Anyone who has taken drivers’ education should be familiar with the concept of defensive driving. We should, simply put, know how to avoid accidents whenever possible. Nevertheless, drivers often fail to take the necessary precautions with motorcyclists and, unfortunately, it can be difficult for a motorcyclist to avoid the consequences of other drivers’ negligence.
At David & Associates we know that motorcycles may be inherently more dangerous than other vehicles, but we also know that other drivers need to drive safely. If you were injured in an accident, one of our attorneys can help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
A biker who swerves off the road or lays a bike down to avoid a bad driver cannot do so without suffering serious injuries. Likewise, it’s more difficult for motorcyclists to stop quickly — swerving abruptly risks tipping his or her bike, and slamming on the brakes can cause one’s bike to flip.
As such, there are situations where there’s little a motorcyclist can do to circumvent serious injury.
