If you own or ride a motorcycle regularly, then you also know that there are more risks associated with them than there are with riding in a passenger vehicle. Even if you take the steps necessary to stay safe, you are still susceptible to injuries due to dangerous drivers. A motorcyclist has little protection from the force of a vehicle slamming into it, especially at high speeds.
During the latest reporting year in Ohio, there were 157 motorcyclist deaths and 3,162 motorcyclist injuries as a result of vehicle crashes. We commonly see the following injuries in the aftermath of a motorcycle crash:
The costs that motorcycle crash victims incur can be tremendous. Medical bills can easily reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, but that is only part of the total. If a victim is unable to work while they recover, they could lose the income they need to support themselves and their families.
We know that regular passenger vehicle drivers often ignore motorcyclists on the roadway. This can have deadly consequences, especially when drivers follow cyclists too closely, disregard the speed limit, or change lanes improperly.
We also know that drivers impaired by drugs or alcohol and those who are distracted by their phones or other devices are especially dangerous to motorcyclists.
