ROTECT YOURSELF AND AVOID PROBLEMS
Maintaining control is harder on two wheels than on four, and when crashes occur, motorcyclists are at greater risk of serious injury or death because they don't have an enclosed vehicle to protect them. There were 4,976 motorcyclists killed in crashes in 2016.
Unfortunately, whether it is a custom motorcycle, a stock motorcycle, or even a “trike,” motorcycles do not provide as much safety to riders as a car or a truck. Typical motorcycle accidents include being rear-ended by a vehicle where the driver is distracted, left turn collisions, drunk drivers, broadsided collisions, out of control drivers, and drivers who run stop signs and red lights only to collide with your motorcycle. Of course, there are also situations in which defective motorcycles have led to motorcycle accidents.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Driver Opens Car Door
Bad Road Conditions
Some motorcycle accidents can be attributed to a defect in the design or the manufacture of the motorcycle. If the motorcycle had a design defect, the company planned,or designed the vehicle in such a way that an injury could foreseeably result. A manufacturing defect, on the other hand, means that there was some deviation from the intended design while the motorcycle was being assembled, and this deviation rendered the motorcycle dangerous in some way.
