Motorcycles can be very dangerous. Even when the rider exercises extreme caution and uses all necessary protective gear, catastrophic accidents can still happen. Negligent parties and hazardous road conditions can cause serious injury or death to a biker.
Because motorcyclists are not as protected as those driving in a car, protected by seatbelts and encased in a sturdy metal vehicle frame, motorcycle accidents are often serious or even fatal.
