Some people wrongly stereotype bikers as daredevils. When it comes to accidents involving a motorcyclist and a car driver, this prejudice can lead to unfair assumptions or even costly accusations of fault. Jim Ross is a motorcycle rider, and he understands that bikers have just as much right to be safe on the road as any other driver.
One all-too common claim that drivers make after an accident with a motorcycle, is “he came out of nowhere!” This may certainly seem to be the case due to a motorcyclists’ relatively small visual profile. However, it is not possible according to the laws of physics, and it is not an excuse in the eyes of the law.
Drivers must look out for all types of vehicles, including motorcycles. Not paying attention is negligence, and means the other driver may be responsible for the accident, and your damages. If you’re in an accident and the other driver suggests you came out of nowhere, make a note of it and ask the responding police officer to do the same.
