Motorcycle Safety Tips

Every motorist is responsible for making our roads safer.

  • If you see a motorcycle with a signal on, be careful. Motorcycle signals are often triggered and then forgotten. Always ensure that the motorcycle is turning before proceeding.
  • Another rule of thumb is to allow three to four more seconds of following distance — when behind a motorcycle. This gives them more time to maneuver or stop in an emergency.
  • Motorcyclists should always wear protective riding gear and a helmet to stay safe. A study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration concluded that leg injuries are the most common form of injuries for motorcyclists.

Filing a Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 30 times more likely than car occupants to die in a crash — and five times more likely to be injured.

If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle crash due to the negligence of another, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Contact one of our motorcycle accident lawyers to learn about the legal rights available to you.
