As a motorcyclist, you want to do what you can to stay safe on the road and enjoy riding. Thus, you are likely interested in motorcycle safety features—provided they work. Recently, the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) analyzed the effectiveness of antilock brakes in preventing motorcycle accidents. Find out more about antilock brakes, whether they may be right for you, and how to contact a Milwaukee motorcycle accident lawyer if you are hurt.
An Antilock Brake System (ABS) Can Help Protect Motorcyclists From Some Accidents
The HLDI found that ABS brakes are beneficial for all riders, but most particularly for those who are new to motorcycle riding or new to a particular bike. Specifically, motorcyclists who ride bikes equipped with ABS are 30 percent less likely to have a collision in the first 90 days of their insurance policy, and 19 percent less likely to have collisions after that.
ABS brakes work by preventing wheels from locking up. Wheels that lock may force a motorcyclist to fall, which can result in significant or deadly injuries.
Contact a Milwaukee Motorcycle Accident Attorney If You’ve Been Hurt
While ABS may decrease your likelihood of being in an accident, they will not eliminate the risk. Accordingly, it is important to contact an experienced Milwaukee motorcycle crash lawyer as soon as possible after an accident so that your lawyer can help you get the recovery that you deserve.
