Though motorcyclists have the same rights when driving on public roadways, motorists commonly cause accidents when they fail to yield the right of way, make improper lane changes, fail to check blind spots, and misjudge the speed at which motorcyclists are traveling. Motorcyclists can also become victims of motor vehicle accidents as a result of unsafe road conditions.
Unlike motorists, who have the protection of both the airbags and structure of a vehicle when involved in an accident, motorcyclists have only a helmet and protective clothing to protect them. As such they are at a greater risk of injuries such as road rash and broken bones or fractures. More commonly, accidents will result in more serious injures such as:
- Brain injures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Compound fractures
