Motorcyclists are especially susceptible to accidents because motorcycle drivers are often overlooked by other drivers due to their size. Often times the injuries received in a motorcycle accident are serious, long-lasting and catastrophic because motorcycles do not provide riders with adequate protection from serious injury like an automobile does.
