Motorcycles are not constructed to protect a passenger or operator in the event of a crash. Motorcycle riders involved in a collision are far more likely to be injured or die than a person in a passenger car. A major advantage, however, is that a motorcycle is far more maneuverable. The ability to stop or swerve quickly has been the saving of many riders in a tight spot. Defensive riding along with constant vigilance has prevented thousands of potentially serious accidents. If, despite your best efforts, you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you talk to a New London motorcycle accident attorney who has a real working knowledge of these accidents.
