There are many reasons why a motorcycle accident can occur. Often it is the other motorist, not the motorcyclist, who is at fault. The main reason for an accident with a motorcycle is that the other driver simply does not see the motorcycle due to its relatively small size compared to the other cars and trucks on the road. Motorcyclist inexperience can also play a large part in an accident. Someone who is not familiar with the specifics of driving a motorcycle versus a car can have difficulty safely operating a motorcycle. Another risk factor is speed.

Motorcycle accidents, like any vehicular accidents, can have tragic and long-lasting effects. However, due to the significant power of a motorcycle and the lack of a protective barrier between a motorcyclist and the road or another vehicle, the consequences of an accident are frequently catastrophic. Only one out of every five riders escapes a motorcycle accident with minor injuries. In most occurrences, the motorcycle operator is at least seriously injured. Additionally, the chance of having an accident in the first place is magnified just through the operation of a motorcycle.
