How to Reduce the Severity of Injuries During a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle Accident AttorneyRiding a motorcycle can be a thrilling experience. However, it is not an experience without dangerous risks. The smaller size of a motorcycle and its lack of protection create many potential dangers for its rider. While it may be impossible to totally avoid getting into a motorcycle accident, you can reduce the severity of injuries by using five important pieces of safety gear.

– Helmet: One of the most important pieces of safety gear you should wear while riding a motorcycle is a properly fitted helmet that meets industry safety standards. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), you can reduce the risk of death in a motorcycle accident by more than 37 percent by wearing a properly fitted helmet.

– Neck collar:Neck collars can also provide extensive protection and significantly reduce the risk of a severe or devastating injury to the collarbone.

Leather jacket: Wearing a leather jacket is not only a fashion statement, but can also provide serious protection to the most sensitive parts of your body in the event of a motorcycle.

Riding boots: Two of the most common parts of the body that often make the first contact with the ground during a motorcycle accident are the feet and ankles. Injury to this part of the body may take weeks or even months to heal. The best protection for your ankles and feet are riding boots.

Gloves: The skin on the hands is delicate and can easily be damaged, especially during serious motorcycle accidents. To protect your hands from severe injuries, such as road abrasion, you should always wear thick protective gloves when riding a motorcycle.

While wearing protective gear may reduce the severity of motorcycle accident injuries, it will not deter you from getting injured. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another party, you may be entitled to monetary compensation.
