What's the best way to protect yourself on a motorcycle?

Many motorcycle accidents on the road between passenger vehicles and motorcycles are the fault of the driver of the passenger vehicle. Even though it can be easy to show fault, knowing who was responsible won't heal injuries. There are some things motorcyclists do that can help prevent injuries. Helmets are one of those helpful tools that can prevent a collision from resulting in a fatality in some cases.

If a driver fails to see them, the impact against the human body can be devastating, resulting in broken bones and head injuries, pain and potentially death. Motorcyclists have the same rights as anyone else on the roads, but a variety of factors can make them harder to see or judge the speed of, putting them at risk.

For which events and motorcycle accidents can you file claims?

When you're in a motorcycle accident, you might have questions about your liability in the situation. There are a few times when the person at fault is generally obvious, like if a car turns left in front of you or a drunk driver was in the wrong lane. In other cases, you may think that if you weren't wearing a helmet or were disobeying a minor law you could be unable to make a claim.

New Hampshire motorcyclists, statistics and laws

While New Hampshire itself manages to survive winter storms and chilly weather during the year, motorcyclists still head out on the roads despite these conditions. Motorcycle crashes are often fatal due to the drivers and passengers having few protections against impact. In the winter, a passenger vehicle that sideswipes a motorcyclist could throw them onto ice and snow, causing broken bones and other injuries simply due to being unable to control his vehicle. This is part of why it's so important that drivers are careful in adverse weather conditions and any time they're driving.
