As Bradenton locals, we know that Florida is the perfect environment for riding motorcycles. It’s important, however, that riders understand the Florida laws for safe motorcycle operation.
If you want to avoid an accident, keep these suggestions in mind:
Make Yourself Visible to Other Motorists
By utilizing items such as brightly colored gear, reflective tape, and auxiliary lights, you’ll increase your chances of being seen by other drivers on the road.
Stay Out of Blind Spots
It’s impossible to avoid blind spots all together but try to keep out of them whenever possible. If you position your bike in a place where you’re not easily seen, your chances of getting hit increase significantly.
Always Wear an Approved Helmet
While you can legally ride a motorcycle without a helmet if you’re over the age of 21 and have at least $10,000 worth of medical insurance coverage, deciding to do so could be harmful.
Head injuries are among the most serious and, unfortunately, the most common sustained by motorcyclists. Choosing to wear a Department of Transportation-approved helmet is one of the safest decisions you can make as a motorcycle operator.
If an accident does occur, hiring a qualified Bradenton-Sarasota personal injury attorney is one of the best decisions you can make.
Florida insurance regulations often complicate the process of an injured motorcyclist recovering compensation following an accident. Well-trained adjusters work tirelessly to make sure you are paid as little as possible. This type of situation is especially true when the injured party attempts to negotiate without the assistance of a personal injury lawyer experienced in handling motorcycle accident claims.
