The primary reason for motorcycle accidents is that automobile drivers don’t take notice of the large number of motorcycles registered in the US, and correlative failure to look out for or anticipate their presence on the roadway. Motorcycles and their operators have the same rights as other motor vehicles under the law.

Motorcycle accidents almost always result in serious injuries, extensive medical bills, and long-term treatments which can lead to lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional turmoil and so much more.
