Motorcycle Accidents in California

Motorcycle accidents in California have a high risk of being serious or even deadly in nature. According to data from the California Highway Patrol, a total of 13,381 serious and fatal motorcycle accidents were reported across our state in 2021. While motorcycle riding is a popular activity for many Californians, these statistics certainly underscore the risk to riders. The unfortunate reality is that many motorcycle crashes will occur because of the negligence of the other driver. Drivers who fail to see or fail to yield to motorcycles are often responsible for serious and fatal crashes. Each motorcycle accident will be carefully investigated in order to determine the cause.
