The Ohio Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain that each year, thousands of motorcycle riders are injured or killed as a result of accidents along the highway. One of the leading contributing factors to these crashes is lack of experience.
Data from the Office of Criminal Justice Services states that 92 percent of motorcyclists involved in collisions taught themselves how to ride a motorized bike or were taught by friends or family members. A large portion of these riders did not have a proper endorsement on their licenses to operate motorcycles.
