Drivers might not watch for bikers at the start of the season

| Feb 15, 2019 | Motorcycle Accidents

While most motorcyclists won’t be riding right now, the nicer weather that is perfect for drives is coming up quick. You should make sure that your motorcycle is ready for the open road now so that you are prepared when the weather improves. On those first rides of the year, remember that motorists might not be as vigilant about watching for bikers as what they are later in the year when they see them more often.

We know that you just want to get your ride in and make it back home safely. Unfortunately, that might be thwarted by a driver who isn’t paying attention. In these cases, you might decide that you are going to seek compensation from the driver for the damages that you face because of the injuries.

The impact of a car hitting a motorcyclist is serious. The person on the motorcycle can face very serious injuries like broken bones, head injuries and spinal cord damages. These can be lifelong issues for the rider. Even a case of road rash can prove to be devastating because there is a good chance that the area will become infected since the skin is broken by pavement that is germ-ridden and contains many different substances like vehicle fluids.

We know that the financial impact of the situation can be hard to deal with. When we seek compensation on your behalf, we are attempting to have the person who caused the crash pay for the related bills. A successful claim can help to reduce your stress since you won’t have to cover those costs.
