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.

  • They were completely honest, and offered great advice.

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the Firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”
