3 situations that are very dangerous for motorcyclists

Motorcycle crashes are serious events that can cause catastrophic injuries to the motorcyclist. While some of these crashes are preventable, others might not be. One factor that all motorcyclists need to remember is that the vast majority of crashes that involve other vehicles are the fault of the other motorist. Many of these occur at intersections, so all motorcyclists must take extra care in these areas.

Everyone on the roads must watch for motorcyclists. These are smaller vehicles that can be easily hidden behind things like bushes or other vehicles. This is why there is such a risk of motorcyclists being struck at intersections.

Motorcyclists are also at risk of being involved in a crash that occurs when a car turns left and crosses their lane. It's a good idea to always try to leave yourself a way out or an escape plan in case you face this situation, but the onus really isn't on the motorcyclist. Instead, the motorist should be careful when they're turning. Checking the blind spots is imperative.

Parked cars are also a hazard for motorcyclists. If someone on the driver's side of the vehicle opens the door into the motorcyclist's path, they can be struck by the door. This is also a big issue for bicyclists. In both cases, it can lead to serious injuries, including those to the brain or spinal cord.

Motorcyclists who have suffered an injury in a crash should seek medical care. When another party caused the wreck, they may opt to pursue a claim for compensation. This helps to reduce the financial burden on the motorcyclist and shifts it to the negligent party who caused the crash.
