Lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee*’ in Rainham cases– safe driving tips
- Hazard awareness – the chief way of avoiding having to search for a lawyer who works for ‘no win, no fee*’ on Rainham motorcycle cases is to be very aware of hazards. So what exactly is a hazard? Basically, it is anything that could put a motorcyclist at risk such as another vehicle, an animal, a pothole or another object. Motorcyclists need to choose a position in the road that allows them to see well ahead and spot any hazards that may be there. The second step in hazard awareness is selection of the appropriate speed – travelling too fast results in the motorcyclist being unable to react to a hazard quickly. Motorbike collisions occur most often close to the rider’s home because the roads are familiar and familiarity reduces concentration.
- Overtaking – many people end up having to hunt for a lawyer who handles ‘no win, no fee*’ on Rainham cases because they have been in an accident involving unsafe overtaking. Many motorbikes are hit by car drivers who have not checked the road properly before overtaking. However, motorcyclists also have to overtake safely. A motorcyclist has to weigh up many factors in a short period of time before they overtake including speeds and positions of other vehicles.
- Cornering – a motorcyclist must be able to corner safely. They cannot correct poor cornering when they are half way around by braking because this will result in them losing control. If there are warning signs then they need to be heeded – there could be added hazards like a wet road, a drain cover or leaves.
- Filtering – this is the process of overtaking slow moving vehicles in a traffic jam. It is perfectly legal as long as it is undertaken with care. However it is not legal where there is a no overtaking sign or double white lines in the middle of the road and you have to cross a solid one closest to you.
- Junctions – many motorbike accidents at junctions and motorcyclists can help themselves to be seen by wearing bright clothing, using lights and using their horn.
