Motorcycles provide little protection from the elements and also contain no safety features for the riders. These factors put motorcycle riders at-risk for incurring personal injuries or even fatalities in a motorcycle crash. Oftentimes, individuals who are involved in motorcycle crashes endure catastrophic injuries which interfere with their ability to earn an income and may cause them lifelong mental and emotional distress.
