Why does failure to yield afflict so many motorcyclists?

There are many reasons to love riding a motorcycle. While all motorcycles will be tucked away for the season come the closing of fall, the reality is that many motorcyclists could still be struggling from motorcycle accident injuries that happened earlier this summer. Many motorcycle accident victims suffer due to the actions or inactions of another motor vehicle driver. Failure to yield is a particular issue that motorcyclists often face in connection with their motorcycle accident injuries.

Failure to yield is any situation in which a motorcyclist has the right-of-way and another vehicle interrupted this and caused a motorcycle accident. For example, a motorcyclist may be traveling straight on a green light when a vehicle in the opposing lane takes a left - this could easily cause a crash with the motorcyclist and vehicle. Or a driver didn't check the roadway closely enough and pulls out in front of a motorcyclist driving the speed limit. Maybe a driver went to change lanes in his vehicle and didn't check his blind spot completely - this could cause a motorcyclist to be run off the road.

As you can see, motorcyclists can be at a disadvantage when it comes to other driver's abilities to yield. Their failure to yield could easily result in motorcycle accident injuries for the motorcyclist. Larger motor vehicles can cause a motorcyclist to lose control or to slam into the vehicle with little protection beyond a helmet to prevent injuries. If another driver was responsible for motorcyclist injury, they can be held accountable.

This is done through a personal injury suit. One can seek damages for all sorts of losses including medical expenses, lost wages and even loss of consortium. There are others to seek if applicable as well. Finding a solution that helps you seek out what an injured motorcyclist has lost is paramount.
