Motorcyclist Injury Litigation Experts in Lehigh Valley
Motorcycle riders face many different challenges that are not realized by automobile drivers. The biggest challenge of riding a motorcycle often falls more on the other motoring traffic members, and that is the hope that others can see the motorcycle rider. Often auto drivers are oblivious to motorcycles on the roadway. This causes the largest threat to the safety of the motorcycle rider. Much like bicycles, motorcycles are relatively smaller than most cars, which makes them much harder to see. Motorcyclists can become invisible in an automobile's blind spot causing an inherent danger to the rider.
A motorcycle is far more likely to overturn due to being on only two wheels and far more likely to be affected by road spills and wet, slippery road surfaces.
