Motorcycle Accidents Archives

Motorcycle safety and autonomous vehicles

When a car and a motorcycle collide, the fault often lies with the driver of the automobile. The typical excuse from the driver is that he or she never saw the motorcycle. In other words, driver error is the most likely cause of crashes involving cars and motorcycles. Given that, should motorcyclists be enthusiastic about the possibility of self-driving cars?

Motorcycle Accident Settlements And Jury Verdicts

Motorcycles are growing in popularity. Unfortunately, that also means that motorcycle accidents are on the rise. With more than 8 million motorcycles on American roads, perhaps it is unsurprising that nearly 100,000 motorcyclists are injured each year. Among those injured riders are many who were injured through the negligent actions of other drivers. Protecting those motorcyclists is an important job.

Accidents And Motorcycle Insurance

It is illegal to drive your motorcycle on Ohio roads without meeting certain minimum requirements for financial responsibility. Most riders meet that standard by buying motorcycle insurance. Insurance coverage is tied to the vehicle, not the individual. If you have an auto insurance policy for a car, that is not sufficient to allow you to ride your motorcycle legally. Given that motorcycle insurance is more or less required for Ohio riders, it is natural to wonder exactly what you are getting for your money.

Handling Motorcycle Accidents When There Is No Contact Between The At-Fault Driver And Motorcycle

Most experienced motorcyclists attempt to avoid collisions by laying down the bike prior to impact. The most common scenario for laying down a bike occurs when a passenger car or truck drives into the oncoming path of the motorcycle by failing to yield the legal right of way to the motorcyclist. Because many riders are experienced, they successfully avoid collisions in these situations.

Keep Riding Or Store Your Motorcycle?

For many, the 2015 motorcycle season is over in Ohio. For some, the hope of a few more sunny days in the 50s is keeping their bikes out of storage. There are some riders, however, who will continue to ride throughout the winter. While Ohio does not have ideal weather for year-round motorcycling, some choose to continue riding long after temperatures have dropped. With proper preparation and equipment, it is possible to continue to ride your motorcycle safely. Unfortunately, motorists may be even less likely than usual to keep an eye out for motorcyclists.
