Whether you’re a motorcycle rider in Ohio or California or any other state in the Union, there is one thing that is as deadly as anything on our nation’s highways for bikers and that is, another vehicle making an unsafe lane change and clipping the motorcycle rider. Because of the speeds at which most all vehicles including bikes are traveling, there are rare occasions where the bike rider is able to regain control but, the majority of the time, this collision results in a lay down and ejectment onto a busy highway. If the initial impact does not cause extreme bodily harm such as fractures, lacerations, abrasions (road rash), internal bleeding or any number of other serious medical conditions, the fact that the rider is now in the roadway and facing oncoming traffic is cause for further injury or death.
