Southern California Motorcycle Accidents
A motorcycle accident is often a very serious event. The motorcycle rider has very little protection from the impact of a collision. A rider is more likely to be ejected from the motorcycle in a high-speed impact. This, of course, leaves them extremely vulnerable as we see in this crash. A motorcycle helmet helps with safety but it does not guarantee anything in the event of a serious crash.
If a motorcycle rider is hurt in a crash that is not their fault, they may have a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. Many drivers do not take necessary safety precautions when it comes to motorcycles. They will follow the motorcycle too closely or will try to turn in front of an oncoming rider. This can lead to serious and even fatal crashes.
