The biker injury attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. are big supporters of May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Motorcycle Safety Awareness month is a campaign proclaimed by many local and county governments throughout the United States that calls attention to the dangers and vulnerabilities motorcyclists face on the roads and highways.
Throughout the month of May, the National Safety Council (NSC) encourages drivers to share the road with motorcycles and be extra alert when they are nearby. The NSC has good means behind this awareness campaign, as statistics do prove that most motorcycle crash injuries are caused by the negligence of another driver. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 75% of all motorcycle accidents happen when a vehicle fails to see the motorcycle before the collision.
The personal injury law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. represent victims injured in a Michigan motorcycle accident, and are immense advocates of this month as they see the results of catastrophic motorcycle accidents and the effect the injuries have on motorcyclist victims and their family throughout the entire spring and summer season.
This month is a great reminder to remind all drivers to be extra safe on the roads and keep a lookout for motorcyclists on our Michigan roads and highways. Injuries resulting from a biker accident can be catastrophic and detrimental to the victims and their families. It is very important that Michigan drivers are fully aware on the road, and to be free and clear of all distractions when behind the wheel.
