Getting sick prevents people in Connecticut from working, and Adler Law Group, LLC realizes that it also leads to other serious challenges in life. For example, it increases the chances of an accident in multiple ways, and many drivers, as well as motorcyclists, cause accidents because of the symptoms they are experiencing. If you are very sick, it is important to avoid riding your motorcycle if your symptoms have the potential to interfere with your ability to focus on the road.
Unfortunately, other motorcyclists and drivers do not always heed this advice. If you regularly ride with a group of motorcyclists, the chances of an accident likely go up when another member of your group is under the weather. For example, if a motorcyclist riding in front of other motorcyclists causes an accident that involves several people, this is especially problematic.
