Motorcycle Crashes Are Different Than Other Accidents

Motorcycle accidents involve unique issues that are different from those in your typical auto accident collision. Some common scenarios may include another vehicle:

  • Turning left in front of you
  • Changing lanes into you
  • Hitting you from behind
  • Opening its door

Regardless of how the accident happened, a rider on a motorcycle can sustain devastating life-altering injuries or death when involved in an accident even though they are wearing all their full protective gear.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to experience a deadly accident on the road than those in passenger cars.
