Motorcycle accidents -- dangers attached to being a biker

Riding a bike on the open road may be the epitome of freedom, and the summer months are the best time to spend on the open road, according to avid Californian bikers. That is just one side of the story, however. The other side claims that biking is a lot riskier than driving a car.

It is much easier to maintain control of a car than a bike. Cars also offer more protection, as drivers are enclosed in a car's body, while a motorcycle offers no extra protection in the case of an accident. This lack of protection exposes a biker to a greater risk of death or serious injury.

Certain motorcycles are considered to be riskier than others. Standard bikes and cruisers are safer than Supersport bikes. In fact, a cyclist driving a Supersport bike is much more likely to die in an accident.

It is true that bike helmets are an important part of the safety equipment of motorcyclists. Wearing a helmet can protect a biker from serious head injuries and even save lives. Bikes with antilock braking systems are also safer, as this prevents the wheels from locking and the bike skidding.

While bikers have certain precautionary measures they may take to protect themselves from serious injury, there is very little they can do against inattentive and negligent drivers. California bikers seriously injured in an accident caused by the recklessness or negligence of another person have the option to file a wrongful death or personal injury claim against the alleged reckless driver. Successfully litigated wrongful death claims may provide reimbursement of monetary damages. Any damages awarded may assist the families of deceased victims in recovering from the stress of unexpected expenses caused by a motorcycle wreck or other motor vehicle accident.
