Riding Your Motorcycle in Traffic
The Hurt Report has indicated what most motorcyclists know very well: the majority of multiple-vehicle motorcycle accidents occur because another driver failed to recognize the right-of-way of a motorcycle or impeded the lane of a motorcyclist. Either of these negligent actions by a motorist can endanger the welfare of a motorcyclist. High traffic situations serve to further elevate the danger because of the close proximity of motorcycles and other vehicles.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of another motorist, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate.
