A helmet and some heavy leather clothes is the best you can get. One little bump from a car, a truck, a pothole, anything can send you flying and from there you’re in big trouble.
Motorcyclists are very exposed and vulnerable and usually motorcycle accidents are very serious. Brain trauma, spinal cord damage, broken bones, deep lacerations, road rash and many other severe injuries happen regularly in motorcycle crashes. These injuries often involve multiple surgeries, long rehabilitation and lengthy hospital stays. Medical treatment is very expensive and while you’re recovering from an accident, you’re probably not going to be able to work to make the money to pay for treatment.
Motorcyclists are stereotyped as reckless and for speeding, but accidents are still usually the other drivers’ fault. Given the motorcycle’s bad reputation, accident victims riding a motorcycle often have a hard time defending themselves.
When it comes to motorcycles, even the smallest mistake can be fatal. Some common mistakes that automobile drivers make to endanger motorcycles are:
- Failure to Check Mirrors While Changing Lanes
- Failure to Stop Fully at Intersections
- Using their cell phone or text messaging and not paying attention to the roadway
- Failure to Look Before Opening a Car Door into the Roadway From a Parking Spot
