In many parts of the country, motorcyclists are excited for spring to come since it marks the end of a long, brutal winter and more favorable weather conditions for riding a motorcycle. However, this can lead to a higher likelihood of motorcycle accidents, so it is imperative for motorcyclists and those driving any type of vehicle to be aware of the risks associated with motorcycle collisions. Unfortunately, some motorcyclists will inevitably find themselves in the middle of an accident this season, and many of these accidents will prove fatal or lead to serious injuries.
There are many risk factors to watch out for during the spring when it comes to driving and riding a motorcycle. Many motorcyclists celebrate Memorial Day weekend by riding with their friends, but this can be dangerous if road conditions are poor, people on the road have been drinking or other concerns are present. During the spring, weather conditions such as fog and heavy rain can increase the chances of a crash, and some motorcyclists may be more likely to find themselves in a wreck because they have not ridden a motorcycle for several months.
Unfortunately, reckless drivers cause motorcycle crashes throughout the year. If you are struck by a driver who should not have been on the road, such as someone who was very tired or under the influence, you should take a careful look into your legal options. You may need to take legal action to account for the pain and suffering that you are going through.
