Motorcycle drivers inherently take on risk when they take to the open roads, but that doesn't mean that motorcyclists' rights should be diminished. Other drivers often fail to see, or fail to respect, motorcycles on our roadways. Motorcycle riders are likely to suffer more serious injuries in the event of an accident, such as spinal injuries, brain injuries and other debilitating injuries that can significantly impact a person's ability to work or enjoy life.

Common Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents
- Distracted Driving — Drivers today are more distracted than ever before. Whether they are fumbling with their GPS, texting or surfing the internet on their smart phones, far too many drivers are not focused on the road. This is resulting in an increasing number of motorcycle accidents each year.
- Impaired Driving — Driving while under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances impairs a person's ability to operate a vehicle. This is one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents in Ohio.
- Failure to Yield — Too many drivers fail to check their blind spots when changing lanes or merging. It is particularly difficult to see motorcycles, and motorists have the responsibility to verify that it is safe to merge prior to doing so. Moreover, many drivers fail to see approaching motorcycles for whatever reason or fail to properly judge the distance.
