Common Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles are a lot of fun. Millions of riders take to the road daily to get to work, run errands or to just enjoy the freedom of the open road. With that many riders on the road comes the risk of motorcycle accidents.

Be Proactive to Avoid Motorcycle Accidents
To avoid motorcycle accidents, motorists and motorcyclists should share the road, each being aware of the other and by respecting all traffic laws. In addition to sharing the road respectfully and safely, motorcyclists should always ride sober, wear DOT-compliant helmets and make themselves visible. By being proactive, some motorcycle accidents and their resulting injuries can be avoided.
