Each year, thousands of motorcyclists across the state of Ohio are seriously injured or killed as the result of accidents. The Ohio Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy point out that many of these accidents are the result of motorcyclists being inexperienced. This claim is supported by a study conducted at the University of Southern California that found 92 percent of motorcyclists involved in crashes are self-taught or trained by a non-professional.

In an effort to help reduce these numbers, riding courses are being offered throughout Ohio to educate new riders on how to stay safe on a bike. An article from The News-Messenger explains the next of these events will be held at Terra State Community College in Fremont, Ohio, on October 13.

During the course, participants will receive both classroom and real-world instruction on how to safely operate a motorcycle. Motorcycles and helmets are provided to participants, meaning individuals only need a motorcycle learner’s permit and $50 registration fee. The class will take place over a three-day period and will total 16 hours of instruction time for riders.

Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy’s team of Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers recognizes the dangers that inexperienced riders of motorcycles can pose to themselves and others around them. That’s why the firm encourages anyone considering learning to ride a motorcycle to participate in one of the upcoming courses.
