The 3 Most Important Things Every Motorcyclist Should Know To Avoid an Accident

Riding a motorcycle can be very dangerous. The lack of safety features can lead to serious injuries in the event of an accident. Given the prevalence of motorcycle accidents Motorbike Accident On The City Streetand the almost certainty of motorcyclists sustaining injuries in such accidents, it is important that riders follow every possible safety guideline to avoid or at least reduce the likelihood of getting into an accident. This article discusses the three important things every motorcyclist should know to avoid an accident.

1. Safety Gear Can Save Lives

Safety gear, such as helmets and thick leather jackets, is especially important for motorcyclists to use because of the lack of impact protections on a bike. Unlike motor vehicles, which have seatbelts and airbags, motorcycles do not provide any support in the event of an accident. As such, riders need to protect themselves with as much safety gear as possible.

2. How You Ride Matters

Under-trained riders are the most common factor in the cause of motorcycle collisions. It goes without saying that one of the most important things a motorcyclist needs to do to stay safe and to avoid accidents is to learn how to ride properly. Moreover, even experienced motorcyclists can benefit from taking riding education classes. The more knowledge you have about how to safely ride a motorcycle, the more likely it is that you will avoid getting into an accident.

3. Don’t Assume Motorists See You

Motorcycles are a lot smaller in size as compared to other motor vehicles on the road. This smaller size makes it harder for the bigger vehicles to see motorcycles. In fact, one of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents is because the motorcyclist was in the motorist’s blind spot. As such, motorcyclists should not assume that it can easily be seen by a motorist.

Client Testimonials

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!!
