There is a mistaken train of thought that leads some people to believe that motorcycle riders are always in the wrong when the biker is involved in an accident. That, however, isn't the case. Despite that common thinking, the motorcycle rider isn't accepting the risks of negligent drivers every time he or she gets on a motorcycle. Other drivers have the responsibility to watch out for motorcycles while they are driving.
For motorcycle riders, being injured in a car accident is often a very serious event. Motorcycle riders are more likely to suffer from a severe injury in the accident. Spinal cord injuries, road rash, crushing injuries, broken bones and other serious injuries are possible. Head injuries are also possible, even if the biker is wearing a helmet.
