Protect Yourself From Distracted Drivers While on Your Motorcycle

While all drivers should have their full attention on the road, motorcyclists can help themselves by taking steps to be as visible and safe as possible, including:

  • Using your headlight at all times, even during the day
  • Wearing bright clothing and/or a reflective vest
  • Using reflective tape on your motorcycle
  • Trying to avoid riding in other drivers’ blind spots
  • Tapping your breaks to give the driver behind you a warning when stopping
  • Using your horn
  • Being extra aware on congested roads and in traffic jams

Myrtle Beach Motorcyclists Have Rights After a Crash

Even good drivers can cause accidents, and when they happen to motorcyclists, often the victims suffer serious injuries. Despite the stigma associated with motorcyclists and their perceived reckless driving behavior, motorcyclists have the same rights as anyone else on the road. If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a crash, you may be eligible to file a legal claim against the distracted driver responsible. Accident victims can obtain compensation for:

  • Medical care
  • Future medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Motorcyclists can fall victim to the careless behavior of other drivers and suffer a serious injury. When they do, distracted drivers should be held accountable. Our experienced lawyers have helped many accident victims obtain fair compensation for their injuries, and we may be able to help you, too.
