The Gurnee motorcycle accident attorneys in our office hope that you never have to experience the painful aftermath of serious motorcycle accident.
That is why we have compiled a list of Top Tips for Avoiding Motorcycle Accident Injuries.
Wear a helmet. We understand that during the summer months, motorcycle helmets can be hot and sweaty. But finding a helmet with well-placed air vents will not only allow your head to stay cool, it will also protect your brain the in event of an accident.
Take extra caution when riding in a group. Organized rides are a great way to hang out with your buddies or raise money for a good cause. But the congestion of a large group of riders also increases your risk for an accident. Make sure to keep your distance from other bikes, and stick with riders of your same skill level.
Steer clear of cars if possible. Tacking on an additional 15 minutes of travel time in order to take a back road wither less traffic could be worth it.
Don’t forgo protective gear. Once again, we understand that gear can make you warm, especially in the summer, but a little extra warmth is a lot less painful than road rash.
Make sure your bike is in working order. Performing regular maintenance and upkeep to your motorcycle can help prevent malfunction on the road.
Do yourself a favor and always take the extra time to make good decisions when riding, to ensure that you’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come. But if you have been injured in a motorcycle due to the negligence of another person, you need information.
