It won't be too long until the temperatures begin to rise, leaving winter nothing more than memory. As the weather becomes milder, more motorcycles will be seen upon Texas roadways. In 2013, 460 motorcyclists lost their lives in Texas, according to the state's Department of Transportation. Here are some motorcycle safety tips that can help reduce that number this year. -- Safety equipment: Helmets are only required in Texas for those under the age of 21. However, helmets do save lives in the event of a motorcycle accident. Safety equipment also includes protective clothing, boots and gloves. -- Experience: Riding experience matters. New drivers should attend a motorcycle safety class in order to learn more before hitting the state's roads. -- Drive aware: Always be on the lookout for motorists who are not paying attention. Motorcycles are small and, therefore, often missed by other motorists. Be visible and avoid blind spots. -- Weather: Be aware of the weather and how quickly it can change. Showers can bring a layer of oil to the road's surface, making skids and slides even more likely. Remember these safety tips as you head out on the roads this year. Unfortunately, even the safest motorcyclist won't always be able to avoid an accident. At Levine Law Firm P.C., we understand how difficult it can be to even think about a civil claim when you're trying to heal from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident. However, if you were injured because of another motorist's negligence or recklessness, you may be able to seek compensation for damages and losses. This can include medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, emotional distress and more. We will take care of preparing your case for court so that you can concentrate on your recovery.
