Every year thousands of motorcyclists are seriously injured or killed in traffic collisions. Because motorcycles have no protective barrier and are open vehicles, very serious injuries are sustained from even minor crashes. In fact, 98% of motorcycle collisions result in injury to the motorcyclist. What’s more is that 45% of those injuries can be classified as moderate to severe.
Motorcycle accidents are most frequently caused at the hands of negligent motorists who simply do not see and are not aware of the motorcycle’s presence in dense traffic. Motorcycles are struck by other vehicles predominantly when the other vehicle:
- Makes a left turn in front of the oncoming motorcyclist
- Switches into a lane already occupied by a motorcyclist
