There’s no denying the dangerousness motorcycles. Without the protection afforded by air bags and seat belts, riding a motorcycle on roads and highways carries enormous risk. Seasoned motorcyclists know it. Motorists sharing the road with motorcycles know it. And, unfortunately, insurance providers know it as well, and make no bones about discriminating against motorcycle riders who are injured in accidents. In fact, many insurance companies train their adjusters to blame motorcyclists for the motorcycle accidents they are involved in. This is not only unfair, it also prevents motorcyclists from putting the pieces of their lives back together again.
The stereotypes insurance providers use to discriminate against motorcyclists, like recklessness, speed freaks, and habitual disregard for traffic laws, are not only outdated, but detrimental to the recovery of accident victims often in desperate need of help. Their strategy is to keep the settlements they pay out as low as possible, if not deny them altogether. All too often, motorcycle accident victims are unprepared when they learn their motorcycle accident claim has been denied. Nor do they know how to defend themselves against the damaging stereotypes adjusters attempt to use against them.
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident through no fault of your own, don’t allow the insurance companies to push your around and deny you the settlement you deserve. The attorneys with the Wyoming Advocates can help you fight for the just compensation you are owed according to the law. With an Advocate on your side, you will always have an ally against the tactics used by the insurance companies.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Nobody knows better than a motorcyclist how safety is of supreme importance when riding a motorcycle. Since motorcycles do not have the same safety protections as automobiles, motorcyclists need to be ever vigilant if they want to remain safe on the road.
Motorcyclists do, however, frequently suffer serious injuries or even death when they are involved in accidents. If you one day find yourself the victim of a motorcycle accident, do not be surprised if insurance providers pretend to express sympathy for your situation, only to turn around and offer you a settlement that is too low to even pay half of your medical bills. Always keep in mind that insurance companies are a business first, and as such they will consistently put their business interests first, even if it means denying your claim completely and leaving you high and dry.

3 Best Motorcycle Safety Precautions You Should Take
If you ride a motorcycle on a regular basis, chances are you will one day be involved in a motorcycle accident. While there’s no sure-fire way to prevent yourself from being harmed, there are a number of safety precautions you can take to minimize the damage you sustain. The following are the best 3 safety precautions every motorcyclist should take.
Helmets Prevent Head Injuries
Did you know that a full 30% of motorcycle accident victims suffer disabling or possibly fatal head or neck injuries? The very best way to prevent such injuries is to always wear a helmet when out riding. Regardless of whether you’re riding for miles or just down the street, a helmet will keep your head safe.
Defensive Driving is the Way to Go
Most people talk about driving defensively, but few understand exactly what such driving means, and even fewer put it into practice when out traveling on the roads. In short, driving defensively means you expect the unexpected. Simply because you obey all of the traffic laws and obey the speed limit, doesn’t mean everyone else does as well. This is why you should pay special attention to your surroundings when you ride a motorcycle and be sure to maintain a safe distance when following behind other vehicles. Remember, defensive driving is safe driving.
Motorcycle Highway Style
While motorcycle riders are part and parcel to leather clothing as a fashion statement, leather pants and jackets go a long way in protecting riders from injury. Motorcyclists who are injured in motorcycle accidents often suffer deep scrapes, abrasions, painful cuts, lacerations, burns, and bruises. Such injuries could be prevented by leather clothing that is designed to absorb the impact and protect the skin of riders.
