You are a motorcyclist who knows that it is not yourself you have to worry about, but the others around you. You know the other drivers around you will be the ones who can ruin your commute to work or your afternoon ride. You may be a rider on your crotch-rocket with your crash pants, carbon fiber gloves, and new helmet on, or you may be riding your Harley with your leathers, vest, and half-helmets on; either way, you are the one who is following the laws of the road.
As a motorcyclist, you are not like the other drivers on the road; you are without the protection of a metal frame surrounding your body. The protection you do have is what you are wearing. It helps to save your palms, skin, and some head injury; however, you will still be seriously injured if hit by a car or truck. You are in worse condition than a driver who is hit while driving in a car.
After an accident, you will be suffering from injuries immediately. Motorcycle accidents typically have immediate pain and not pain that arises a few days later. Either way, you are not in the same condition you were in before the accident. Now you have pain and are suffering from an accident that was not your fault. You know the medical bills are going to be expensive. After suffering injuries, you realize what real life is about: you cannot work and are losing wages, you have to go through months of medical services to get your body feeling good again, you are in constant pain from doing daily activities, you cannot fully function with your children, you have to miss more work to go to medical appointments, you cannot focus on schoolwork…
Motorcycle accidents require quick action. After the collision happens, a quick and immediate investigation of the accident is crucial to determine who is at fault and to preserve any evidence that is needed for a lawsuit. Without this quick action, evidence could be lost that is beneficial to getting you the right settlement. Do not be mistaken, you are not at fault simply because the other driver did not see you. You are a driver on the road and the laws of the road apply to you the same as they apply to the other driver. If they did not see you, their inattention is the cause of the accident. As we all know from our experiences on motorcycles, the other driver’s inattention is the thing to worry most about when it comes to riding.
