Motorcycle Safety Gear
Many people enjoy the thrill of riding motorcycles—the wind in your face, the smell of fresh air, and even the great maneuverability and high gas mileage. However, since you are more exposed to the different elements, you are also less protected in case of an accident.
While there is some safety gear that you can wear to help protect yourself, sometimes other people’s negligence can cause you to have devastating motorcycle wrecks. If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else’s reckless behavior, contact a Wisconsin personal injury attorney from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at 800-242-2874 to discuss your case.
Types of Motorcycle Crash Injuries
Because most motorcycle accidents happen at high rates of speed, there are several different types of severe injuries that you can suffer, as well as the possibility of death. Some common motorcycle crash injuries include:
- Head trauma
- Skin abrasions and lacerations
- Broken bones
- Spine/cervical vertebra damage
- Foot/ankle wounds
- Groin problems
Protective Motorcyclist Gear
To help prevent these injuries, there are several types of protective gear that you can utilize. While only education and experienced about proper motorcycling techniques can help you drive safely, things that you can wear to help deter injuries include:
- Department of Transportation-approved helmets
- Thick boots
- Leather or other tough material pants and long-sleeved jacket
- Protective eye gear
- Reflective vest to catch other drivers’ attention
Even if you wear protective gear and have training in riding motorcycles, chances are that someone else’s negligence can cause you to crash. In fact, about 75% of all motorcycle wrecks involve other cars.
