February has been a wild weather month in Nashville. Temperatures have ranged from the 30s to the 80s, making it one of the oddest winter seasons that we can remember. Not that we’re complaining. We think everyone can appreciate a warm, sunny winter day, when short sleeves are in order and the outdoors is the place to be. For motorcycle enthusiasts, a temporary respite from the cold is a perfect excuse to get out and ride. Unfortunately, it only takes one act of carelessness for an afternoon ride to turn tragic.
Keeping motorcyclists safe is a shared responsibility between riders and drivers alike. Riders need to ride safely and cautiously, no matter the circumstances. And drivers need to be aware of others on the road, especially motorcycle riders. When a driver fails to live up to that responsibility, the results can be fatal. If the victim survives the accident, it can be difficult to prove fault on their own. That’s why it’s important to consult with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney following your crash.
