Pensacola Motorcycle Riders Face Serious Accident Injuries

Many factors come together to make inner city and highway motorcycle crashes particularly damaging. Of course, riders are exposed and vulnerable to an impact with another vehicle, the roadway, or a stationary object, with little to protect them besides the bike they are on and perhaps a helmet and some leathers. But there are other factors as well.

  • Bikers may have limited visibility

  • Motorbikes are harder to see from a car, truck, or SUV window

  • The speed and maneuverability of a bike means they often travel faster than the traffic around them and make lane changes more frequently

  • Limits to the bike’s safe handling and stability which other drivers may not understand

  • The lack of attention paid to motorcyclists by other drivers on the road

  • Some drivers do not respect motorcyclists and they drive recklessly or aggressively around the bike

Our Pensacola Motorcycle Accident Lawyers’ Tips for Motorcycle Safety

Many people who do not ride motorcycles have a bias against them and tend to think that motorcyclists ride aggressively or recklessly. This attitude can be disastrous to you in a case involving motorcycle accidents. In Florida, your chance at obtaining full compensation for your injuries can be lower if you are at-fault.

Following these common-sense tips can help reduce your fault for any accident that may happen:

  • Watch out for other drivers on the road and ride defensively

  • Adjust your riding according to the current traffic, weather, and road conditions

  • Obey all applicable Pensacola traffic laws

  • Keep your bike maintained in good condition

  • Ride with your headlights on at all times

  • Ride in the center of your lane

  • Signal turns and lane changes

  • Dress for safety and visibility

  • Maintain a safe distance between you and the cars in front of you
