Ways to Stay Safe On Your Motorcycle, and What to Do If You Are in an Accident

Jeffrey S. Witten, B.A., LL.B.
Personal Injury Lawyer at McComb Witten Marcoux

Is motorcycle riding dangerous?

Sure it is. But that’s also part of the fun. Riders who like the open road, the feeling of wind in their faces, and the unbridled freedom when you’re on a bike know that there are inherent risks to rising a motorcycle.

Smart riders do everything in their power to stay safe. This means avoiding Vancouver motorcycle wrecks as well as preparing for the worst.

Some of the things you can do to minimize the risks are:

  • Wear protective clothing
  • ALWAYS wear a helmet
  • Give your motorcycle routine maintenance
  • Take a safety class
  • Drive defensively. Assume that no one sees you, because they probably don’t!
  • Check your mirrors
  • Never drive in the blind spot

If you do all these things, you are better prepared than most. However, there is no such thing as being perfectly safe. The unfortunate reality is that roads are dangerous and riders are especially vulnerable to Vancouver motorcycle crashes.

What are you going to do about it?

Once you are injured in a Vancouver motorcycle accident, you have the ability to sue to enforce your legal rights, and earn the financial compensation—money—you deserve to get better and get back on your feet. Or you can just let it slide.

The big insurance companies that represent almost 90 percent of car and truck drivers in British Columbia will try to boss you around. They will say they want to be your friend, but behind closed doors they are prepping for war.

The best thing to do is to bring the battle to them. Get the best, most aggressive BC motorcycle accident lawyer to accept your case, and let them fight for the money you deserve.
