Motorcycles are often considered to be one of the most dangerous vehicles on the road and result in some of the more hazardous accidents. This is because the individual operating the motorcycle lacks the protection inherent in other motor vehicles, such as cars and trucks, while traveling at a comparable rate of speed. For example, motorcycles do not offer seat-belts or airbags for protection. This means that the rider more often than riders in other vehicles, experiences significant back, head, arm and leg injuries, and can often die as a result of the collision.
As these injuries usually require substantial medical treatment and therapy, it is extremely important for the motorcyclist to receive compensation to help him or her in their recovery. Motorcycle litigation can be very complex, and is unique from traditional motor vehicle accident litigation.
