Why are crashes so dangerous for motorcyclists?

Louisiana motorcyclists could use a helping hand when it comes to legal representation after an accident. McGlynn, Glisson & Mouton, injury attorneys, are here to help you get back on your feet after you've suffered in a crash.

There are many reasons as to why you're more at risk than other drivers while on the road. The first and most impactful is your size versus the size of other vehicles. A motorcycle is much smaller and offers far less protection than a car. You're likely to feel more of the impact than a driver in a covered vehicle. This is why even with the proper protective equipment like a helmet or guards, you could still face serious injury.

Additionally, your small size can contribute to visibility issues that put you at even greater risk. Other drivers could have trouble spotting you on the road, even if you signal properly and have additional help in making yourself visible. This is why it's suggested for motorcyclists to avoid a driver's blind spot as often as possible, but mistakes can still happen.

Your speed is also a factor. Motorcycles are capable of going very quickly and weaving or turning sharply. It's best to avoid anything that might be considered "darting", but often times, cars can still hit you just because of the aforementioned issue with your vehicle size.

If you have been injured in a crash with another vehicle and left with severe injury, take a look at our web page on motorcycle crashes. We can help you through the recovery process, especially when it comes to options regarding seeking compensation for your injury.
