The NHSTA recommends that motorcycle riders follow safety practices like increasing visibility by turning headlights on, avoiding drinking and driving, being aware of road and weather conditions, as well as where other drivers are on the road, always abiding by traffic laws, and being very cautious while driving through intersections or when merging into traffic. However, even when these guidelines are followed, sometimes accidents still happen.

More than 100,000 motorcyclists have died in traffic crashes in the last 50 years, according to the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration. Motorcycle accidents normally occur because another driver has been negligent, and unfortunately, these accidents frequently result in death or serious personal injury. The more fragile design of a motorcycle when compared to a car means that motorcycle riders face particular dangers and difficulties on the road. In fact, in 2000, motorcyclists were about 21 times as likely as passenger car occupants to die in motor vehicle traffic crashes and four times as likely to be injured in an accident.
Liability for motorcycle accidents is usually determined by using the rule that the less careful, or negligent, person involved in the accident is the one who must pay for the damages suffered by the other, more cautious person in the accident. To determine liability with clarity, the attorney you hire will look at the accident report to figure out exactly what happened. In cases where the details of the accident are unclear, he may even hire an accident reconstructionist to clarify any doubts.
