Rainy conditions could lead to tragic motorcycle crashes

On Behalf of | Sep 25, 2020 | Motorcycle Accidents |

Riding a motorcycle is not the same as operating a car. While both are motor vehicle, each one rides differently, faces different risks on the road and has distinct safety features specific to the vehicle and the potential dangers it faces. Additionally, each vehicle handles differently in inclement weather. While California riders do not often find themselves operating their bikes in the snow, operating a motorcycle during rainfall is rather common. Just like there are risks for an accident when it is sunny out, there are heightened risks for a motorcycle accident when operating a motorcycle during the rain.

Operating a motorcycle in the rain

Choosing to ride a motorcycle in the rain means operating a motorcycle with greater risks due to the weather conditions. While a light rain may seem like a minor concern, the reality is that even light rain could lead to slippery conditions due to erosion or landslides. Additionally, rainfall can alter visibility, even when it is not heavy rain. Thus, other motorists may not be able to see a motorcyclist traveling near them.

Hazards after the rain

Even after a heavy rainfall, slippery conditions can exist for motorcyclists and other motorists. Additionally, puddle spots could cause any motorists to hydroplane, lose control of their vehicle or even cause a splash that inhibits visibility. Finally, animals will often emerge following a heavy rain. This could lead to a greater chance of animals in the roadway and motorists breaking or swerving to avoid them. This could also be the cause of an accident.

The aftermath of a motorcycle crash can be tragic. Unlike a passenger vehicle, a hard exterior shell does not protect a motorcyclist. This often causes a rider to be thrown off their bike following impact with another vehicle. This can result is serious and even fatal injuries. Thus, it is important for victims and their loved ones to understand the legal rights afforded to them. A personal injury action or wrongful death suit may be a valuable step to take. These civil actions not only seek to hold a liable party accountable for the accident but the damages that were caused by it. This can help one secure compensation to address the losses suffered.
