Drug and Alcohol Related Motorcycle Accidents

While you’ve probably heard you shouldn’t get behind the wheel if you’ve been drinking, do you know the same rule applies to getting on your motorcycle?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 39% of motorcycle fatalities on Labor Day Weekend in 2019, were the result of alcohol-impaired motorcycle riders.

Whether you get a D.U.I. or suffer a serious injury crash, life will never be the same.

There are motorcycle safety tips that go beyond abstaining from drugs or alcohol when you’re hitting the open road.

Be rested.

Be mindful of the weather.

Wear proper attire.

Wear a helmet.

Do your pre-ride checklist.

Ride defensively.

After any type of motorcycle accident, it's extremely important to know what mistakes to avoid so you can receive a fair and proper settlement. If you've been in a motorcycle collision, working with a skilled and experienced personal injury attorney can be your best move to get the justice you rightfully deserve.
