Thousands of motorcyclists die in crashes each year in the United States. Some of these accidents involve only the motorcycle, while others are multiple-vehicle crashes. In our slides show, our experienced attorneys present 10 tips to prevent motorcycle accident injuries.
While you cannot completely reduce the risk of a motorcycle crash, you can take steps to prevent such accidents. Because motorists often fail to be aware of the presence of bikers on the road, much of this boils down to defensive riding and staying alert.
Intersections are one of the most dangerous spots for motorcycles. Look out for motorists who fail to see you or fail to recognize the speed at which you are traveling. This type of oversight can lead to the motorist turning left in front of you or failing to yield the right of way.
If you believe it is someone else's negligence that led to your motorcycle accident and the resulting injuries, then you may be entitled to pursue compensation. In a claim handled by our attorneys, we will pursue maximum compensation on your behalf. When successful, these monetary awards are granted for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering.
