Have you been involved in a motorcycle accident? Have you wondered if there was something you could have done do to avoid the accident? The truth is that there was probably nothing you could do to avoid a motorcycle accident that was caused by another party’s negligence. The good news is that if your motorcycle accident was caused by the careless, reckless or negligent behavior of another party, you may be eligible to receive compensation to help you with your medical bills and lost wages. Money will not take away the pain you have suffered but it will help you receive the medical attention that you need in order to recover from your injuries.
The Levinson Law Group is different from other law firms. We are not only concerned with helping you receive compensation for your injuries; we want to ensure that you receive the medical attention you need to heal physically and emotionally. Therefore, we accept cases on a contingent fee. That means that if there is no recovery in your case you pay no fee. And in most cases, we even advance the costs.
How to Avoid a Motorcycle Accident
It is difficult to avoid a motorcycle accident caused by another party’s negligence. You can take steps to protect yourself and avoid a motorcycle accident as you enjoy riding. Below are tips on how to avoid a motorcycle accident but if you find yourself the victim of an accident, please seek immediate medical attention and call our office for a free consultation.
- Wear brightly colored clothing. Other drivers do not watch out for motorcycles. Because motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles, they have a smaller presence on roadways. Wearing brightly colored clothing can help increase your visibility to other drivers.
- Watch for other drivers at intersections. One of the most common causes of accidents is other drivers turning in front of a motorcycle. To avoid a motorcycle accident, use extra caution as you are approaching intersections and watch for signals that other drivers may be turning in front of you (i.e. they are slowing down, changing lanes, etc.).
- Take a defensive driving course. If you are just beginning to ride, taking a motorcycle driving course can give you much needed information that can help you avoid a motorcycle accident.
- Do not ride in a vehicle’s blind spot. Not all drivers turn their heads to check their blind spot before changing lanes. Most use their mirrors instead. Avoid riding in the blind spot of other vehicles – if you can see the driver’s eyes in the mirror, the driver can see you.
