New York City Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Not surprisingly, most motorcycle accidents that occur are not the fault of the motorcyclist, but of a motor vehicle operator who either does not see the motorcyclist or does not understand the rules of the road. As a motorcyclist, you have a responsibility to ride safely, but you cannot change the unsafe behavior of others.

Avoiding Motorcycle Accidents
Safe driving behavior can go a long way towards avoiding motorcycle accidents. Remember that according to the rules of the road, motorcycles should be treated as if they were just another motor vehicle, and follow these steps:
- Avoid tailgating
- Do not weave between traffic or ride on the shoulder
- Obey all traffic laws, including the appropriate use of turn signals
- Position yourself so as not to create a hazard
- Avoid the “blind spot” of other vehicles
Riding a motorcycle is, for the most part, a safe and rewarding pastime. However, the presence of other drivers who may be negligent or reckless can sometimes create an unsafe environment on the roadways. Being injured in a motorcycle accident can cause severe injuries requiring many thousands of dollars in medical bills and other expenses.
