During the warm months, Connecticut residents tend to spend more time outside. For some, this means parking their car and using a motorcycle to get to destinations or enjoy the nice weather. While motorcycles can be an effective and efficient way to get around, it is a small vehicle that is prone to many risks and dangers. Unfortunately not all motorists look for these vehicles when making maneuvers. This form of negligence could be the result of a serious and even fatal motorcycle crash.
Motorcycle crashes often happen unexpectedly. A rider is caught off guard when a vehicle enters his or her lane or direction of travel. Because motorcycles handle much differently than automobiles, a biker could be injured in a collision or in a maneuver to evade a collision. There is no outer shell to protect riders, therefore, they are frequently thrown off the bike when a crash occurs.
