As the number of motorcyclists in Dallas-Fort Worth increases, so do the number of traffic accidents which either severely injure the motorcyclist (and their passenger) or else result in a tragic fatality. The problem is largely that most motorists aren’t used to driving around motorcycles and frequently forget to check for bikes before making a turn or changing lanes.
By no means am I suggesting that motorcyclists are the cause of the wrecks which leave them with permanent and disabling injuries such as spinal cord injuries, paralysis, amputation and traumatic brain injury. As a Fort Worth motorcycle accident lawyer, I know that it’s actually very nearly always the opposite. Very rarely is the motorcyclist actually at fault.
It is important that motorcyclists protect themselves as much as possible before attempting to navigate the dangerous and often hostile traffic of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. This doesn’t just mean investing in the best DOT-certified helmet you can find (although I definitely recommend doing so) it also means getting properly trained so you not only know how to ride safely, but also how to avoid potential hazards and minimize your chance of injury in the event of an unavoidable collision.
There are a number of motorcycle rider safety courses on offer throughout the DFW metroplex, both for novice and experienced riders. I’ve compiled a list of some of these training centers, located from Denton to Burleson, and from Boyd to Cedar Hill.
