Make Yourself More Noticeable as a Motorcyclist
Make no mistake, driving a motorcycle in Alabama, Georgia or anywhere is risky. However, when you need assistance to recover medical and other expenses from a motorcycle accident in Georgia or Alabama, there is no safer place to turn than the proud professionals at the Dwayne L. Brown, Personal Injury Law Firm.
Make Yourself More Visible as a Motorcyclist on the Road
Motorcyclists should make every effort to make themselves more visible on the roadways of Alabama. Drivers face so many distractions. The more noticeable you are, the better your chances are of staying accident-free.
Before getting on your motorcycle to head to work or just out for a ride, check yourself. Here are five methods to stay safer on your motorcycle:
- Are you wearing bright-colored clothes and riding gear?
- Is your bike a bright color, or does it have reflective strips?
- Did you add more auxiliary lights to your bike than what the manufacturer gave you?
- Do you use the high beams whenever traveling on the darkened back roads of Alabama or Georgia?
- Do you have a long-sleeve leather jacket and approved helmet?
Although some riders prefer not wearing a helmet, the more protective gear you wear, the less likely you will suffer catastrophic injuries if you are the victim of a distracted or careless driver. Moreover, helmet laws exist in most states and local jurisdictions.
Don’t Let an Insurance Firm Ignore You
Every day we read horrific stories of motorcycle riders who suffered paralyzing injuries, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injuries, damage to internal organs, broken bones, pavement burns and more.
Many of these injuries could require expensive medical procedures with a long hospital stay and often weeks, months or years of recovery. In some instances, the paralysis cannot be corrected, leaving the rider paralyzed. Therefore, the family must renovate their home and vehicle to accommodate a wheelchair. These alterations are not cheap.
When the at-fault driver’s insurance company refuses to pay, what then? Of course, the victim’s family should not have to bear these expenses alone.
Families Should Consult Dwayne Brown for Assistance

When you have a lawyer in your corner with a reputation for winning seven-figure compensatory awards, it lets the insurance companies know you will not settle for an offer that doesn’t cover expenses.
