Many factors contribute to the fact that motorcycle accidents are often more dangerous than other types of accidents. One of these is the differences in the sizes of the vehicles involved-a passenger vehicle provides more protection than a motorcycle does in the event of an accident. In addition to this, bikers themselves have little protection-people in a car can protect themselves with a seatbelt, which it is mandatory to wear but bikers often only have kneepads to protect themselves. Wearing a helmet is not even mandatory after the age of 17. Readers of the Cincinnati Car Accident Blog may have read the recent post on motorcycle accidents and the importance of wearing them to reduce injuries and even possible death in the event of a crash.
An unexpected accident can have serious repercussions for all those involved, especially if one of the victims of the accident suffers catastrophic injuries. A motorcycle stunt man is under investigation for his role in a possible seventh drunken driving accident in Ohio that has resulted in severe injuries for one of the victims involved in the accident.
