Charles Scholle has had years of experience dealing with motorcycle accident cases in the Walton County and surrounding areas. As a personal injury lawyer, he is there to help when an accident happens, but he also strongly believes in taking precautions to prevent accidents whenever possible. With motorcycle accident numbers at an all time high, practicing safety and awareness for motorcycle riders is as important as ever. There are many different strategies that motorcyclists can practice to protect themselves. Motorcycle drivers should make their passengers sit behind them on the vehicle. They should inform their passengers of the dangers of riding a motorcycle and advise them of techniques to ensure safety. These include keeping feet on the footrests, leaning into the driver on turns, holding the waist of the driver for stability, avoiding distracting behavior, and keeping away from the heated part of the vehicle.
Most motorcycle accidents result in injuries that are far worse than injuries resulting from other types of motor vehicle accidents. This is partly due to the small size of the motorcycle when compared to other vehicles. When impact is made, the motorcycle also does not have nearly as much protection as a car would. Because of this, victims can suffer serious injuries that are not only painful, but could also have consequences months beyond the day of the accident. Traumatic brain injury, for example, can produce months of medical bills and treatments. Additionally, head injury is actually the leading cause of death in motorcycle accidents, and the financial and emotional burdens associated with a wrongful death are massive.
