A Washington or Oregon Motorcycle Accident Can Be Severe
Motorcycles offer an exciting way to experience the open road in a way that can hardly be matched by driving a car. They're fun and economical, but they do carry risks. While drivers and passengers in cars have airbags and seatbelts to protect them, motorcycle riders have relatively little crash protection.
Motorcycle safety is important and taking the proper precautions can reduce risks. But motorcycle accidents happen. When a car or a truck collides with a motorcycle, the occupants in the car or truck often will walk away without a scratch. Motorcycle riders are often not so lucky. Often, they face severe and debilitating injuries or possibly even death.
