Protect Yourself from Motorcycle Accidents Roswell, GA
motorcycle accident

Motorcycles are usually equated with freedom. There is something special about the feeling of riding in the open air. But with that freedom comes increased dangers on the roadways. Here are some ways to protect yourself while riding your motorcycle.

Motorcycle Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were 4,985 motorcycle riders killed nationwide in 2018, the last reporting year. Motorcycle riders are 29 times more likely to suffer a fatal injury than car riders, making up 14% of yearly traffic deaths while only accounting for 3% of registered vehicles. Nearly two-thirds of single-vehicle motorcycle crashes are caused by rider error.

How to Protect Yourself

Motorcycles are sometimes difficult to see on the roadways, so it is important to make yourself more visible. Wear reflective safety gear and use your headlights. Avoid driving in bad weather and watch your speed. Always avoid alcohol use while operating any type of motor vehicle. Head trauma is a major factor in motorcycle crashes, so always wear a helmet and protective gear.

Since you are driving a small vehicle, you may be tempted to skirt around traffic laws, but this is a recipe for disaster. As a matter of fact, due to the nature of your vehicle, it is important to follow traffic laws even closer. The most important thing to remember is to always be observant. Since you are at a size disadvantage, by keeping your attention focused on the road and other drivers, you may be able to avoid a collision.

Motorcycles are fun ways to get around, and if you follow these safety tips you can enjoy riding for years to come. If you have been the victim of a motorcycle accident that was due to the carelessness of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
