3 Safety Tips to Avoid the Most Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents in Indianapolis

Helmeted Motorcycle RiderMotorcycle accidents in Indianapolis are responsible for hundreds of injuries each year. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a motorcyclist is 37 times more likely to be killed in an accident than a motorist and 9 times more likely to be injured than those in cars. If you’ve been injured, contact an Indianapolis accident attorney.

Follow these safety recommendations to avoid accidents on the road:

  • Don’t try to pass or overtake a vehicle when approaching any curves, intersections, rises or dips in the road, pedestrian crossings, or anywhere that double-lines prohibit passing.
  • Leave lots of space between you and the vehicle in front of you – if you don’t have enough room to come to a complete stop in the distance available, you are following too closely.
  • Obey posted speed limits and adjust your speed and driving distance in adverse weather conditions when visibility or road conditions may pose a greater risk.

You can help manage your risks on the road by following these safety recommendations. If you are injured in a motorcycle accident because of another driver’s failure to adhere to the rules of the road, contact an Indianapolis accident attorney. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, and a lawyer can help you prove your case if someone else was at fault.
