Motorcycle accidents can be, and often are, serious in nature.  While riding a motorcycle brings thrills, it also brings dangers.  Motorcycles have little protection from outside forces in the event of a collision as the rider’s body is completely exposed except for a helmet and any other protective gear they may be wearing.  While we certainly encourage the use of protective gear, many times there is little to be done to prevent serious injury in a motorcycle crash.

In some cases, other drivers fail to respect the rights of motorcyclists to be on the road.  They may fail to yield or fail to leave proper space between their vehicle and the motorcycle.  This can cause accidents to occur which are not the motorcyclist’s fault.  If a driver is negligent and their negligence leads to injuries, a motorcyclist has a personal injury claim against the driver.
