Motorcycle safety tips for novice riders in Pennsylvania

You've always wanted to own a motorcycle, but never pulled the trigger. Now, you find yourself the proud owner of a hog, but are a bit nervous about your first ride alone on the roads of the Lehigh Valley. You can prepare yourself for your inaugural ride by following some of the safety tips for novice riders outlined here.

Recoverable damages in motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle accidents can be some of the most horrific accidents on the roads of Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. Riders are not required to wear helmets by law in the state, which can make these accidents even more serious. Victims of motorcycle accidents and their family members, should the accident be fatal, can recover a host of different damages.

Common medical expenses incurred by motorcycle accidents

Motorcycles are fun to ride, especially during the warm weather months and with a group of friends. But, if safety is not a priority, they can become very dangerous.

Today we will discuss common medical expenses incurred by motorcycle accidents.

Fatal motorcycle accidents: Biker slams into car making U-turn

Motorcyclists in Pennsylvania and elsewhere are often at risk of injury simply due to their lack of protection. A significant percentage of motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers who fail to keep a proper lookout for bikes.

Motorcycle accidents can be fatal for riders without helmets

Motorcyclists in Pennsylvania who are older than 21 years of age and have at least two years of riding experience may ride without helmets. Also, those who have successfully completed approved motorcycle safety courses need not wear helmets while riding. However, not wearing helmets may lead to fatal injuries for riders who are involved in motorcycle accidents.

This is especially true when automobiles are involved. A Pennsylvania woman recently lost her life when her motorcycle was struck by a vehicle.
