Motorcycle Accidents in California

Motorcycle accidents in California lead to many serious injuries every year. A California motorcycle accident is far more likely than other types of accidents to result in injuries to riders. It is estimated that about 80% of all motorcycle collisions cause injuries to those involved, with many of the injuries being serious and requiring extensive medical care. The cause of every crash will be closely investigated by police in order to determine how it took place. Many crashes occur because of negligent drivers who intentionally or recklessly fail to follow traffic safety laws. These drivers have little regard for the safety of others on the roadway, and when they cause a crash they should be held legally responsible.
