There’s no better way to feel the exhilaration of the open road then on a motorcycle, with the wind in your face and your cares far away. However, with the great reward that comes with motorcycle riding also comes an inherent risk, especially on busy Chicago streets. With only two wheels instead of four, the danger is doubled. In a busy city like Chicago, accident happens all too often. Studies show that recently, reported motorcycle accidents are up by a whopping 39%.
Motorcyclists Sustain More Injuries
We know that over 2/3 of motorcycle accidents result from the negligence of passenger vehicle drivers. Unfortunately, motorcycles are often in other drivers’ blind spots, so they’re frequently the victim of quick lane changes. Making matters worse, your injury will almost always be more severe than that of the other driver. In fact, 80% of motorcycle crashes result in injury or death. If you’re a motorcyclist, a simple fender-bender can turn into a serious life-or-death situation, even if you’re wearing the proper protection. Common injuries include:
- Broken wrists, ankles, or limbs
