Motorcycle accidents tend have trauma even at lower speeds because the operator is exposed to outside elements. For this reason, motorcyclists should always ride defensively and anticipate the movements of other drivers. Riding with properly fitted protective gear may reduce the severity of head injuries, road rash and even broken bones in the case of an unavoidable accident. If you are ever involved in a motorcycle collision, seek immediate medical attention to address your injuries. Following an accident, many victims must take time away from work to recover from injuries sustained in the accident. Always ride safely and wear protective gear.
