Motorcycle riders are often the victim of negligence through no fault of their own. Many people assume that bikers are reckless, but at Taylor King Law, we know they are some of the most responsible drivers on the road. In 2015 alone, 78 motorcycle drivers lost their lives in accidents in Arkansas. Of those accidents, 26% were caused by another driver who crossed the centerline or turned left in front of the motorcycle. This statistic indicates a need for motorists to keep a lookout for bikers and give them space on the road.
More troubling, a motorcycle driver is 26 more times likely than a car passenger to be fatally injured in a crash. While motorcycles account for only 3% of the vehicles on the road, they account for 14% of road fatalities, a startling statistic.
