Motorcycle accidents usually end tragically for the motorcyclist. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are just as common as car accidents and are usually caused by drivers who are not paying attention. Motorcyclists often get hit when drivers decide to change lanes without looking over their shoulder.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Data shows in 2013 that the most harmful event for 2,448 (51%) of the 4,774 motorcycles involved in fatal crashes was a collision with a motor vehicle in transport. Additionally, there were an estimated 88,000 motorcyclists injured in 2013. The team at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers is here to remind you, that, it is vital to exercise caution, wear protective gear and obey the rules of the road. Helmets greatly reduce the risk of fatal injuries.
