You deserve compensation after a motorcycle crash

There are two types of people: those who want to avoid accidents entirely and those who want to know that if they do have an accident, they can avoid the results. The first is called the Anti-SUV mentality, and the second is called the SUV mentality. Most common in America is the first; the goal seems to be to buy a large vehicle. Doing this means that if you're ever in a collision, you're less likely to get injured. The problem with that is that for each vehicle that is on the road, there is usually another that is even larger. Those who drive SUVs may think they're safe, but there are also risks like tipping over easily or having poor maneuverability.

Others may opt to buy the vehicles they want, like motorcycles or small cars hoping to completely avoid accidents. Motorcycle riders, for instance, believe that the power of a motorcycle is in its flexibility; it maneuvers well, and it's easier to avoid some kinds of collisions. The goal of a motorcyclist is to avoid accidents completely, because the he or she is vulnerable while riding.

So, which of these is actually better? Some would argue that the Anti-SUV mentality is better because those who think that way are taking responsibility for their actions and trying to prevent accidents, not just prevent injuries. Riders can see more, evade more easily and are typically more attentive to the road.

Regardless of what you drive, if you're impacted by another driver, it's important to know what happened so you can seek compensation to cover your medical care, lost wages and other financial losses. Our website has more about motorcycling injuries and how you should proceed.
