Motorcycle Accident in Corona
Motorcycles are a popular mode of transportation in California. As the nation’s most populous state, California also has the greatest number of registered motorcycles. While motorcycle riding can be a fun and enjoyable activity, it also comes with great risks. Each year, thousands of motorcycle accidents will occur all across California. Statistics tell us that the large majority of these crashes will result in injuries for the rider and their passenger. Motorcycles provide no protection from the impact of an accident. To make matters worse, riders are often thrown from their bikes after impact, which further increases the likelihood of injuries.
Many motorcycle crashes end with serious injuries, and they can even result in fatalities. It is fairly common for a motorcycle accident to be caused by a negligent driver. Motorists often fail to see or yield to motorcycles until it is too late to avoid an accident. These drivers can later be held legally responsible for their actions that led to the collision.
