Why Driver Negligence Causes Motorcycle Accidents
Most motorcycle riders are pretty passionate about their bikes. Motorcycles are fuel efficient, they can save you hours in 5:00 traffic, and they allow you the freedom of the open road. Unfortunately, because of their small size and lack of protection, motorcyclists' risk of a fatal crash are 35 times greater than a driver of a passenger vehicle. (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration)
No amount of safety training, helmet use, or protective clothing will fully protect a motorcyclist from a careless or negligent driver. From road rash to paralysis, motorcycle accidents frequently result in:
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Facial scarring and disfigurement
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Wrongful death
The Hurt Report, published with data collected in Los Angeles concluded the following:
- 75% of motorcycle accidents involved a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle.
- Almost 50% of the fatal accidents were alcohol-related.
- With multiple vehicle accidents, the driver of the other vehicle violated the motorcyclist's right of way in two-thirds of the accidents.
- The predominant cause of motorcycle accidents was the failure of the motorist to observe the motorcycle in traffic.

Insurance companies are for-profit businesses that maintain their bottom line by paying you as little as possible so they can maximize their profits.
