A man died recently after he crashed his motorcycle while traveling approximately 100 mph. The state police say that they spotted the motorcycle traveling 77 in a 55 mph zone. The trooper chased the individual but backed off when the bike increased its speed.
The driver of the motorcycle lost control as he tried to navigate a turn. Allen Reed, 23, was thrown from the motorcycle bike and suffered severe injuries. Although he was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, he tragically died a short time after being taken to the hospital.
Motorcycle safety is paramount. To help prevent any accidents and to decrease the severity of injuries if you are involved in an accident, be sure to always wear a helmet while riding your motorcycle, wear protective clothing, and always follow all of the posted speed limits. After an accident you should hire a motorcycle accident attorney for these five important reasons:
- Missing crucial deadlines can destroy your motorcycle injury case.
- Important evidence may be lost or destroyed.
- Signing medical authorization forms could damage your claim.
- Setting claims before consulting an attorney can be a major mistake.
- Motorcycle injury attorneys know how to protect your rights.
