Motorcycles are very susceptible to car doors opening unexpectedly. The drivers of parked automobiles usually are not looking for motorcyclists as they exit their vehicles, often swinging their car doors open as they arrive at their destination. Because of the laws that dictate which side of the lane a motorcyclist must maintain his position in, this can be an especially treacherous road hazard./
Most car drivers and passengers exiting their vehicles, even though they may be observing cautiously, still may not see the motorcycle driver approaching. This can lead to severe injury to the motorcycle driver. In this case the car is the negligent party in this situation, and you can seek monetary compensation from the driver of the vehicle.
