Motorcycles are becoming more and more popular all over the country, mainly due to the fact that they get good gas mileage at a time when gas prices are steep. Because of this increase in motorcycles on the road, there has also been an increase in motorcycle accident injuries.
The number of fatalities involving motorcycles and scooters are at an all-time high. Motorcycles and scooters offer less physical protection than cars, vans and SUV’s. They also can be difficult for cars and vans to see, especially when they are in the blind spot of other vehicles.
Easy Solutions to Motorcycle Injuries
At the Segal Law Firm, we understand that motorcycles can be convenient in this time of high gas prices. But we also promote proper motorcycle safety that can help you prevent injuries. Some simple safety precautions you can take are:
- Wear a helmet. Fatalities are reduced when riders wear helmets.
- Wear jackets, boots and gloves as additional protection.
- Watch for “no zones” or blind spots of cars, vans, SUV’s and trucks.
- Drive defensively.
- Drive with caution.
- Do not ride between lanes or share a lane with another vehicle.
