Motorcycle accidents

Motorcycles can be a lot of fun to drive when proper safety precautions are taken. However, it is still important for motorcyclists in West Virginia to be aware of the most common bike accidents and how best to prevent them.

Safety gear is an important part of driving safely and preventing injuries if a crash occurs. Drivers who wear safety gear will also find that they are more comfortable when riding and better able to control their bikes. By wearing riding jackets with highly noticeable, bright colors, motorcyclists will be more visible to other drivers. This makes a safer atmosphere for everyone on the road.

The most common type of motorcycle accident occurs when a vehicle turns left at an intersection in front of the motorcycle. This is usually due to the driver misjudging the speed of the motorcycle or failing to notice anything that isn't a car. Motorcyclists can avoid these types of accidents by being extra vigilant and anticipating when a vehicle may turn.

Another common accident occurs when a motorcyclist turns a corner blindly and runs into a patch of gravel, sand or some other item that causes a loss of control. This can be avoided by riding at a speed that will allow one enough time to safely react to what they see. When taking a corner, motorcyclists should turn wide at a steady pace in order to increase their range of vision.

A personal injury attorney may provide legal guidance to the victim of a motorcycle accident. For example, a lawsuit may be filed against the at-fault motorist for driving negligently due to impairment or drowsiness.
