Ducati takes safety measures due the incresing number of accidents
Motorcycles such as the Ducati have enjoyed a recent surge in popularity as traffic becomes increasingly congested on our roads and highways. While motorcycles enthusiasts are excited about the rise in interest, statistics show that motorcycle accidents typically account for a disproportionately high number of serious injuries – from broken bones to paralysis – and sometimes even death.
Motorcycle riders already face an unfair bias from both society and the legal system. Although cyclists are usually blamed by society for the frequent and dangerous accidents motorcycles, accident statistics show that in 80% of all multi-vehicle accidents involving motorcycles, the motorcyclist is not at fault. Many accidents are caused by auto and truck drivers failing to yield to the rider because they do not see them, turning directly in front of a motorcyclist, or pulling out in front of the rider.
The maker of Ducati bikes has had its share of safety concerns already – some 2003 models were recalled because the front brake hose sometimes became trapped between the lower steering flange and the steering lock peg when the vehicle was cornering. If you’ve been injured in a Ducati motorcycle accident, you know firsthand the hurdles that innocent riders and/or bystanders can face.
You deserve to have someone on your side that understands the complexities of the legal process and can help you recover your rightful reparations.
