Motorcyclists have a greater risk of serious injury in a crash than other drivers on the road. More often than not, motorists are hardly aware of motorcycle riders and with more and more drivers distracted by texting, talking and eating, instances in which drivers of four-wheel vehicles strike motorcycle riders without even knowing there was a vehicle close to them have become increasingly common.
Even the smallest laying down of your bike can lead to serious injuries that could result in permanent pain, scarring, and limited mobility. There is a long road to recovery if you have been seriously hurt as the result of a motorcycle accident. You may also be left wondering whether you will ever be able to ride again.
Then there is the financial strain when your medical insurance doesn’t cover 100% of your bills and rehabilitation. As a result, these injuries are likely to take an emotional and financial toll.
When other drivers put you at risk and cause an accident due to reckless or risky driving behaviors, you should be compensated for their negligence.
