Motorcyclists have very little protection in an accident, regardless of the quality of their helmet, jacket, and other protective gear. Drivers of cars, trucks, and vans are enclosed their vehicle and have the added protection of seat belts and air bags, while motorcyclists have none of these. As a result, most motorcyclists suffer catastrophic injuries in an accident, including:
In the state of Alaska, it is legally required that all motorcycle riders under the age of 18 are required to wear a motorcycle helmet. Riders over the age of 18 are not required to wear a helmet as long as they have a motorcycle license. In case of an accident, it's always the best choice to wear a helmet while operating a motorcycle.
Many motorcycle accidents are caused by reckless motorcyclists who travel between lanes, negligently ride in a vehicle's blind spot, speed, and more. A large number of cases are also caused by other negligent motorists, however, who change lanes, merge, and turn corners without taking adequate measures to check for motorcyclists who are sharing the road.
Even when a motorcyclist is passing through a driver's blind spot, the driver can see the motorcyclist by turning their head to look. If you are a motorcyclist who has been seriously injured in an accident caused by a negligent motorist, speak with an Alaska personal injury lawyer right away.
