As a motorcycle rider, you face a special set of conditions related to operating your bike, which may increase your risk of a motorcycle accident. These conditions or circumstances include:
Harder to see and recognize. Cars and trucks are much easier to see and recognize than a much smaller motorcycle. Accidents are sometimes the result of a driver failing to see you at an intersection or in the lane beside them.
Reduced stability. Motorcycles are less stable than vehicles with four wheels. Especially when applying the brakes, making a sudden lane change or another maneuver at high speeds, this instability can lead to an accident.
Rider experience plays a role. Motorcycles require training, skills and experience to operate safely – more so than cars and basic trucks. Because of the training required, an inexperienced or poorly trained rider may have difficulty overcoming roadway obstacles, and could be injured as a result.
Hazards in the roadway. Motorcycles have to contend with uneven road surfaces, wet pavement, debris and objects in the road in a way that vehicles do not. These conditions can sometimes lead to a crash.
