Why Eric Blank Injury Attorneys?
As a motorcycle enthusiast, you do anything and everything to protect yourself from the dangers out on the road, but accidents can still happen no matter how well you prepare. Eric Blank Law is ready to support you and your claim if another motorist is responsible for your injuries. However, there are some tips to help you be aware of road hazards and avoid collision or injury:
- Invest in quality protective riding gear. First and foremost, it is required by Nevada law to wear a Department of Transportation (DOT) approved helmet. Because of the several exposed vulnerabilities while riding, any additional protective gear is recommended. Suit up with riding gloves, pants, jackets, and boots.
- Be sure to drive defensively. With a motorcycle being so much smaller than other vehicles, it’s more likely that another motorist may not see you. Keep a vigilant eye out for other vehicles that seem like they may not be paying attention, use all your signals, watch for vehicles that are changing lanes or turning, and avoid tailgating.
- Follow all road laws. Be sure to avoid lane splitting, weaving between vehicles, and riding in blind spots. Try to remain visible at all times to reduce the chance of an injury collision.
