Higher Risks of Accident
Motorcycles are less visible than other vehicles on the road. The majority of motorcycle accidents involving other vehicles happen when the driver of the other vehicle violates the motorcyclist’s right-of-way. Motorcycles are also much more vulnerable to road and construction hazards.
Higher Risks of Injury
Because a motorcycle does not enclose its rider, a motorcyclist is much more vulnerable to serious injury from a motorcycle accident. Injuries from motorcycle accidents can include traumatic brain injuries, fractures or broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and back injuries.
