Proper Motorcycle Attire Prevents Leg Lacerationsfrom:
Traffic accidents happen every minute of every day. One of the worst accidents notorious for leg lacerations is the motorcycle accident. When a motor bike crashes into another vehicle or the rider loses control and an unprotected cyclist lays it down in the road, there may not be much left but teeth, hair, and eyeballs. It is very important the motorcyclist wears leather chaps to protect him/herself from leg lacerations. The sad thing is that many cyclists wear inappropriate attire, such as shorts, light weight jeans, and tennis shoes when on the road. Carelessness such as this greatly increases the risk of leg lacerations and other serious injuries.
In keeping with safety requirements most all cyclists remember to wear a helmet; in the event of a crash they may avoid serious head injuries. However, the unprotected body making contact with concrete and gravel can be just as life threatening as a head injury. The most common injuries the motorcyclist can incur are head and neck injuries, broken bones, leg lacerations and abrasions caused by impact on the road. Not only is there impact, but the cyclist often picks up pieces of the road in the form of gravel which becomes imbedded to shred and tear the skin. Deep leg lacerations are common, and medical personnel may spend hours removing bits of gravel and asphalt from the deep tissues of the arms, legs, back and front torso.
Sadly, a motorcycle accident will often happen because the motorist doesn’t see the motorcyclist in time before a collision happens. Sometimes an act of road rage or some type of hostile driving action takes place and a motorcycle gets caught in the action. When cyclists are not properly attired they can be seriously injured or even killed. A motorcyclist can count him/herself lucky if he/she comes through a crash with a bit of road rash; often times the outcome is much worse with open gaping wounds where contact with the road causes arm and leg lacerations. Often times the extremities are lacerated down into the muscle tissue exposing ligaments and bones. Leg lacerations are less likely to occur if the cyclist is wearing protective clothing such as heavy denims and leathers. Leathers are the closest thing to full body protection, as body armor is not an option.
Driving defensively is the best way to keep the motorcycle upright and on the road. Taking precautions and being aware of the drivers around you is the best way to prevent serious injury, such as a leg laceration. The only protection between you and the road is your helmet, your leather jacket, chaps, and boots. You may want to feel the wind on your skin, and for it to blow through your hair, but if you do you may not live to ride again.
