Tireless Pursuit Of Your Goals

Failure to use mirrors may cause motorcycle accidents

Many motorcycle enthusiasts enjoy traveling Alabama roadways, either as part of large groups of travelers or as lone riders. Hopefully, anyone operating a motorcycle is properly licensed to do so and closely adhering to all posted road signs and existing traffic regulations. Other motorists often cause significant risks to bikers, however; in fact, those who fail to use their side-view mirrors often cause motorcycle accidents.

Most motorcyclists know how to position their vehicles within their lanes of travel so as to make themselves as visible as possible to surrounding drivers. This does not necessarily mean every driver is paying attention. If someone behind the wheel of a car or truck fails to check his or her vehicle mirrors, an upcoming motorcycle may not be seen.

This can quickly lead to disaster. If the driver of a car attempts a lane change or other roadway maneuver, a nearby motorcyclist may be unable to avoid a collision. When injuries occur that may have been prevented had it not been for driver negligence, victims and their families often experience understandable feelings of anger and frustration. They may also find a need to seek compensation for damages in court.

Alabama motorcycle accidents often lead to litigation when victims are unprepared to meet exorbitant costs related to their accidents. When another driver is deemed to have been negligent, the court may order that compensation be paid to the person or people who suffered because of the negligence. Anyone currently considering filing such a claim may request a meeting at The Law Offices of Vickers, White, and Griffin, PLLC for guidance.
