There’s nothing like the freedom and exhilaration of riding a motorcycle, and if you’ve been riding for any amount of time at all, you know how scary it can be when other drivers don’t see you, don’t acknowledge your existence, or act as if you’re a stable, four-wheeled vehicle rather than a two-wheeled one that requires your balance to stay upright.
It’s not always the case that motorcycle accidents are caused by the other driver, but it happens more frequently than it should. Furthermore, the motorcycle rider is almost always the victim of far greater injuries.
In a report recently released by the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO), it was stated that there were over 1,700 accidents in Oklahoma that involved motorcycles—with over 77% of riders being injured as a result of those collisions (approximately 1,350 victims). Statistics like these reinforce the dangers that motorcycle riders face whenever they are on our roads.
Needless to say, when a car accident involves a motorcycle, the motorcyclist is at a severe disadvantage. Riders are often seriously injured simply due to the lack of protection that a motorcycle offers—especially when compared to that of car or truck.
