7 Safety Tips for Motorcycle RidersIf you own a motorcycle you know that summer is prime time for enjoying a ride. However, nice weather means more cars and pedestrians on the road as well. Protect yourself from a motorcycle accident by observing these 7 tips:

  1. Check your bike before every ride. Make sure tires are properly inflated, brakes are working properly and all fluid levels are where they need to be. This will reduce the risk of a mechanical failure on the road that can cause an accident.
  2. Always wear a helmet. Look for the DOT (Department of Transportation) sticker when buying a new helmet to ensure it meets the latest safety standards. Be sure your helmet fits properly. It’s also important to either have a visor or goggles and protection from sun glare so that you can clearly see what’s happening on the road.
  3. Obey all traffic laws. Don’t go faster than the speed limit and avoid risky maneuvers such as weaving in and out of lanes or not leaving adequate space to pull in front of a car or truck.
  4. Anticipate the actions of others. It’s key to stay vigilant and watch all vehicles and pedestrians around you. Don’t assume they see you and that they’ll make the right moves. This is especially important at intersections where many bikes vs. motor vehicle accidents occur.
  5. Leave extra space. Keeping a distance between yourself and the vehicles ahead of you gives you more time to react to erratic or unexpected events on the road.
  6. Pay attention to road conditions. Be on the lookout for potholes, fallen branches, debris that’s dropped off the back of the truck or oil spills. A motorcycle has less contact with the road than a car and is more likely to skid or lose control when encountering an obstacle.
  7. Never ride under the influence. Not only is this illegal, it greatly impairs your balance, alertness, judgement and ability to ride safely.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

Herb T. Testimonial

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

Jennifer T. Testimonial

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.
