If you own and ride a motorcycle, you know that spring is one of the best times of year to ride. However, it’s also one of the most dangerous. That’s because roads may be dangerous due to potholes that formed over the winter. And because motorcyclists have been less common on the roads over the winter, drivers may be less likely to notice you than at any other time of year.
Motorcyclists face a double whammy when they’re hurt in crashes. First, they’re more likely to be severely injured, as their bikes have no built-in safety features. They instead must rely solely on their safety equipment, including their helmets, riding jackets, pants, gloves, and boots. Second, they’re likely to be partially or fully blamed for their crashes, even when they couldn’t possibly have avoided them.
Injured riders often face long recoveries and expensive medical bills. They need a lot of compensation for their accident-related expenses, and insurance companies often deny them the settlements they need. Unfortunately, injured riders may be too hurt and disabled to put up a fight, and that means countless motorcycle accident claims fall by the wayside.
