Morrow Ga Motorcycle Accident Attorney
The thrill of the open road is hard to beat, but when you’re on your bike, you’re far more vulnerable to all the risks of the road, including the life-threatening negligence of other drivers. If a motorist’s negligence causes you to be injured in a motorcycle accident, an experienced Morrow motorcycle accident attorney is standing by to help.
Other Drivers Owe You a Duty of Care
When you are on your bike, you cut a much lower profile on the road, but other motorists owe you the same duty of care (or have the same responsibility to your safety) that they do to every other motorist out there. These responsibilities include:
- Motorists are responsible for driving distraction-free and for being on the lookout for motorcyclists in their midst. When a motorist is texting or otherwise engaged with his or her phone, motorcyclists are far more likely to escape their attention.
- Motorists are responsible for checking their blind spots carefully before changing lanes. When drivers fail to do so, motorcyclists can pay the ultimate price.
- Motorists are responsible for allowing you your own lane and for not attempting to share it with you at any point.
- Motorists are responsible for allowing ample distance between themselves and any forward motorcycles (accommodating the fact that motorcycles need less stopping distance).
