Motorcyclists are entitled to share the same road as car drivers. Despite the smaller size of motorcycles, operators of cars have to exercise the highest degree of care in keeping a lookout for motorcyclists.
As a result of the freedom provided by a motorcycle to experience the open air, a crash may often result in devastating injuries to the rider. While helmets provide some degree of protection for head injuries, the rider may still experience fractures, road rash, abrasions and severe internal injuries.
In evaluating these cases, the speed of the vehicles becomes incredibly important in measuring reaction time to avoid an accident.
