Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in California
A motorcycle crash can cause severe and devastating consequences for victims. When a crash happens, it is likely to lead to serious injuries for the rider. Motorcyclists have little protection from the force and impact of a crash, and it only takes a split second for negligent driving behavior to result in a serious collision. Unfortunately, the motorcyclist is often the innocent victim of another driver’s careless actions. Drivers who fail to follow traffic laws are one of the most common causes of serious motorcycle crashes. Each accident will be carefully investigated in order to determine how it took place.
Motorcycle accidents in California make up about 20% of all total fatalities on California’s roadways. There is also about an 80% likelihood that a motorcycle crash will result in injuries for the victim. Following a crash, victims of these accidents are often experiencing many different emotions and may be unsure where to turn next.
