Motorcycle Safety is an Important Issue in Daytona Beach
The popularity of our local and state motorcycle rallies continues to increase every year and with it comes the need for caution and safety when riding a motorcycle. Motorcycle accidents and even deaths have occurred at rallies and events, but crashes and mishaps also happen other times when other drivers are just not paying attention or are not aware that there are motorcycles on the road.
A texting, impaired, or distracted motor vehicle driver can hit a motorcycle in just seconds. That same freedom of riding a motorcycle in the wind also makes a motorcyclist susceptible to the smallest bump or misstep by a driver of a car, which can create an accident and injuries.
Motorcycle accidents can cause serious problems, including injuries, loss of work, and damage to your bike. Michael Falkowski, a motorcycle accident attorney in Daytona Beach, has handled motorcycle accident matters for many years. This includes protecting your rights and making sure that you are fully compensated for your injuries, economic losses, and property damage.
