As summer approaches, motorcyclists are taking advantage of the warmer weather by being more present on the roadways. Their size and exposure make motorcyclists vulnerable to serious accidents, especially involving other vehicles. All drivers are required to be aware of their surroundings and must devote their full attention to operating their vehicle. Many accidents occur due to the negligence of another driver. If you have been injured or have lost a loved one, contacting a motorcycle accident lawyer is important to hold the negligent driver responsible and to recover compensation.
