Motorcycle Safety Awareness

motorcycleIn just a few days, Panama City will host the 18th annual Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally. This means that countless individuals will take to the streets on their motorcycles. While this can always be an enjoyable experience for riders and visitors alike, our Panama City motorcycle accident lawyer encourages everyone attending to take the proper precautions to remain safe. Our team at The Pittman Firm, P.A. has seen the catastrophic results of a motorcycle accident first hand. We know what kind of injuries can be sustained, so we offer tips to help individuals protect themselves.

Always Wear a Helmet

No matter the circumstances, a motorcyclist should wear a helmet at all times. If the rider gets into an accident and falls or gets launched off of the motorcycle, the only thing to protect their head is a helmet. This could protect you from serious and even life-threatening damage.

Pay Close Attention to Your Surroundings

More motorcycles could mean more cause for concern on the road. Because you cannot predict what the other riders will do, you must look closely to make sure you are not putting yourself in danger. Watch for riders coming from your sides or getting too close to stay with a group.

Avoid Drinking and Riding

Along the path of Thunder Road, there are a number of different venues available to motorcyclists. If you plan on riding after visiting the venue, avoid drinking and driving. This can cause a serious accident and result in catastrophic injuries.

Watch Out for Other Drivers

Not everyone attending Thunder Beach is going to be riding a motorcycle. There are plenty of visitors who simply want to enjoy the festivities. These are people who may be driving a car and who you will have to watch out for as you go riding. A large majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by negligent drivers who fail to pay attention to motorcyclists or those who drive recklessly.

At The Pittman Firm, P.A., we want to make sure you enjoy Thunder Beach responsibly. Ride carefully and make sure you take all precautions to keep yourself and those around you safe. If you are harmed as a result of someone else’s negligence, our firm is here to help. We can help you seek the compensation you deserve to hold the negligent driver accountable for his or her actions. Call today.
