Motorcycle Safety Matters
Experienced attorney explains what you need to know
Staying safe on the road matters to motorcyclists. That’s because they know how serious a motorcycle accident can be for everyone involved. That’s why motorcycle safety matters at Michael D. Christensen Law Offices in Columbus.
For nearly two decades, motorcycle accident attorney Mike Christensen has worked with people hurt in seriously crashes caused by other drivers. Our law firm also understands how complicated these cases can be, especially since insurance companies sometimes blame motorcyclists for causing such collisions.
We know the truth. We know that other drivers often cause motorcycle accidents, then try to turn around and blame motorcyclists. That’s why we take such cases – and motorcycle safety – so seriously at our law firm.
How to stay safe on the road
So what can you do to stay safe on your motorcycle? Some of the best suggestions include:
- Wear protective clothing while riding your motorcycle.
- Take a motorcycle safety course.
- Regularly check your motorcycle. This includes:
- Tire tread wear
- Brake lights and turn signals
- Have your motorcycle properly maintained.
- Make sure other drivers can see you before changing lanes.
- Leave a safe distance between yourself and other vehicles.
Motorcycle safety matters. But even the safest riders can get hurt on the road due to another reckless driver. And when that happens, injured motorcyclists need to take strong legal action to protect their rights.
What we can do for you
The insurance company for the driver who caused your motorcycle accident will likely do one of two things. They may blame you for causing the collision. Or they make a lowball settlement offer and insist that they can’t offer you a penny more.
They don’t scare us. We know how to investigate motorcycle accidents and negotiate with insurance companies. And if they refuse to cooperate, we’re prepared to take them to court and fight for the money you rightfully deserve.
