Motorcyclists More Likely to Experience Deadly Crash Than Motorists

For many bikers, a bright, sunny day is only complete if you can squeeze in a ride. However, a beautiful day can quickly come crashing down if the driver does not take proper precautions. While you can’t prevent all motorcycle accidents in McKinney, you can do your best to ride safely and drive defensively. At Lucé Law, PC, we have seen first-hand how dangerous reckless drivers can be around motorcyclists.

Play it Safe

Motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to have a deadly crash than those driving a car, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). One leading cause may be a lack of proper instruction. The NHTSA also notes that 92 percent of cyclists involved in crashes did not have professional training. It is important to take lessons to learn not only how to operate the motorcycle but also how to share the road with bigger vehicles.

Many of these motorcycle accidents are not the rider’s fault. In fact, motorcyclists injured from a crash may be entitled to damages to cover medical expenses from the responsible party. To prevent being hit by a car or other vehicle, safety officials recommend keeping your headlights on to make yourself more visible. Also, wear a helmet at all times and be aware of the vehicles around you.
