Without a doubt, riding a motorcycle can be an invigorating experience. This can be particularly true if you live in an area like Wilmington, where there’s no shortage of beautiful scenery. While riding a motorcycle can be an amazing experience, the other side of the coin is that it’s also not without its own definite set of risks and dangers. This is true no matter how careful you may be, and no matter how many precautions you take.
The truth of the matter is that highways and byways across the country can be very dangerous places for motorcyclists. The harsh and unfortunate reality is that many drivers often simply aren’t looking out for motorcyclists as they should - and the consequences can be significant. Statistically speaking, and largely because of the lack of physical protection that a motorcycle provides, motorcyclists suffer death or catastrophic injury at a much higher rate than other drivers on the road.
If you are a motorcyclist, you may already know that this is true. You may have arrived this page having suffered a serious injury yourself as a result of an accident that is not your fault. Some accidents commonly suffered by motorcyclists include:
