There Is Help For Motorcycle Accident Injuries In Des Moines

Iowa law does not require motorcycle drivers or their riders to wear helmets and many choose not to do so.  However, even though not required by law, wearing a helmet is a necessity to protect yourself and your riders from serious and potentially fatal injuries.  No matter how careful you are when driving a motorcycle, other cars, trucks, and RVs will always be sharing the road and will not always keep a proper lookout for motorcycles that are easy to miss in the blind spot.  And with distracted driving due to texting, car and truck drivers who are texting are even less likely to spot a fast approaching motorcycle.  Exercise extreme caution when driving your motorcycle, or when riding as a passenger.  Always wear a helmet and drive an appropriate speed, and always make sure to be on the lookout for other vehicles who may not be on the lookout for you.
