Car drivers at fault in most car-motorcycle collisions

May is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, in which the National Safety Council and other organizations educate the public about the unique dangers faced by motorcyclists. While many of this month's activities are geared toward motorcycle riders, the organizers also hope to attract the attention of car and truck drivers. It is crucial to traffic safety that other drivers are made aware of the two-wheeled vehicles sharing the roads with them.

Researchers say that most accidents involving a car-motorcycle collision are caused by car drivers who violate a motorcyclist's right of way. According to some reports, this is the case in as many as two-thirds of car-motorcycle collisions.

Since motorcycles are so much smaller than cars, inattentive drivers can easily miss seeing them until it is too late. And, because motorcycles have few of the safety features cars do, even a tap from a larger vehicle can lead to serious injury for the motorcyclist.

When a person is injured through the negligence of another party, the injured may seek compensation for damages through a personal injury lawsuit. In the case of a motorcycle accident, the damages may include enormous medical bills, lost wages and more. Since these accidents so often lead to permanent injury, the damages can be enormous. The injured and their families need all the help they can get.

People who have been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else's negligence can speak to an attorney with experience in personal injury law. A lawyer can help the injured and their family members understand their legal options for pursuing compensation.
