Why motorcyclists are like soldiers in battle

If you've ever been to battle -- in a real combat situation -- you know that that this analogy doesn't come close to being accurate, but perhaps it could serve an important purpose. When you go out on the road on a motorcycle, you need to be as careful and attentive to details as a soldier going into battle.

Man killed, evidence not to be suppressed in New Hampshire trial

A man who tested above the legal limit for intoxication following a fatal crash requested that evidence be suppressed in the case against him. The news has reported that the request has been denied, thanks to the orders of the judge.

How can you keep safe on a motorcycle in the autumn and winter?

There are a number of risks that motorcyclists face on the roads, and in the autumn and winter, they can become more dangerous than ever. Things like potholes and changing weather conditions can impact one's ability to ride safely, and other drivers may not be thinking about motorcyclists being on the road because of the time of year.

You can avoid a crash with training and observation

Data has shown that the highest risk of being involved in an accident on a motorcycle takes place when a rider is new to the roads. For example, in the story of one man, he recounted receiving a motorcycle for his 40th birthday party. He took a weekend training course and got a New York license soon after. Within a couple of months, he had dropped the bicycle twice while he was riding. Both of those times, his main injury was only his pride; he admits that both times, he was cocky and fortunate that he dropped his bike at a standstill.

Prove fault to get the compensation you need

Proving fault in a motorcycle crash can help you get the compensation you need after you suffer an injury. Determining who was at fault is a task left to police, but it can also help if the other driver admits to causing the accident. Whether it's a mistake or negligence, it's the responsibility of the at-fault party to pay for the medical care and other financial losses you suffer.

Hit by a car? You may be entitled to compensation

Motorcycle accidents happen often, and the injuries that result can be some of the most devastating. Fortunately, motorcyclists do have some of the best tools at their disposal. The bikes can easily be maneuvered to avoid accidents, and they have powerful brakes. They are free of obstructions, and one can look around freely.
