How to Avoid Motorcycle Accidents

You can take measures to avoid being in a Colorado motorcycle accident. By following as many of the steps below as you can, you will not only reduce the odds of being in a crash but also decrease your liability and help you maximize your compensation opportunities if you are involved in a motorcycle accident.

Important steps to follow when riding include:

  • Get licensed. All states currently require a separate motorcycle license to operate this type of motor vehicle on the road.
  • Take a motorcycle riders' course. This course can provide valuable safety instruction. To locate a class near you, call 1-800-446-9227.
  • Never drink alcohol before or while operating a motorcycle.
  • Wear a helmet (preferably with a built-in visor or other face guards for added visibility and safety measures). Wearing a helmet is your best defense against serious and fatal brain injuries if a motorcycle crash does occur. In addition to your helmet, wear long pants, gloves, boots, and a durable long-sleeved jacket. This can help prevent road rash in the event of being involved in an accident.
  • Make sure your headlight is on every time you ride. This is a law in most states.
  • Follow all the rules of the road: Do not speed, swerve between cars, or take other unnecessary risks. Keep an eye out for vehicles coming from driveways and side streets.
  • Watch for hazards on the road such as large cracks, holes, and bumps. Dangerous conditions caused by weather or construction can also present bigger risks for motorcyclists than people in other automobiles.
  • Do not let anyone ride with you until you are skilled at riding in all kinds of conditions.

National Crash Resources

The National Crash Analysis Center Library is the most comprehensive source of crash test data and vehicle safety reports in the nation, including motorcycle charts and information collected and distributed by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).

Our attorneys may use information from these sources to help build a strong personal injury case involving a motorcycle accident:

  • Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS): Contains traffic crash data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico
  • National Automotive Sampling System (NASS): Provides nationally representative data on vehicle crashes for understanding the vehicle-trauma experience and to determine national crash trends.
