In many cases, motorcyclists suffered severe trauma to the head, internal organ injuries, and severe compound fractures. These and other injuries can require extensive medical treatment and force victims out of work extensively.
Many motorcycle accidents reported in California take place as a result of driver negligence. Leading factors in these accidents include:
