Helping Motorcycle Riders
Motorcycle riders face a number of challenges on the road that make the simple act of riding more dangerous than traveling in a car, including:
- Not being noticed by drivers — Too often when a motorcycle is hit by a car, the driver will say that he or she did not see the motorcycle. Many drivers simply fail to notice motorcycles until it is too late.
- Lack of respect — Even when drivers do see motorcycles, they may not understand the amount of space a motorcycle rider needs to be able to safely operate his or her bike on the road. Worse yet, some people drive aggressively near motorcycle riders.
- Catastrophic injuries — Motorcycle riders often suffer catastrophic injuries when they are in an accident. The lack of safety protections beyond a helmet and leather jacket means that the human body is directly exposed to impacts with the road, trees, telephone poles, guardrails, other vehicles, buildings and other objects.
Because the injuries that can be suffered in a motorcycle accident can be so severe, compensation can be critical to an effective recovery. We can help you secure the compensation necessary to aid you in your recovery.
