Unfortunately, many people perceive motorcycle riders as reckless outlaws who ride with little regard for traffic laws. A driver who hits a motorcycle rider may blame the rider for the crash.

The at-fault driver may argue the motorcycle rider was not seen because he or she was doing something illegal, careless or reckless. Motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles on the road. Drivers often fail to observe them. In any event, even if you are found to be partially at fault for the crash, you may still be entitled to some compensation for your injuries and damages.
