The South Dakota motorcycle accident statistics  are clear: riding can be simultaneously enjoyable and dangerous. Over 96 percent of all motorcycle crashes result in some sort of injury to the rider, almost half of which are serious or life-threatening in nature.

Sometimes you simply cannot avoid being caught up in a South Dakota motorcycle accident. In fact, 75 percent of all motorcycle crashes involve another vehicle, and 60 percent are caused by other drivers who do not see or respect the rights of riders on the road.

However, there are some simple steps you can take to ensure that you and your passengers are as safe as possible while riding a motorcycle:

  • Always wear a helmet;
  • Always wear protective clothing;
  • Obey all traffic and speed limit laws;
  • Drive defensively around cars;
  • Complete a motorcycle safety course;
  • NEVER drink and drive.

If you follow these safety tips, you can drastically minimize your chances of being injured in a motorcycle crash. If safe driving is not enough, though, and you or a loved one gets injured by a negligent driver, you may be eligible to recover damages as a result.

The financial compensation you may be able to earn can cover your medical bills, ongoing care, home renovations, missed time at work, and even very real instances of pain and emotional suffering. Call our South Dakota personal injury lawyers today to learn more about your legal rights.
