Sometimes a motorcycle accident is just that – an accident that is no one’s fault. Yet unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents are the result of careless driving and result in injuries that could and should have been avoided. As a motorcyclist himself, Blake Green is highly aware of the dangers motorcycle accidents pose to fellow riders.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a motorcycle rider is 8 times more likely to be injured and 37 times more likely to die in a motorcycle accident than an occupant of a car in a car accident. Additionally, the number of motorcycle crash-related fatalities has doubled in the last 10 years.
The popularity of motorcycle riding has increased steadily over the last decade. Unfortunately, the increase in motorcycles on the road has led to the tragic reality of more motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle riders face countless dangers on the road, and are extremely vulnerable to serious injuries due to the lack of protection a motorcycle offers beyond a helmet and goggles.
Many motorcycle accidents occur when a motorist fails to see a motorcycle until it is too late to stop, or until the accident has already occurred. Distracted driving is the main cause of motorcycle accidents. Distractions like a motorist talking on a cell phone, texting and driving, or eating and drinking can result in motorcycle accidents with tragic consequences.
