Motorcycle crashes involving cars are common because motorcycles have a smaller profile and are more difficult to see. Drivers are required to see what is to be seen and are often inattentive, they don't look.
Roadway conditions and hazards such as rain, potholes and objects on the road tend to destabilize motorcycles very quickly. As a result of these factors, during a motorcycle accident the rider and any passenger face a higher risk of injury than the occupant of an enclosed vehicle.
Damage and Injuries From a Motorcycle Crash
The injuries from a motorcycle crash can have serious, lifelong consequences for riders and their families. The injured motorcyclist may become unable to work, or forced to work in a lower-paying occupation. Beyond medical expenses, an injured motorcyclist's family may be burdened by additional costs resulting from lost work-time from caring for or accompanying their loved one to long-term appointments for therapy, or other expenses.
In order to recover after a crash, the injured motorcyclist and affected family members should receive compensation for current and future medical care, lost income, property damage, and pain and suffering.
