Many people wrongfully assume anyone who rides a motorcycle is accepting a greater amount of risk on the roadways, and is therefore entitled to fewer rights. This is a fallacy. Motorcyclists have just as many rights as the drivers or passengers of any other motor vehicle, and this is especially true in the event of a motorcycle accident. Reckless and careless drivers cause many motorcycle accidents, and unfortunately, it’s the person on motorcycle that pays the price.
Even when motorcyclists are wearing helmets and protective gear, the impact of a car, truck, or other vehicle colliding with a rider can cause incredible damage, which could lead to the rider being ejected from the bike. These cases can require a lifetime of care, all because of the negligent actions or inactions of another driver.
Motorcycle accidents are often caused when:
A car passes too close to a motorcycle.
A car rear-ends a motorcycle.
A car brakes too quickly when driving in front of a motorcycle.
A car turns or changes lanes without looking for motorcycles.
