The sun is out, the temperatures are up, and people are out on the road.
Summer is a great time to enjoy a change of pace and venture out more
often. Unfortunately, that means busy streets and crowded highways (especially
in places like Long Island), and these create a heightened risk of
motorcycle accidents and injuries in New York.
As a motorcyclist, you are always at risk of being overlooked by other
drivers. When the roads become more crowded, you may become more likely
to be hit by a careless driver. However, you can still get out there and
enjoy the summer sun without putting yourself at risk.
How to Avoid Motorcycle Accidents in the Summer Months

- Invest in breathable layers (jacket, gloves, pants, etc.) that will keep
you from dehydrating or overheating while riding.
- Always wear a helmet with a shield that will keep roadway debris, bugs,
smog, and bright light out of your eyes.
- When you feel like you may be overheating, listen to your body, pull over,
and seek shade and water.
- If possible, avoid driving at peak traffic hours or at night in order to
prevent accidents with reckless or hurried drivers.
Despite taking all these precautions and more, you may still end up in
an accident with another motorist. Should this happen to you, it is imperative
to involve a motorcycle accident lawyer right away in order to ensure
your medical expenses and injury-related costs are covered by the person
or driver who hurt you.
