Motorcycle Accidents in California
More than 35 motorcycle accidents take place every day in California that result in injuries. These incidents add up to thousands of people being hospitalized annually with serious injuries that impact their lives forever.
In most cases, motorcyclists are hurt in accidents as a result of drivers who are negligent. Many accidents take place at busy intersections across the state.
There are several reasons why we continue to see so many accidents take place at intersections in California. In many cases, drivers simply failed to yield the right-of-way to other motorists. When drivers are reckless and will turn out in front of vehicles, they can cause serious accidents that leave victims with significant pain and suffering.
In other cases, we see drivers who run red lights at intersections or pass through stop signs. When drivers disregard traffic control devices, they can crash into other vehicles that do have the right of way to travel. Unfortunately, these accidents are often devastating as it often results in rollover accidents or ejections.
