A regular theme in the motorcycle accidents our law firm handles is that the defendant/the party that hit the biker, says that they did not see the biker or his or her bike. Bikes have a very low profile, don’t take up as much space as even a small car and are not well lit. As such, this is not surprising. A tip from your Springfield motorcycle accident attorney – if you want to avoid having to call someone like us to represent you, do the following:
- Flash your brake lights – if you see a car pulling up to a stop behind you
- Ride with your headlight on at all times – we do in Illinois
- Use your turn signals at all times
- Wear bright colors on your helmet and your clothes
- Wear reflective clothing to grab other drivers’ attention
