Why do so many motorcyclists get hit?

If you're a motorcyclist who was lucky enough to survive an accident with a vehicle, chances are good that you wondered, "How did the driver not see me?"


Eyes may be the windows to our souls, but they are not cameras. Images are spotted by the eyes and processed by the brain before forming the mental images we see.

All of this takes place in a second, constantly changing our visual screens. Sometimes the system overloads and objects move faster and more unexpectedly than the eye and brain can process. That can set the scene for a motorcycle-vehicle collision.

When motorists are navigating familiar roads, they are lulled into a sense of security -- the fence is on the right side, there's the old oak, go past the school and the store... Whoa, where'd that motorcycle come from?

Sometimes drivers don't perceive things that are right in their field of vision. A fast-moving motorcycle may be one of them, especially if they have been distracted behind the wheel.

Whatever the reason for the other driver's negligence, if you are injured in a motorcycle wreck with an at-fault motorist, we can help you get the compensation to which you are entitled for your injuries, including medical care, rehabilitation, lost wages and other damages.

We want you to focus on healing and resuming your old life to the best of your abilities. We will handle the legal matters and build a solid case for compensation from the other driver's insurance company. We offer our clients advice and guidance when they need it most.
