Protecting The Rights Of Responsible Motorcyclists

Amongst all the types of vehicle operators on the road today, motorcyclists are at the highest risk of suffering serious injury or death when involved in an accident. This is largely due to the minimal protection between them and the road. While wearing a protective helmet can significantly decrease the risk, motorcyclists are still left vulnerable in a variety of other ways.

What to Do After An Accident

ANSWERS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Check Your Safety

Immediately following your accident, check to see if you or any of your passengers have been seriously hurt. If there is need to call for 911, do so. If not, call the police and wait for them to arrive. Do not move your vehicle.

Speak With Police

Once police arrive, they will interview you about exactly what happened. Be as detailed as you can, but don’t speculate—it’s okay to say you don’t know. It’s also advised that you don’t diagnose yourself, either. Even if you feel unharmed, you may not feel residual injuries until hours or days after your accident.

Gather Information

You will want to exchange information with the other driver, including names, addresses, and insurance information. If you are able, also take pictures with your phone of the damage to your car or other telling details of the accident. If there are lingering witnesses, get their contact information, as well. Later on, if you have sustained injuries, even minor ones, photograph these, as well.

Common Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents

Unfortunately, motorcyclists often get an unjustified bad rap from other drivers. The fact of the matter is that the vast majority of them actually operate their motorcycle in a very safe and responsible manner. Often times, the cause of accidents involving these vehicles is due to other drivers not knowing how to safely interact with them on the road. From aggressive driving and tailgating to failing to see motorcycles, there are numerous causes of accidents that are not the fault of the motorcyclist.

Some of the factors that are commonly involved in motorcycle accidents include:

DEFECTIVE MOTORCYCLE PARTS

 


TAILGATING AND OTHER FORMS OF AGGRESSIVE DRIVING

 


DRIVERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS OR ALCOHOL

 

DRIVERS SPEEDING OR BREAKING TRAFFIC LAWS

 


DRIVERS FAILING TO SEE MOTORCYCLES WHEN CHANGING LANES

 


DRIVERS PULLING OUT IN FRONT OF A MOTORCYCLE RIDER
