Motorcycle accidents lead to more personal injuries and deaths per accident than auto accidents. If you’re engaged in an auto accident and you’re on the motorcycle, you’re 3 times more likely to be hurt and 14 times more likely to be killed. Helmet laws that are in place in most states are helping to reduce these numbers, yet motorcyclists are still at greater risk of injury or death than those in passenger cars.

In most fatal and injury accident claims involving motorbikes, riders face stereotypes as reckless people with death wishes, but we know that is not the case. Insurance providers play on this to assist in pinning blame for the accident upon a rider. Realistically, it is drivers who take chances with other’s lives on the road by not looking prior to changing lanes or turning, following too closely, and other reckless behaviors, who will be most oftentimes responsible.
It’s always smart to take precautions while riding a motorbike. Put on a helmet and make your passengers do so, as well. Obey all traffic laws, particularly as it comes to passing, speeding and following too close behind another vehicle. Street hazards pose a greater threat to smaller 2-wheel cars, therefore, be alert to cracks, bumps in the street, loose gravel, or other hazardous conditions which may cause you to lose control.
