Motorcycle riding can create special vulnerabilities for motorcyclists on the roadways that can make them susceptible to harm at the hands of careless or negligent drivers. Motorcycle accident victims can suffer catastrophic injuries and death if they are struck by an inattentive or careless driver on the roadways. Because of the serious nature of motorcycle accidents, it is important for motorcycle riders to understand their rights on the road and if they have been injured or otherwise harmed.
When a negligent or careless driver has failed to yield the righto of way or observe a motorcyclist, the motorcycle rider may suffer significant and serious physical, financial and emotional damages. It is worth noting that in two-thirds of motorcycle accidents, the driver of the other vehicle failed to yield the right of way to the motorcycle rider, causing the accident and the harm the motorcyclist suffered.
