Injury Lawyer Todd Leonard Wants Motorcyclists to Stay Safe While Enjoying New Jersey this Fall


Todd J. Leonard, Esq.

Denville, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) October 26, 2022 – During the Fall in New Jersey, motorcyclists who take to the road in more significant numbers need to keep safety in mind. Indeed, the fall months—including September, October, and November—see some of the highest motorcycle accident rates. Indeed, the number of motorcycle accidents in New Jersey has consistently increased, especially during the Fall months.

New Jersey personal injury lawyer Todd Leonard reminds all riders of the dangers Fall riding presents and asks everyone—both motorcyclists and drivers—to take extra precautions this season to avoid a tragic accident.

Tips on How Motorcyclists Can Stay Safe

Motorcyclists must take extra precautions when riding during September and October because, historically, these months experience an incredibly high amount of motorcycle accidents. Some of the safety measures motorcyclists should keep in mind when heading out for a Fall ride include:

1. Always wear a helmet.
2. Avoid riding when the roads are wet.
3. Be aware of gravel, road debris, uneven road surfaces, or animals.
4. Dress appropriately for the weather.
5. Avoid “lane splitting.”
6. Leave plenty of room between the vehicle ahead of the motorcycle.

Of course, from a motorcyclist's perspective, some accidents are unavoidable. In these cases, injured riders may consider bringing a personal injury lawsuit against the party who caused the accident. If successful, a motorcycle injury lawsuit can provide injured riders with meaningful compensation to cover their accident-related expenses, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Tips for Drivers of Cars and Trucks to Avoid a Motorcycle Accident

Undoubtedly, drivers need to do their part to avoid motorcycle accidents. The first thing drivers should remember when driving this season is they will likely see more motorcyclists on the road. Motorists must keep the following in mind:

1. Keep an eye out for motorcyclists.
2. Check blind spots.
3. Never tailgate a motorcyclist.
4. Avoid drinking and driving.
5. Provide the motorcyclist extra space, especially in poor weather conditions.
6. Don’t share the lane.
