Spring is almost here, which more motorcycles on the road

Although this winter, by all accounts has been relatively mild for us folks up here in the Somerville, New Jersey, area, I suspect many of us are looking forward to the change of seasons. Phil the groundhog did see his shadow this year in the beginning of February, meaning 6 more weeks of winter, but we are almost already into mid-March and the Old Father Winter has given us a few glimpses of spring.

With the warmer weather and longer brighter days, also comes an increase in outdoor activities for many people, including motorcycle riders. If you do not ride, but still drive a car, it is important to be mindful that there will be more motorcyclists on the roads. And if you do ride, also be mindful that most drivers in cars likely haven't seen motorcycles on the roads for months, and may not be on the lookout for them.

Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable when it comes to accidents, as they do not have many of the safety features available in cars. There are no seatbelts, no airbags, and no shell of metal to surround and protect a motorcyclist. Furthermore, motorcycles are more difficult to see due to their smaller size and shape.

Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents leave victims with permanent injuries such as brain, spine or neck injuries and in more severe cases, even death. It is important for those who have been affected by motorcycle accidents to consult an experienced attorney. With assistance, damages such as medical bills may be able to be compensated.
