Motorcycles encounter unique hazards on the road

Although summer is unofficially over, the weather is still warm and it is not uncommon to see motorcycles on the roads. While drivers in traditional motor vehicles have certain protections that we often take for granted, including seat belts, air bags and even the car itself acting as a shell to protect passengers in the event of an accident, motorcyclists have certain inherent dangers.

While the driver of a traditional motor vehicle may pay little to no mind when driving over potholes, they could wreak havoc for someone on a bike. Motorcyclists are also especially vulnerable to gravel, water and leaves on the road.

While drivers in passenger cars who are strapped into their seat belts are relatively safe when a minor accident occurs, a motorcyclist who is involved in any accident may be thrown off the bike. They are then also vulnerable to other cars on the road, as well as objects such as guardrails and telephone poles if they slide or are thrown off the road.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and have suffered serious injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. This may include compensation for your pain and suffering, as well as money for your medical bills, rehabilitation and lost wages.

This is true not only for accidents that involve other vehicles, but instances where a poorly maintained road caused the accident or instances where a motorcycle defect played a role in the accident. In order to see if you qualify, it may be helpful to reach out to a local law firm familiar with personal injury cases to look at your situation and determine whether you have a case and how you should proceed.
