Collisions between motorcycles and other motor vehicles can be a very serious type of accident. Such accidents can result in motorcyclists suffering injuries. Such injuries can be very impactful on a motorcyclist. For example, such injuries can sometimes have impacts on a motorcyclist's ability to work.
Thus, it is very important for motor vehicle drivers to not engage in conduct which could cause motorcycle accidents. Some examples of conduct that can lead to such accidents occurring include: careless/reckless driving, failing to watch for motorcycles when driving, failing to obey traffic signs/signals and failing to obey traffic laws.
