    Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

    Last updated 22 days ago

    Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are extremely common. Motorcyclists are far more unprotected than ordinary drivers, and this means that they are much more likely to suffer severe injuries in the event of an accident. While motorcyclists can wear helmets to protect their heads, they do not have seat belts and there is little to protect them in the event of an accident. 

    A motorcycle accident can result in severe head injuries, including brain damage. It can also cause damage to the spinal cord. In extreme circumstances, a motorcycle accident can even lead to total or partial paralysis.

    If you have been badly hurt in a motorcycle accident, it’s important that you talk to a legal expert as soon as possible in order to ensure that you are adequately compensated for your pain and medical expenses. The Law Office of Neil Flit is dedicated to providing exceptional legal services for people in the Atlanta area.

    The Truth on Bicycle Safety Myths

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Even though many cities have separate bike lanes and laws to protect bicyclists, anyone riding a bicycle is still at risk of being hit by a motorist. To reduce the risk of suffering an accident, it’s important for bicyclists to obey traffic laws, watch out for other vehicles, and be prepared to take evasive action. Bicyclists should also do research on bike safety, correcting any misinformation they might have heard about riding and safety equipment.  

    Helmets aren’t necessary
    The brain is very fragile and easily damaged body part. Even simple falls can cause concussions or traumatic brain injuries that lead to lifelong problems. For this reason, every bike rider, not just children, should wear safety helmets. However, it’s equally important for bicyclists to wear the correct helmet and to fit it properly. For example, the helmet straps should fit snuggly underneath the chin, so the helmet can’t get twisted around the rider’s head. It’s also important for the helmet to cover the rider’s forehead, pointing straight ahead.

    Infants can ride in the bike seat
    It’s much more difficult to control a bicycle when there is an infant in the bike seat. In addition, it can lead to serious injury in the event of a collision. Some safety rules regarding biking with infants include only riding on bike paths, sidewalks, and quieter streets. In addition, infants under 12 months shouldn’t be carried on a bike, especially with older children as the bicyclist.

    Extra night equipment is unnecessary
    Preferably, only experienced bicyclists should ride during night, as visibility is extremely limited. To increase visibility, many states require night bicyclists to install a front lamp that emits a white light visible from 300 feet away. In addition, some states require red reflectors on the rear, which are visible at a distance of 500 feet.

    Teaching Your Kids about Pedestrian Safety

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Whether your children walk to school each day or frequently walk to a friend’s house, it’s important for them to reach their destination safely. As a parent, you can start teaching your children about pedestrian safety at an early age. In fact, the sooner you teach them about the potential dangers of unobservant motorists or bicyclists, the more likely your kids will grow up aware of their surroundings while walking. 

    Teach kids about sidewalks
    When talking to your kids about pedestrian safety, you want to avoid making them feel anxious or worried about crossing the street. Instead of focusing on the dangers of traffic, emphasize safe ways to get to their destination. For instance, explain to your kids that they should use the sidewalk whenever possible, as sidewalks were created for pedestrians to have a safe path.

    Encourage kids to put away electronics
    Walking safely requires a child to pay close attention to his or her surroundings. Your child will be less likely to pay attention if he or she is using electronic devices, such as iPods, phones, or video games. Not only should you discourage use of these devices while walking, but also you should set an example by putting away your electronics when acting as a pedestrian.

    Walk with your kids
    Before the age of 10, your kids will likely have difficulty judging the speed and distance of cars. For this reason, either you or someone you trust should always walk with your kids when they are at a young age. Walking with a trusted adult can also help your kids learn safe walking techniques, such as making eye contact with drivers before crossing the road and being on the lookout for cars that are turning or backing up.
