July is Women’s Motorcycle Month. There are more than 4.3 million women motorcyclists on the road today, and more are hitting the road every day. Due to the increase in riders, both male and female, personal injury attorney Robert Lemle is raising awareness of motorcycle safety and precautions to take to avoid accidents.
“Motorcycle riders, despite their age or gender, are sixteen times more likely, per mile, to die than those in cars, with head and chest injuries being the leading cause of death in bike accidents,” said Lemle. “However, there are measures to prevent catastrophic injury, the easiest of which, of course, is to slow down and always wear a helmet, which is the most effective measure in preventing serious injury and death. Another measure is to take a motorcycle safety course.”
According to an article on examiner.com, female riders are involved in fewer accidents than male riders, attributing this to women’s greater propensity to seek continuing rider education. The article also reports that Nationwide Insurance showed that in 2011, thirty percent of its female insured motorcycle riders had completed a motorcycle safety course, as opposed to men who overwhelmingly indicated that they had taught themselves how to ride.
“Even though female motorcycle riders do not get in motorcycle accidents as much as men, they are still at risk,” said Lemle. “And despite the fact that motorcycle fatalities overall are down, there were still more than 4,500 fatalities in 2014.”
Lemle encourages those involved in motorcycle accidents to utilize the services of a personal injury law firm, such as those provided by the Lemle Law Group. The firm represents people who have suffered serious personal injuries and families who lost a loved one due to the carelessness or negligence of another, and stands up for people against insurance companies.
