Safety tips for motorcyclists

Most bikers know the following safety tips. But it never hurts to be reminded of things riders can do to stay safe on the road:

  • Regularly maintain your motorcycle
  • Make sure your brakes work properly
  • Make sure your tires have sufficient tread
  • Wear protective clothing
  • Maintain a safe distance between yourself and other vehicles
  • Always use turn signals when turning or changing lanes
  • Look twice for other vehicles when turning or changing lanes

But even if you do everything right, there's no guarantee that you can avoid an accident involving another vehicle. Other drivers often don't pay attention to motorcycles on the road. They don't look carefully when changing lanes or turning, and accidents involving motorcyclists often occur.

How we can help you

Knowing what to do after a motorcycle accident can be confusing. Insurance companies will likely put pressure on you to settle your case quickly. Accepting such an offer can be tempting, especially since medical bills and other accident-related expenses can add up fast.

Don't fall for their trap. In most cases, quick settlement offers don't even come close to covering all of your accident-related expenses. And since the true cost of your crash might not be known for several months or years, agreeing to accept an offer right away could end up costing you thousands or even millions of dollars depending on the severity of your crash.

Many law firms avoid such complicated cases. We thrive on them. That's because we believe in fighting for justice for accident victims. Our attorneys can work with you and help you secure the settlement you rightfully deserve. And since we limit the number of clients we work with, we can focus on your case and making sure your best interests always come first. Contact us to learn more about how we can help you.
