In Massachusetts and elsewhere, motorcyclists take to the rode during the warm months. Because of this, motorists are often advised to double check their surroundings for these smaller vehicles, as they can easily go unnoticed in a driver's blind spot. When a driver fails to check their blind spots and mirrors or fails to yield to an oncoming motorcyclist, this could result in a serious and even fatal motorcycle collision.
The injuries that result from a motorcycle crash are some of the most serious one could suffer in an automobile collision. Unlike passenger vehicles, motorcyclists are not restrained in their vehicle and they do not have a hard exterior shell to protect them in the event of a crash. Although helmets and protective clothing can help guard against injuries, this does not prevent tragedy in all crashes.
