John Gore Visits Good Day NWA to Discuss Motorcycle Safety Month

As warmer weather returns, all of us must share our roads with motorcyclists. With this in mind, attorney John Gore of Caddell Reynolds visited Good Day NWA in May for Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. A clip of this informative segment appears below.

About the Statistics

The exposed position of a motorcyclist leaves them more vulnerable to injuries than other drivers. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 5,000 people in the U.S. were killed on motorcycles in 2017. That number accounts for 13% of all traffic fatalities that year. Overall, more than 80% of motorcycle crashes result in injury or death—and 1,876 motorcyclists who died in collisions during 2016 were not wearing a helmet.

Stay Safe

In order to avoid injury, Caddell Reynolds offers helpful safety advice:

  • Stay out of other drivers’ blind spots and consider putting reflective tape on gear.
  • Nearly 25% of riders fatally injured in accidents suffered from alcohol impairment.
  • Riders without helmets are five times more likely to sustain severe head injuries.
  • The faster you move, the longer it takes you to stop or react in an emergency.

Ride Responsibly

Caddell Reynolds urges all motorcyclists to practice responsible behavior:

  • Always check the area and signal before changing lanes.
  • Be sure to ride defensively at all times in any traffic.
  • Obey all traffic signals, road signs, and speed limits.
  • Ride with traffic and leave room around other vehicles.

I recently had to make to difficult choice to file Bankruptcy due to a life-changing heart condition at the peak of my career. It’s not an easy choice to make when you’ve managed a finance company for a living, and yet it became imperative for my survival and wellness. With horrible regret, I visited Caddell Reynolds for my first consultation. I think in a short while I knew I was on the right track. They say first impression is key, and I was placed at ease with the incredibly empathetic front desk coordinator, Yolanda. She knew I was nervous, and helped me feel welcome and informed. My attorney, was engaged in my journey, understood my pain and immediately addressed my worries with a solution. My attorney truly has treated my like an individual case, caring about my needs and why I was having to file. I had a team of excellent staff that provided a professional experience with a wonderful attitude and work ethic that has made a life changing event bearable. Brooke whom assisted my attorney is amazing and personable very attentive. The little time I had to spend in the office was great. I couldn’t recommend the Caddell Reynolds team enough- the team starts at the door with the incredible Yolanda to greet you when you walk in!
