California Motorcycle Accidents

We hope that the motorcyclist injured in this crash recovery quickly.

Motorcycle accidents happen daily in California.  Motorcyclists often ride as a hobby and for enjoyment.  Some people use a motorcycle as their primary mode of transportation.  Motorcycles can bring many thrills.

The fact remains, however, that it is dangerous to ride a motorcycle.  A 2013 report from the California Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System indicates that over 11,000 motorcycle collisions occurred in the state that year.  Of those collisions, nearly 500 people were killed.  California has the highest number of registered motorcycles of any state in the country, with more than 800,000.

Due to this, motorcycle accidents are a frequent occurrence.  In a motorcycle accident, it is important to determine negligence.  If a motorcycle rider is hurt by the negligence of another, the rider will have a claim for personal injury.  In this Eureka accident, further investigation is needed to determine whether the rider may have a negligence claim against the vehicle driver.
