When a motorcycle is involved in a traffic accident with a car, there is a greater likelihood that the motorcyclist will suffer more injuries than the car driver. After all, those inside a car are protected by a heavy steel frame, airbags, and other safety features. Even though a motorcyclist may have ridden safely and driven defensively for years, a traffic accident can still occur without warning. Unfortunately, insurance companies frequently jump to conclusions and blame the motorcyclist for the crash due to stereotypes.
Motorcycle laws can vary widely from one state to the next. Here in Savannah GA, there is a requirement for all riders to wear helmets and eye protection to help cut down on motorcycle injuries. Additionally, there are some stringent DUI laws in place to also help prevent collisions. Sadly, accidents do continue to happen despite such strict safety measures.
