Motorcycle Accident Lawyers - Akron, Ohio
The feel of the wind blowing through your hair, the smell of the great outdoors, and the blur of cars in the distance that you zoomed by. Sounds invigorating, doesn’t it? But the thrill of riding a motorcycle can come at a dear cost if caution is blown to the wind. According to the Motorcycle Injury Lawyers at the Eshelman Legal Group in Akron, Ohio, motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to experience an accident than those driving cars.
But that does not need to be the case. While most motorcycle accidents are caused by speeding and passing in the right lane, these two factors can be managed with safe driving habits like using your turn signals, not sharing a lane with a vehicle, and just being mindful that cars may not see you. Accidents do still happen, however, and while you may break a few bones, the best way to protect yourself from serious injury or death, is to make sure you are always wearing a helmet.
While the Motorcycle Accident Lawyers at the Eshelman Legal Group understand the joy of the wind blowing through your hair, they have helped many clients who would have recovered quicker (and with less pain) if they had worn a helmet (and had a little less hair blowing). Ohio law states that motorcycle operators under the age of 18 and those holding a novice license, must wear a helmet. That said, every motorcyclists, regardless of their age or experience, could benefit from always wearing a properly fitted helmet and a helmet that is highly rated for safety.
The Akron, Ohio area has seen many accidents lately involving motorcycles. This spike is partly due to the fact that as a growing area, there are more vehicles on the road, therefore more irresponsible drivers too. So no matter how vigilant you are, an accident could occur. If you are injured on a motorcycle due to someone else's negligence, what are some of the first things you should you do to help your case?
Here are a few suggestions from the Eshelman Legal Group:
- If you need to go to the hospital, by all means, do that first...get X Rays, MRI s, whatever you need done.
- If you are capable, you should take photos of the accident scene, road conditions, your bike, parts left laying around, etc. to help your motorcycle injury lawyer recover your financial reward. If you are not able to do this, please have your guardian, friend or whomever take them for you so the evidence is preserved.
