Representing riders in West Virginia and Ohio
The motorcycle accident attorney at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC know that motorcyclists are usually safe and responsible on the roads. We know this for a fact because we have represented many motorcyclists who were hurt in an accident caused by the negligence of another driver.
Motorcyclists are very vulnerable when riding, as they have little protection in a crash. Helmets are not required by law for most riders in Ohio, but are recommended. There are simple steps all motorcyclists can take to reduce the risk of a motorcycle accident and stay safe on the road:
Use protective gear - By law, motorcyclists must wear a helmet in West Virginia, as well as eye protection. But there are other steps you can take, too. Use full-fingered leather gloves. Wear motorcycle boots that have good ankle and foot support. Wearing leather or denim can provide some protection from road rash if you are in accident.
