Fort Lauderdale accident attorney David I. Fuchs has more than 20 years of experience in South Florida successfully representing motorcycle accident victims and their families and friends who have suffered a death in the family or sustained serious bodily injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical bills because of the negligence of the driver of another motor vehicle.
Every year, more than 70,000 motorcyclists are injured. These accidents typically occur due to reckless driving, negligence, and speeding. Many times, a motor vehicle driver will check for cars and switch lanes; but, unfortunately, a speeding motorcyclist can move into the lane rapidly, unseen by that driver. This, paired with a lack of physical protection, makes motorcyclists inherently susceptible to serious injury or even permanent disability.
Below are several safety tips proved to reduce the likelihood of being injured in a motorcycle accident.
So other drivers can easily see you, keep headlights turned on and wear the proper protective and reflective gear and apparel. Nothing is more dangerous than being invisible to other drivers sharing the road.
Take riding classes. Learning the proper way to ride, bike safety rules, and bike maintenance results in being a more educated rider. This experience can mean the difference between riding recklessly and avoiding the collision.
Time and time again, riders hear others preach about helmet use. The statistics are clear—wearing a helmet is a critical factor in bike safety and a helmet is often the only thing between a rider’s head and the concrete in the event of a motorcycle accident. Helmets also provide a visor to keeps out wind, rain, bugs, and grit, all factors that can make riding more difficult. An appropriate jacket, leg and arm gear, and gloves also are beneficial.
Although these tips will help aid motorcyclists in avoiding an incident, accidents may still occur.
