- Avoiding Distractions on a Motorcycle
Getting on a motorcycle is a big decision. Because of the small size of the vehicle, you are at the mercy of the drivers on the road in larger vehicles. Because of the lack of protection offered by a motorcycle, your body will take the brunt of any impact.
As you become more experienced riding a motorcycle, you will also need to develop good mental habits to keep your mind focused on the road every time you switch on the ignition. Otherwise, you increase your risk for injuries.
As your Phoenix, Arizona, motorcycle injury lawyers, we can guide you through the litigation process if you have been injured by a negligent, distracted driver. Call 1-800-706-3000 to schedule a free consultation with an experienced attorney.
So many people get hurt on the road because of the negligence of distracted drivers. A good rule of thumb when operating a motorcycle is to follow a set of routine driving habits. Stick to these every time to keep yourself from becoming distracted while on your bike:
- Be smart and choose when to ride. Do not go for a ride to “clear your head” if you are facing serious problems. Difficult personal problems that could pull your attention include dealing with a divorce, handling an out-of-control teenager, grappling with elderly parents, or getting fired from your job.
- Keep your attention focused by scanning all directions as you drive, including in front of you, on both sides, and occasionally over each shoulder.
- Do not look at your cell phone or adjust the radio while the bike is moving.
It is possible to get hurt or even killed if you lose your focus on the road. Give yourself the maximum motorcycle enjoyment by avoiding mental distractions and concentrating on your driving task.
If you or someone you love is hurt by a negligent driver or devastated by severe personal injuries from a motorcycle accident, we can help you hold the at-fault party responsible for their negligence.

Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
