Los Angeles County had the highest number of reported motorcycle accidents in the state, with 2,803. Nearly every motorcycle crash will lead to injuries for the victim. Statistics indicate that at least 80% of motorcyclists will be hurt when they are involved in crashes on California’s roadways. In most cases, the injuries are not minor. Motorcycle accidents are high-impact collisions that carry a great risk of death or serious injury for those involved. Every motorcycle accident will be closely investigated by authorities in order to determine the cause and who should be held responsible.

Under California law, motorcycle accident victims may have valuable legal rights following a crash. In cases where the other driver caused the accident, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible.
