Allan Ziffra a Daytona Beach injury lawyer as well as a concerned Volusia County motorcycle enthusiast is concerned about the serious bike accidents. The recent accident on the north of the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport on U.S. 41 at 3 am was a catastrophe to scare all motorcycle riders. It happened when a Toyota Camry turned suddenly towards the left and made a biker go off course. The 19-year-old bike rider suffered serious injuries. He had to be flown by helicopter to the Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg. He was flown there by the EMS i.e. the Emergency Medical Services.
This brings home the fact that motorcycle riders have to be careful as they are prone to accidents and the injuries are definitely graver. There are various precautionary measures one can take to keep oneself safe.
Ziffra says one should maintain a safe distance form a vehicle if one is on a motorbike. At least a length of two cars is safe distance. This will prevent collision.
Bikers should be aware of the fact that it is not safe for them to slam on the breaks as the car owners do. The likelihood of losing balance is there and this can lead to multiple injuries.
The vehicle/airbag/seatbelt protection, which is available for four wheelers, is woefully absent for the motorbike riders.
There is a word for caution for car drivers too. It would be helpful if they also kept in mind that a sudden turn will make a motorbike rider lose balance and fall down or crash. Unlike the cars he doesn’t have the ability to balance.
Motorbike accidents can be caused by the careless ness of other vehicle drivers too. Compensation is often provided for those who might have suffered injuries due to the other party’s carelessness.
