Motorcycle Safety in Palm Springs, CA

The Palm Springs motorcycle accident lawyers at Cohn & Swartzon, P.C. know that when motorcyclists and drivers of other motor vehicles are cautious while out on the road, they can reduce their chances of being involved in a fatal accident.

Below are some motorcycle safety tips that have been compiled by the firm to encourage riders to be safe while driving their motorcycles, sports bikes and cruiser bikes in California:

  • Before you drive your motorcycle, give it a once over. Look for defects that may compromise your safety, such as defective brakes.
  • Take your bike in for regular maintenance. Just like other motor vehicles, motorcycles need to be regularly checked by mechanics to ensure that they are safe to ride.
  • Always wear a helmet. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration reports that when people wear helmets, they reduce their chances of being injured or killed during an accident by 37%.
  • Along these lines, people should also wear protective riding gear like sunglasses, gloves, leather jackets, jeans and boots. By wearing protective gear, people can minimize their injuries if they are involved in an accident.
  • Never drink before riding your motorcycle. Anytime you consume alcohol, your judgment and coordination is impaired. Driving while under the influence can increase your chances of being involved in a serious motorcycle accident.
  • Remain conscientious of other drivers and pedestrians. By remaining cautious and alert, you can prevent a collision.
  • If you're driving a street bike like a sports bike, do not drive with passengers. These bikes were meant not meant to carry passengers and could easily skid or roll over from the extra weight.
  • Make sure that you receive proper training prior to operating a motorcycle. There are numerous classes and programs for new motorcycle operators to choose from. These courses will provide you with useful safety and motorcycle operation information.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • They made me feel comfortable.

    “I was in a car accident that resulted in injuries, time off of work, and repeated visits to medical providers. I sought the assistance of Cohn & Swartzon to assist me in recovering my lost wages and help with paying my medical bills. The firm was so friendly and really educated me about how auto insurance and medical insurance works when you're involved in an accident. They made me feel comfortable with the process and more importantly I never had to deal with negotiating with the insurance companies for any of my medical bills. I was able to recover my lost wages, my medical expenses were paid in full, and I received a very good recovery for my pain and suffering. I have definitely recommended this law firm to family and friends many times and they all have been pleased with their service, knowledge and expertise.”

  • Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”
