Motorcyclists balance fun with safety to avoid accidents

In their classic ode to motorcycle riding, "Little Honda," The Beach Boys sing "It's more fun than a barrel of monkeys, that two wheel bike." The song is undeniably catchy and captures the joy of hopping on a motorcycle and taking off on a daylong excursion. This happy feeling is shared by many motorcycle riders who understand that there is no better way to travel.But in order to keep the good times going, motorcyclists must be aware of the potential dangers that can spring up suddenly when out on a ride. The fact is, those who ride motorcycles must temper their pursuit of fun with a healthy dash of caution.Road conditions are a constant concern for motorcyclists. Loose gravel, potholes and other similar impediments are not likely to be problematic for the driver of an automobile. But even minimal obstacles can become major hazards when moving at a high rate of speed on two wheels.If the worst happens and you suffer catastrophic injuries caused by a motorcycle accident, you could be facing time off from work and costly medical expenses. This is when you will need to file a claim with your insurance company for compensation. Unfortunately, sometimes insurance companies are loath to pay insured riders the full amount to which they are entitled.A Montana personal injury attorney may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve. The attorney could go over the terms of your policy to determine what you are owed. In addition, having an attorney represent your interests could possibly motivate an insurance company to be more cooperative in reaching a settlement.
