Motorcycle Accidents in California
Motorcycle accidents leave more than 30 people injured in California every day. These accidents add up to thousands of people suffering debilitating injuries on roadways across our state. In many cases, riders are hurt in accidents as a result of negligence. Leading factors in motorcycle accidents include:
- Drivers who open their doors without checking for motorists.
- Drivers who weave between lanes.
- Drivers who tailgate motorcyclists.
- Drivers who travel too fast for road conditions.
- Inclement weather conditions.
- Defective motor vehicles.
- Impaired drivers.
- Intoxicated motorists.
Unfortunately, any type of accident involving a motorcycle can have devastating consequences. We see thousands of people hospitalized with severe trauma to the head, severe spinal cord fractures, and even the loss of limbs. In many cases, victims struggle both physically and financially to move forward. After a motorcycle accident, victims are able to pursue legal action to seek compensation for some of the losses that they face. Even though money will not take away the traumatic experience that they were forced to suffer through, it can help them alleviate some of the costs that they face throughout the recovery process.
