Although riding a motorcycle is exhilarating, motorcycle riders have no protective barrier and are much more likely to be injured or killed when they are involved in an accident. Add this to the high acceleration rate and speed of most modern motorcycles and there is potential for disaster. Motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to lose their lives in a wreck than occupants of cars.
While studies show that most motorcycle injuries are caused by careless automobile drivers who violate rules of the road, many are quick to assume that the motorcyclist was at fault. Motorcycles are vulnerable to accidents due to their smaller size - this makes them less visible to other vehicles and easy hidden by obstacles. Improper and inattentive left-hand turns are the number one cause of motorcycle accidents. When an accident involves a vehicle and a motorcycle, the motorcyclist will often suffer serious injuries including broken bones, road rash, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and burns.
A motorcycle accident can dramatically change your life. Victims of motorcycle accidents often need extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. These medical expenses can be be a burden on the injured motorcyclists and their friends and family.
