Motorcycle Passenger and Sidecar Safety
Some motorcyclists enjoy riding with passengers. These passengers may be mounted on the bike behind the person handling the motorcycle or in an adjoining sidecar in some instances. Because passengers may be less familiar with motorcycle safety, and because they may not have as much protective equipment, they are particularly vulnerable to serious injury in the event of a collision.
If you were riding as a passenger on a motorcycle when it was involved in an accident attributable to the negligence of a party other than the rider, it may be necessary to file a civil claim seeking compensation for your injuries.

How Passengers Affect a Bike
Riding a motorcycle is different than operating a typical passenger car in many ways, one of the most important of which is that a bike is incredibly sensitive to changes in weight distribution. As a consequence, handling a motorcycle with an additional passenger is likely to feel awkward for a biker accustomed to riding alone. Refining one’s experience while carrying a passenger can help to prevent accidents that occur due to unbalanced lane changes, turns, sudden acceleration, and braking.
