Little represents more freedom on the road than riding a motorcycle; looking for adventure and whatever comes your way. However, an accident can curtail the enjoyment of motorcycle riding quickly. Motorcycle accidents are just as common as automobile accidents and are often caused by negligent drivers. Such accidents affect your livelihood and quality of life. It is a simple matter of physics: motorcycles are smaller and unprotected and thus face greater danger in an accident. The San Jose motorcycle accident attorneys at Farling, Hecht & Davis, LLP can help in the event you are involved in a motorcycle accident.
Motorcycle accidents occur as a result of a variety of factors, most of which include failure to yield at an intersection, inattentive drivers, hazardous road conditions, lane-splitting, or lane encroachment. When you ride a motorcycle you are more aware of the dangers associated. You understand how some car and truck drivers frequently fail to pay attention. There is a saying in the motorcycle world that is “loud exhaust saves lives.”
