcycle offers less protection to its rider than a truck or automobile.
One way to increase your visibility as a motorcycle driver is to keep your headlight illuminated at all times. While this is no guarantee you won’t be injured, it is one step that can cut down your risk and increase your visibility.
How Accidents Typically Happen
There are various ways that motorcycle accidents can occur. Some of these include rear-end accidents, left-turn collisions, running stop signs, running red lights, speeding, drunk drivers, out-of-control motor vehicles and unsafe lane changes.
Oftentimes automobile drivers just don’t even see motorcycles. Sometimes drivers have a tendency to look right through a motorcycle driving down the road as if it was not even there!
Unfortunately when this happens, it is the motorcycle driver and his passenger who usually bear the brunt of the injuries. Other than a helmet, a motorcycle driver simply does not have that much protection available to him. Unfortunately, when a motorcycle is struck by a car or truck, the injuries sustained are nearly always serious and deadly brain injuries, fractured bones, paralysis or other catastrophic injuries are all too possible.
