Due to the open nature of a motorcycle and lack of significant safety features, a motorcyclist may be extremely vulnerable when an accident occurs. The rider may incur a range of personal injuries or even a fatality during a crash. Unfortunately, in some cases, drivers may fail to use caution when driving their vehicles in the vicinity of a motorcycle or may not see the bike until it is too late.
