There are over 7 million motorcycles on the road according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Warm sunny weather makes Virginia and North Carolina ideal places to ride motorcycles. However, motorcycle riders are more likely to be killed or injured than someone riding in an automobile when driving on busy interstates, streets and highways.
Frequently, automobile drivers find it difficult to see motorcycles. Additionally, automobile drivers often tailgate and follow motorcycles too close on the road, which makes a collision and serious injury more likely to occur.
Poorly maintained roads with potholes and uneven pavement as well as weather conditions, including wet roads, also pose more of a danger to motorcycle riders than to cars. Additionally, there may be manufacturer defects in the motorcycle itself.
Motorcycle accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, including:
These injuries can be severe and life-altering, requiring long-term medical treatment and rehabilitation.
Because of the added dangers and risks of injury, motorcycle riders need their legal rights and remedies protected in the event of a collision or accident.
