If You Just Bought A New Motorcycle, Beware!

Did you know that most accidents happen within the first 5 months of owning a new bike, irrespective of how long someone’s been riding? Inexperience is a factor too, but not always in the case of a new motorcycle. It takes some getting used to a new bike.

Typically, as the rider is getting to know the new bike the driver is distracted by differences in equipment or ride. Since the attention is misdirected it is easy to be lax about watching out for other drivers on the road. Riding in heavy traffic is never a good time to be distracted.

Typically, most injuries happen near the bikers’ own residence and at intersections they have driven through many times before. A quick scenario would be a vehicle makes a left turn at an intersection, which forces the motorcyclist to crash into the side of a vehicle head-on, launching the rider into the air and severely injuring the rider. Drivers often turn in front of motorcycles at intersections either because they don’t see them or they are not paying attention.

The motorcyclist may suffer numerous injuries to the body such as broken bones, head injuries or even injuries severe enough to result in the loss of life. This is no time to try to determine who is legally responsible for the accident on your own. Get help!
