Motorcyclists often do not have equal rights on the road.
Though the rules specified in the drivers’ manual apply equally to motorists and motorcyclists, riders tend to experience more discrimination than drivers of other vehicles. When motorcycle accidents occur, blame is often assigned to the rider. The idea seems to be that motorcycle riders are reckless and irresponsible. However, more often than not, the car or truck driver is at fault.
In addition, riders have a much greater chance of being seriously injured or even killed in an accident. It is not uncommon for them to sustain traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or burn injuries.
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, follow if possible the standard procedure of calling the police to file a report, exchanging contact and insurance information with the other driver, and obtaining contact information for witnesses. After seeking medical care, call Woods Law Firm.
