Motorcycle Accidents in California

Yuba Sutter, CA – Hit-&-Run Motorcycle Crash on SR-70 near N Beale Rd Ends in InjuriesAccording to statistics, approximately 18 motorcycle accidents occur every day in the state of California. These accidents often have a devastating impact on the lives of those involved.

The unfortunate truth is that motorcyclists are nearly 30 times more likely to die from their injuries in motor vehicle accidents when compared to people in four-wheeled vehicles. Unfortunately, they are also at an increased risk of suffering significant injuries that impact their lives forever. We often see motorcyclists left with spinal cord injuries, internal organ injuries, and even the loss of limbs.

These and other serious injuries can have an overwhelming impact on the health and well-being of victims. We see countless pedestrians forced to undergo extensive medical treatment for the injuries that they have suffered. Unfortunately, there is never a guarantee that a victim will be able to recover fully.

In many cases, motorcycle accidents take place due to drivers who are reckless and negligent. When motorists fail to operate their vehicles in a responsible manner, they can cause serious harm to others. Common factors in motorcycle accidents that we see here in California include drivers who are speeding, drivers who are intoxicated, and drivers who simply failed to yield.
