Seven Motorcycle Safety Tips to Keep You Protected on the Roads

If you recently experienced property damage or injuries in a motorcycle accident caused by another motorist, you should consult a motorcycle accident lawyer. A motorcycle accident can result in massive medical expenditures, lost wages, and other consequences. Following these motorcycle safety tips will help keep you safe.

Florida's accident laws ensure that victims of unjust conduct on the road can seek compensation for both physical and mental harm. The damages can include compensation for out-of-pocket expenses, such as medical bills and lost earnings, and also "non-economic" damages, such as emotional distress and pain and suffering. 

Not all cases are similar. This is why personal injury lawyers thoroughly investigate the accident to build the most compelling case possible and then present it to the insurance company or even a jury in some cases.

If you or someone you know has been hurt in a motorcycle wreck as a result of a driver’s negligence, recklessness, or deliberate malicious act, you should contact a knowledgeable Florida car accident lawyer

Seven Motorcycle Safety Tips

Here are some motorcycle safety tips to ensure that your riding experiences are incident-free in order to keep you safe on the road:

Always Wear Safety Gear

You may find yourself asking, "Do I have to wear this gear all the time?" There are a few fundamental rules that must be followed at particular times. For instance, during the winter, the appropriate wear includes ankle-protecting boots, an armored abrasion-resistant jacket, long pants or jeans, a helmet, and gloves. Wearing motorcycle pants with armor and moto boots will provide you with additional protection.

Assuming it is summer, invest in a vented white helmet as well as light-colored or white clothing and footwear. Just because you've never suffered a heat injury from extreme weather before doesn't rule out the possibility of doing so in the future. 

Evaluate the Weather and Know Your Limits

You must plan ahead of time in order to ensure your safety. It takes time to plan a safe ride, and cautious motorcyclists frequently make concessions in order to be safe. This can include checking the forecast each day and mapping out your path. It is possible for rain and snow to arrive fast, and you can make safe decisions when you expect such conditions.

Ride in Open Areas

Make use of your bike's power and maneuverability to ride in open areas while driving in heavy traffic. There are always some gaps in any collection of vehicles; look for them and take advantage of such spaces. This will allow you to maintain a safe distance between you and larger vehicles, as well as give you more maneuvering space. Moreover, it will keep you out of potentially dangerous blind spots. As you drive, make sure that you vary your speed. When you ride with the flow, you can become invisible to other drivers, which is especially true in heavy traffic.

Always Wear a Helmet

Wear a full-face helmet with a face shield (or eye protection) to protect your face. Even at modest speeds, it is not unusual for an accident to occur. Not wearing a helmet increases your chances of being injured badly. If you come upon a dusty area, your helmet can also come in handy in protecting your eyes.

Pre-Ride Check

This is sometimes overlooked, but you should endeavor to do it every time. You should do an inspection before you get on the bike. It takes approximately 3 minutes. Check the lights (including the brake lights and turn signals), tire pressure, and fluid levels before driving. If you follow these steps, you will considerably lessen the likelihood of encountering an unexpected problem.

Keep Your Brakes Covered

Oftentimes in traffic, you must react quite rapidly, which means you must not fumble with the brake lever or the gas pedal. Make sure your right toe is close to the rear brake pedal and your right finger or two on the brake lever at all times in order to reduce the reach and reaction time. This ensures that you are prepared when a vehicle tries to cut you off, swerves, or cuts across lanes abruptly to exit the freeway.

Concentrate on the Road at All Times

One of the most dangerous things a motorist can do is get on their bike while their mind is unstable. This includes riding while enraged, tired, or preoccupied.  Keep in mind that when you're riding a motorcycle, you're often the only person on the road who is watching out for you. In other words, if your thoughts and emotions are elsewhere other than on the road ahead, you are more likely to make mistakes that might result in a crash, injuries, or worse outcomes.
