Definition of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists face increased risk on the road because they do not have as much protection when they are involved in an accident, they are more difficult to see and they are more likely to be obscured by other vehicles. Motorcyclists also face increased risk from hazardous driving conditions and roadways which have puddles, slick spots, ruts or uneven pavement. The legal rights of motorcyclists may also differ from those of other drivers. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident and your motorcycle injuries were caused by the negligence of another driver, contact an attorney.
