Road Rash: Treating Your Skin Abrasions

How Does Road Rash Occur?

Motorcycles are an enjoyable way to get from one place to another. Many people who ride these vehicles find enjoyment in the openness of the road, the freeing feeling of the wind on their face, and the seemingly endless possibilities that a motorcycle allows for a rider to choose. For these reasons and many others, motorcyclists will tell you that a motorcycle is the best way to drive, and it's something many riders will recommend for others to try.

When Cars Don't See Motorcycles

Motorcycle Accidents in America

In 2017, over 5,000 motorcyclists died due to accidents. This number is staggering, and it's one that we hope will decline in the coming years. Motorcyclists will get into accidents due to their own driving or due to the motorcycle itself, but often, motorcycle accidents occur because other drivers are not paying attention to the motorcyclists that share the road with them. When a car hits or causes an accident with a motorcycle, it can mean a variety of terrible outcomes, including injury and death, that can cost the motorcyclist many issues for the near future. When a motorcycle is involved in an accident due to a vehicle, the cyclist has a right to talk with a lawyer to see what they may be owed and to see what the law can do to help them recover.

The Injuries That Occur in Motorcycle Accidents

Statistics of Motorcycle Accidents

With the rise of gas prices, the rise in population in major cities, and the convenience of they're small size, it's no wonder why motorcycles are becoming an increasingly popular vehicle to buy and use amongst young and single riding drivers. They are easy to park, fairly easy to ride depending on the make and model of the bike, and they are a money saver on gas for many drivers. With all of these advantages, it's a wonder why more people who are able to don't drive these vehicles, seeing as they seem to make the most sense in this economy.

What is Lane Splitting?

Everyone who has ever ridden in a car has experienced the frustrating and unfortunate encounter of traffic. For some cities, traffic lasts for half an hour and then the roads are clear again. In other cities, traffic can last for hours, causing those on the roads who are stuck in these situations to be frustrated and impatient. No matter who you are, traffic is a nightmare, and it's one problem people wish to avoid as much as possible.

Making Motorcycles Safer for Their Riders

Statistics involving Motorcycle Accidents

In the year 2015, motorcycle deaths accounted for 29 times that of vehicle deaths. These numbers are mainly due to the one major issue motorcycles lack over vehicles: safety features. Unlike vehicles, motorcycles do little to nothing to protect their driver when an accident occurs, which means that they are more vulnerable to injuries that can result in death.
