In the minds of most drivers, motor vehicle accidents are not a serious concern. The fact is that such accidents are relatively rare considering how many people get behind the wheel of a car every day, so the likelihood of actually being in an accident is low. The chances of being in a serious, life-changing accident are even lower because some accidents simply involve minor bruises or dents in the vehicles. Victims of these accidents likely feel that pursuing legal action would be more trouble than it is worth.
Unfortunately, serious accidents do happen, and they can happen to anyone. While this mentality may be understandable, it is not recommended. For the vast majority of motorcyclists, this mentality is not an issue, because most motorcyclists understand that the risk of a serious accident is simply higher for them. In nearly every case, they do not have the luxury of a minor accident that only causes a few bruises.
The truth is that motorcyclists face a serious risk of accidents because many other drivers do not treat bikers with the respect and attention that they deserve. In fact, both because motorcycles are so small, and drivers are simply not used to seeing them, there are many incidents in which a driver changes into an occupied lane without even noticing the motorcyclist that is riding directly adjacent. A resulting collision could see the motorcyclist thrown from his or her bike and lucky to be alive.
