Have You Been Involved in a Motorcycle Accident?

Motorcycles are becoming increasingly popular; however, riding a motorcycle is a very dangerous way to travel. Motorcycle riders are 30 times more likely to be killed in an accident than drivers in a car or truck. Also, 40% of all motorcycle accidents happen when the motorcyclist is riding straight on the road and another vehicle turns into them.

The devastating statistics continue; between 1966 and 2000, more than 100,000 motorcyclists were killed in accidents on the road. The protection that motorcyclists have is minimal, and they are very susceptible to the environment around them. It is extremely important to take safety precautions in order to prevent accidents.

Some suggestions to keep in mind before riding your motorcycle are:

  • Get a properly fitted helmet
  • Wear leather pants and jacket
  • Avoid speeding and weaving in and out of lanes
  • Stay out of blind spots of other vehicles
  • Always use your turn signals
  • Brake slowly
  • Avoid tailgating

Unfortunately, even if all of these precautions are followed, accidents can happen because of a negligent party. There are several steps that should be taken right away after getting into an accident on your motorcycle. The first thing that should be done is calling 911 and any necessary emergency services needed on the scene. Second, exchange information and record details about the other vehicles. Third, record the names and information of the witnesses. Lastly, contact a Dallas personal injury attorney who can help you receive compensation. You can receive compensation in many areas after being involved in a motorcycle accident, such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Wages lost
  • Pain and suffering

If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another party, make sure that you receive the compensation that you deserve by seeking assistance from Lenahan Law Firm.

Call today for a free evaluation, and know that you only have to pay if we get you a recovery!
