The first steam powered motorcycle was invented in 1867. Since then, the motorcycle world has been through a whirlwind of change! These days, motorcycles are among one of the most mainstream ways to travel to and from everyday life activities.
Although motorcycles have a reputation for being fun and fast, there are several safety precautions to take when riding one. For example, in Texas alone, 52% of motorcyclists weren’t wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
While 14% of motorcyclists account nationally for traffic fatalities, only 2% of those can contribute weather as a contributing factor. It’s also important to take note that intersections are the most likely place for a motorcycle accident.
If you have been in a motorcycle crash, it’s important that you call an experienced attorney immediately. You may be able to receive a maximum compensation for injury.
