Summer is nearly over. The days are inevitably getting shorter and kids are going back to school. This means more cars are on the road. With an increase of traffic, it also means more potential hazards for motorcyclists.
Motorcyclists have many inherent dangers that many people do not realize. The smaller size of their vehicle means that they are harder to see by other drivers. They are also exposed to hazards that other drivers do not have to worry about. While a car may bump over a pothole or drive through gravel or a puddle with ease, a motorcycle is prone to an accident in those situations. When an accident occurs, the situation is often dire for the rider.
Unlike someone in a car with the luxuries of a seatbelt and airbags, when a motorcycle is involved in an accident the situation can often lead to serious injuries. Not only will a motorcyclist likely be thrown off the bike, but the rider will also be exposed to other vehicles on the road or objects off the road, such as guardrails or trees.
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident and suffer from catastrophic injuries as a result of the accident, it may be in your best interests to reach out to a personal injury lawyer to see whether you could be entitled to compensation. This could help with your medical expenses and rehabilitation costs. Depending on the situation and the cause of the accident, you could also receive compensation to cover pain and suffering, as well as lost wages while you are out of work recovering from your injuries.
