Motorcycle accidents can result in more serious accidents than those involved in typical car accidents, due to the fact that motorcycle riders are not enclosed on all four sides. Injuries can include head and brain trauma, broken bones, internal bleeding, paralysis, and death, which is why it’s important that riders always seek medical attention after an accident.
However, motorcycle accidents are also preventable, as they’re often the result of human error. In 2013, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 51% of fatal motorcycle accidents involved another motor vehicle. It’s relatively easy for other drivers to not see motorcyclists, or for motorcyclists to put themselves in harm’s way.
Here are some tips to keep in mind if you’re a motorcyclist who wants to stay safe on the road:
