According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), for every 100,000 registered motorcycles, over 70 will become involved in a motor vehicle accident. It has been found that those that when compared to passenger vehicles, motorcycles have a 35 times greater chance of getting into a wreck for every mile travelled. This is a serious statistic and demonstrates the danger that is associated with this type of vehicle. What most people, however, find surprising is that the motorcyclist is usually not the cause of the accident. In fact, most motorcyclists are well-aware of the dangers of the vehicle and take the proper precautionary methods to protect themselves.
It is usually the drivers of the passenger vehicles. Motorcyclists are trained to be on the alert for the larger vehicles on the road, but many drivers of passenger vehicles fail to lookout for smaller motorcycles. This can lead to negligent and reckless lane changes, which can endanger the motorcyclist. If you have recently been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is in your best interests to get the involvement of a personal injury attorney who will be able to help you fight for the maximum monetary compensation you require.
Tips for Motorcycle Safety:
– Wear protective clothing, such as long jeans and high boots;
– Always wear a helmet – even if not legally required;
– Get proper training with standardized curriculum; and
– Equip your bike with all necessary safety features.
