Injury Lawyer Todd Leonard Wants Motorcyclists to Stay Safe While Enjoying New Jersey this Fall

Todd J. Leonard, Esq.

Denville, NJ (law firm Newswire) October 26, 2022 – During the New Jersey fall, motorcyclists who take to the streets in large numbers must keep safety in mind. In fact, the fall months – including September, October and November – have some of the highest rates of motorcycle accidents. In fact, motorcycle accidents in New Jersey have been steadily increasing, especially during the fall months.

Reminding all riders of the dangers of riding in the fall, New Jersey personal injury attorney Todd Leonard is urging everyone – both motorcyclists and drivers – to take extra precautions this season to avoid a tragic accident to avoid.

Tips on how motorcyclists can stay safe

Motorcyclists must take extra precautions when riding in September and October as these months have historically seen an incredibly high number of motorcycle accidents. Some of the safety precautions motorcyclists should take when riding in the fall include:

1. Always wear a helmet.
2. Avoid driving on wet roads.
3. Watch out for gravel, road debris, uneven road surfaces or animals.
4. Dress appropriately for the weather.
5. Avoid lane splitting.
6. Leave enough space between the vehicle in front of the motorcycle.

Of course, from a motorcyclist’s point of view, some accidents are unavoidable. In these cases, injured drivers may consider filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person who caused the accident. If successful, a motorcycle injury lawsuit can provide injured riders with meaningful compensation to cover their accident-related costs, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Tips for car and truck drivers to avoid a motorcycle accident

There is no doubt that riders must do their part to prevent motorcycle accidents. The first thing riders should think about when riding this season is that they are likely to see more motorcyclists on the road. Motorists must note the following:

1. Watch out for motorcyclists.
2. Check blind spots.
3. Never close the rear of a motorcyclist.
4. Avoid alcohol and driving.
5. Provide extra space for the motorcyclist, especially in bad weather conditions.
6. Don’t share the web.
