May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and The William Mattar Law offices wants to get the word out to be alert to bikers on the road. Megan Lederhouse, says unfortunately they have seen many devasting motorcycle accidents which is why this awareness is so important to their law firm. She says motorcyclists tend to sustain very serious injury due to lack of protection you would find with a vehicle such as steel frame and airbags. She says there also tends to be a rise in catastrophic accidents with the nicer weather so this is a great time to remind everybody that we need to stay alert and avoid distractions while driving.
The William Mattar Law offices have put together some tips and information to keep everybody safe this motorcycle season. You can go to WilliamMattar.com to view that information. Some important things to keep in mind are to be aware of you blind spots especially when making turns. Also, if you see one biker just assume that there are more. Give bikers a little extra space, driving a motorcycle requires different maneuvers then a car or truck.
