Factors To Consider In A Motorcycle Accident
It may sound like a tired phrase but it’s true: motorcyclists are at more risk on the road than other drivers. This is the case for two major reasons:
Motorcyclists are harder to see than larger vehicles.
Motorcycles may be difficult to see because of their size, but this does not mean the motorcyclist is always at fault in a crash. Other drivers are still responsible for staying aware of their surroundings and avoiding any distractions such as cellphone use.
Motorcyclists are less protected than other drivers.
Even with a helmet, a collision with a car will almost always do more damage to the motorcyclist than to a driver protected by the car’s exterior and multiple interior safety measures. This means it is especially important for bikers to get a full diagnosis of their injuries to determine the compensation they will need.
