Among all the vehicles on the roadways, motorcyclists are in a unique position. When a motorcycle accident occurs, the rider doesn’t have a steel frame and crumple zones to protect him. The risk of serious injury or even death is much higher for motorcyclists than for other drivers. And motorcyclists know this. Which is why – contrary to some stereotypes – most motorcyclists are aware and responsible at all times while riding.
Think about it: when was the last time you saw a motorcyclist texting or fixing her makeup while speeding down the highway? It’s a safe bet the answer is never. On the other hand, to many drivers motorcycles are virtually invisible. Studies have shown that in almost 2/3rds of all motorcycle accidents the other driver didn’t see the bike. Even the most cautious motorcyclist can’t stop someone from making that left turn across his lane without warning.
This increased risk of serious injury causes some people to take the position that motorcyclists are just asking for it. It’s a sad but common bias people harbor. And it can affect the way motorcycle accident victims are treated.
