Can negligence toward motorcyclists cause crashes?

When motorcyclists in Ohio hit the road, you're unfortunately taking a bigger risk than most. Other vehicles are oftenn at fault for causing motorcycle-related incidents because drivers do not notice or see you on the road. In turn, this leads to potentially catastrophic injury because of your vehicle size. Mezibov Butler highlights the exact dangers that negligent behavior toward motorcyclists can cause.

Driver negligence unfortunately contributes to many crashes, especially with motorcyclists. Sometimes, these drivers won't check all directions carefully before making turns into traffic. Other times, they do not stop long enough to make sure their blind spot is clear before switching lanes.

Even if you are wearing reflective gear or bright clothing as is oftenn suggested, drivers may become distracted on the road. Regardless of how long their eyes are away from the road, they risk causing a crash. Because your vehicle is so small, they may not notice it in time to stop, putting you at an even greater risk.

Outside of your size, many drivers simply don't understand the etiquette behind interacting with motorcycles. This can lead to said drivers making poor choices when trying to share the road with you. Unfortunately, these decisions will usually impact you more than them.

If you have been involved in a motorcycle crash and are dealing with serious injury because of it, consider contacting an attorney for more information. Additionally, you can take a look at our web page, linked here, if you are considering seeking financial compensation for your suffering.
