Macon Georgia Motorcycle Accident Attorney
When you are on your bike, nothing but your helmet and any safety gear you wear comes between you and a motorcycle accident. To make the matter that much more dangerous, you are also more vulnerable to being hit in the first place when you ride. If another driver causes you to be injured in a motorcycle accident, don’t delay consulting with an experienced Macon motorcycle accident attorney.
When You’re on Your Bike, You’re Vulnerable
When you ride, you are more vulnerable to the risks of the road for the following reasons:
- You take up less space on the road on your bike, which makes it more difficult for drivers to see you, and which makes it far easier for you to get lost in the blind spots of other drivers.
- Because you travel on only two wheels and lack the same degree of connection with the road (and because balance is an issue), you are more susceptible to the dangers associated with bad weather and other risk factors.
- Your bike is nimbler and requires shorter stopping distances than the heavier vehicles you share the road with, and when other motorists fail to account for this fact, they increase the risk that you will be hit from behind.
While it is true that you are more vulnerable when you ride your motorcycle, other drivers owe you the same duty of care they owe everyone else and are required to accommodate your safe passage.
