While all motorists must deal with road hazards like debris on the roadway, ice or slippery surfaces, motorcyclists must have a heightened focus on these potential hazards. Things that have little effect for motorists, such as uneven road surfaces, can be potentially fatal for a motorcyclist. It is important that bikers know what hazards to look out for and how to handle them.
If you believe that unsafe roads may have played a part in your motorcycle accident, our Phoenix motorcycle accident attorneys at Phillips Law Group are ready to assist. We can thoroughly investigate your accident to determine if you have a viable claim. If you decide to move forward, we can help you with all aspects of the claims process.

They should leave at least three seconds between them and the next vehicle. They can determine the distance by fixing on a stationary object and counting how many seconds it takes the vehicle in front of them and the motorcyclist to get there.
