Motorcycle accidents are one type of accident that our law office sees often. Not only do these accidents happen frequently, but the results of them are often very serious. There are often injuries sustained by the motorcyclist in such accidents due to the lack of protection that the motorcyclists has on their bike.
It is recommended that motorcyclists wear protective gear such as a jacket, gloves, helmet, and boots. Wearing the recommended gear can help to prevent road rash in the event of an accident, and helmets are very important to protect a motorcyclists from serious damage when involved in an accident. While some motorcyclist do in fact wear the appropriate gear, the chances of suffering serious injuries are still very high.
Many motorcycle accidents are caused by other motorists, often failing to see the motorcyclist on the road. Motorcycles are sometimes more difficult to notice due to their smaller size on the road, but it is imperative for drivers to be fully aware of their surroundings when on the road. The failure to notice a motorcycle can result in a serious collision and injury.
The NHTSA has been promoting their Share the Road campaign, brining awareness to the responsibility of motorists to share the road to motorcyclists, as well as bicyclists. Our office supports this campaign and we hope that by sharing their message, we can prevent future motorcycle accidents.
