What common hazards can lead to motorcycle accidents?

Maryland residents who choose to ride motorcycles typically understand that riding comes with a degree of danger. However, many do not recognize the specific situations that can pose a threat to personal safety and lead to motorcycle accidents. Practicing caution is never a bad idea, but developing a deeper understanding about some of the most common road hazards can provide an extra measure of safety.

Manufacturer responsibilities during a motorcycle-related recall

As with any type of product, motorcycles can sometimes be manufactured with defects that put the riders of certain models at risk. When a manufacturer discovers this fact, they are supposed to issue a warning and recall to consumers. In some cases, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will order manufacturers to issue a recall. Either way, when a recall is in effect, manufactures have some specific responsibilities.

What are some important motorcycle safety gear options?

When you think about personal motorcycle safety, you probably jump immediately to helmets, and for good reason. Helmets have been shown to decrease the rate of fatalities in motorcycle accidents, and they provide protection against brain injury, which can make a minor incident a severe one. We agree, helmets might be the most important piece of personal safety gear a motorcyclist can wear.

May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month

As spring is in full bloom across Maryland and the United States, more people are taking their motorcycles out on the open road. It only makes sense that Governor Larry Hogan and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have declared that May to be Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.

Do you know how to choose the right motorcycle helmet?

If you spend any time on a motorcycle, it is important to understand the best ways to protect yourself. This means wearing a helmet at all times. Choosing a motorcycle helmet is easier said than done. The reason for this is simple: One is not necessarily as good as the next.

Motorcycle accident cases can involved complex issues

People who ride motorcycles are often thought of as tough men who are rebels. That isn't usually the case. The vast majority of bikers are people who obey the law and just enjoy being on the open road. The preconceived thoughts about bikers can make it seem like an uphill battle for bikers who are injured in an accident that was caused by another vehicle.

Subdural hematomas after a motorcycle accident can lead to death

When you fall off of a motorcycle after being struck by a car, there is a pretty good chance that you are going to hit your head on the ground or on your motorcycle. A bump on the head, even if you have on a helmet and even if the bump is seemingly minor, can lead to a brain injury known as a subdural hematoma.
