Injuries Suffered from Motorcycle Accidents:
- Your visibility is key to avoiding accidents. Be as visible as possible to other drivers. By keeping your wearing reflective gear, headlights on during the daytime, and equipping your bike with a fairing or windshield, the chance that other drivers will see you will be greatly diminished.
- Receive adequate training. Statistically, motorcyclists who are well trained on how to ride and care for their bikes are less likely to be involved in motorcycle accidents than riders who forego training and teach themselves.
- Wear a helmet and proper riding gear. A motorcyclist’s best protection against a serious injury in a motorcycle accident will be their helmet. Helmets for motorcyclists are like seatbelts for drivers. Wearing a helmet is a simple way to reduce the likelihood that an accident you are involved in will be fatal. Also, wear eye protection, gloves, appropriate footwear, leg guards and jackets limit abrasions when accidents do occur.
