As motorcycle accident attorneys, we see accidents like this all too often. Motorcycles ride exceed their abilities for road conditions, and end up making a mistake. Sadly, in this instance, that mistake ended tragically. Motorcyclists can reduce the risk of such accidents, however, by taking a good motorcycle safety course, wearing bright and/or reflective clothing and equipment, and riding defensively.
