Liability In Motorcycle Accidents
According to the Insurance Information Institute, “Motorcycles are by their nature far less crashworthy than closed vehicles. They are also less visible to other drivers and pedestrians and less stable than four-wheel vehicles. Operating a motorcycle requires a different combination of physical and mental skills than those used in driving four-wheel vehicles. Motorcyclists and their passengers are more vulnerable to the hazards of weather and road conditions than drivers in closed vehicles.” Many drivers hit motorcyclists because they are going too fast or simply not paying attention. The victim of any motorcycle accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
