Motorcycles have become increasingly popular in recent years. Due to the inherent nature of motorcycles, they are far less crashworthy than closed vehicles. They are less visible to other drivers and less stable than four-wheeled vehicles. As a result, motorcycles and their passengers are more vulnerable to the hazards of travel than drivers or passengers in closed vehicles. In 2009 4,462 motorcyclists were killed, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. There were 90,000 motorcyclists injured during 2009.
While the fault of the motorcycle accident can be the fault of a motorcycle driver, many times other drivers cause accidents involving motorcycles. Because of a motorcycle’s relatively small size, many drivers of passenger cars and trucks involved in motorcycle accidents do not see motorcyclists. Even if they check their mirrors before changing lanes or turning, the motorcycle can be in the car’s blind spot and an accident may result. It is not uncommon for a driver of a vehicle to pull out in front of a motorcyclist simply because they did not see him.
Motorcycle accidents can also be caused by defects in the motorcycle itself. Those defects can be in the braking system, handling systems or the tires. Also, the injuries can be compounded by defects in helmets and other protective gear.
