Whether you have been riding a motorcycle for years or days, chances are you’ve probably had some close calls. The sad truth is, people who drive cars, trucks or tractor trailers often fail to see bikers. When we speak to our clients, it’s unbelievable to hear about all the times a driver has changed lanes in front of them without looking, forcing our client to take evasive action. Not mention the countless times a driver has changed lanes without using a signal or seeing who might be in that lane next to them.
If you ride a motorcycle you have probably heard the skidding of tires behind you while you’ve been stopped at a light, and thought to yourself, “Is this it?” Unfortunately, despite improvements of motorcycle equipment, it is getting more dangerous to ride a motorcycle these days. This is most likely because of the fact that more drivers are distracted these days, from things like cell phones or the thousands of buttons that cars have now. Drivers are putting biker’s in grave danger because they are too busy looking at their cell phones instead of paying attention.
If you have been injured in an accident while riding a motorcycle, you may be able to pursue compensation for your injuries and losses.
