Hampton Motorcycle Accident Attorney
If you ride a motorcycle, you know how liberating that can be. The downside of all this, however, is that motorcycle accidents are among the deadliest accidents on our roads. If another motorist leaves you injured in a motorcycle crash, don’t delay consulting with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer in Hampton.
The fact is that when you’re on your bike, other motorists have a much harder time seeing you in their midst. Every time a driver gets behind the wheel, however, he or she is responsible for driving safely in relation to the traffic on the road, and that includes not only seeing motorcycles but also sharing the road with them safely.
Unfortunately, driver negligence comes in a variety of forms – and they are all especially dangerous for bikers. Such negligence includes:
- Distraction – When a motorist is distracted by anything other than driving safely (smartphone usage is especially dangerous and prevalent), it makes noticing motorcyclists that much more difficult and leaves the road less safe for everyone who travels on it.
- Impairment – Impaired drivers put everyone at risk, and motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to this extreme form of negligence.
- Exhaustion – Fatigue makes it more difficult to accomplish any task successfully, and this goes double for driving. Drivers who are overly fatigued have no business getting behind the wheel.
- Speed – Excessive speed kills. Drivers who choose to ignore the posted speed limit and speed excessively put us all in danger. Speed plays a critical role in a high percentage of harmful traffic accidents.
