Risks Involved in Riding a Motorcycle
Because motorcycles are smaller, lighter, and less enclosed than vehicles, any accident involving a motorcycle is going to carry greater risk and more severe consequences than most accidents involving a vehicle.
Take a look at some of the risks inherent to riding motorcycles:
- Less visibility to other vehicles
- Greater road hazards
- No protection between the rider and the road
- Lessened stability due to two wheels
- Greater need for skill and practice
- Greater temptation for risky behavior
Some of these risks can be lessened if riders wear bright clothing, use protective gear, and avoid sharing lanes with cars.
Motorcycle Accident Liability
Motorcycle accidents are guided by similar laws as vehicle accidents; however, determining who is liable for a motorcycle accident can become complicated. While the motorcyclist is responsible for operating the motorcycle safely, other drivers also have a responsibility to watch for motorcyclists and drive carefully.
Four claims must be established to prove an automobile driver liable for motorcycle injury:
- That the automobile driver was required by law to drive carefully and reasonably
- That the driver failed to drive carefully
- That the driver caused injury to the motorcyclist
- That the motorcyclist suffered injury or loss due to the accident
A knowledgeable motorcycle accident lawyer can help investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident to determine who is at fault and how to best proceed.
