Motorcycle Risks and Protections
Driving a motorcycle regularly can pose an increased risk of harm than driving a car. This is often not even due to driving of the motorcycle rider or their efforts to be safe. Often in a motorcycle crash, the motorcycle rider did absolutely nothing wrong that contributed to the accident.
The real risk for motorcycle riders often is other drivers of cars on the roadway. With the progression of technology and ease of access to personal cellular devices, drivers on the roadway today may be more distracted than ever before as they navigate to their destination in their cars.
The risks that are posed to a motorcycle driver by an inattentive driver are obvious. While on a motorcycle a motorcycle rider does not have the same protection from impact that the driver of a car would. If an impact with a motorcycle and a car occurs, that impact is often directly on the body of the motorcycle rider. This is as opposed to the structured frame of the vehicle that may have been designed to better absorb that impact. Injuries from motorcycle accidents are often more severe than those suffered in a car accident.
The law seeks to protect motorcycle riders and provide them with a means to compensation after they have been injured in an accident. If the negligence of a driver causes an accident and the motorcycle rider is injured, they may seek damages for their loss.
Often this pursuit begins with an examination of the evidence that is available, such as the police report. Once some basic information and evidence is obtained, a claim will often be opened up with the at fault driver's insurance company.
