Accident Scene Management Classes: Why They Are Important for Motorcyclists

By Breyer Law Offices on September 7, 2017

If you own a motorcycle, you already understand the risks inherent in riding it. Motorists are less likely to notice motorcycles for many reasons, including that they aren’t looking for them, motorcycles are less visible because of their smaller size, and because motorists sometimes drive distracted. Motorcyclists also are at risk of suffering greater injury because they are more exposed than people inside cars. Even while wearing helmets and other protective gear, they risk road rash, broken bones, and head trauma.

Unfortunately, many motorcyclists in the Arizona area don’t have the skills necessary to protect themselves and fellow riders from greater injury while awaiting emergency medical services. They may know how to plan enjoyable rides through places like Sunset Point, Bartlett Lake, Wickenburg, Apache Trail, and Castle Hot Springs. They might know how to pack carefully and make the right preparations. They might even have a certificate from completing a defensive driving class. But many don’t know what to do in the event of an accident.

One proactive thing you can do to prepare for an accident is to take accident scene management classes. These classes give you the skills you need to care for your own injuries and injuries of others while waiting for emergency medical personnel.

By Breyer Law Offices on June 23, 2017

Some states have recognized the importance of wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle, and have made it law requiring a helmet while riding a motorcycle. Arizona is not one of them, with the exception of children under the age of 18.

But motorcyclists should wear their helmets at all times—even when just going down their own streets or for a ride around their properties. It’s been proven time and time again; motorcycle helmets save lives. And wearing one could save yours.
