Unseen Dangers

Across the country, motorcycles are popular, especially in states like Washington where the views are simply breathtaking. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are also one of the most vulnerable groups on the roadway.

Even when a motorcyclist wears a helmet, it cannot protect them from serious harm if they are hit hard enough. When you consider just how exposed a motorcyclist is, you begin to understand why they sustain such serious injuries. It is not uncommon to see the following as a result of a motorcycle accident:
