Spring Brings Out The Motorcycles – And Accidents

Motorcycles are very popular in the springtime. The weather is getting nicer, the days are getting longer, and people are ready to get out and enjoy the fresh air.

However, with this increased popularity comes an increase in motorcycle accidents. In fact, according to the Insurance Information Institute, there is a higher percentage of accidents involving motorcycles in the spring than any other time of year.

There are a few reasons for this.

  1. There are more motorcycles on the road. This means that there are more opportunities for accidents to happen.
  2. Many motorcycle riders take advantage of the nice weather by riding without proper safety gear. This puts them at a higher risk for serious injuries if they are involved in an accident.
  3. Springtime is often when people start to get a little rusty on their driving skills. The winter months can be tough on everyone, and it can be easy to let your guard down when the weather gets nicer.

If you’re a motorcycle rider, or if you share the road with them, be sure to stay aware of the increased risk of accidents in the spring. Make sure you’re wearing all the proper safety gear, and be especially careful when you’re driving. The better we can all work together to keep everyone safe, the more fun we can all have this season.

Chong H. Ye is a Federal Way, WA personal injury trial lawyer who understands that when clients come to him with their legal matter, they need his experience and his readiness to fight the insurance companies on their behalf. Growing up in an immigrant community in Tacoma, WA, Chong witnessed first-hand the difficulties of a language barrier when his parents needed legal representation. Many times, his parents were forgotten once they signed the fee agreement. Realizing the impersonal nature of what his parents have experienced, he wanted to help immigrants or those who lacked any legal background maneuver their ways through legal problems, especially as it relates to personal injuries.
