Motorcycle accidents are climbing across the state of California, causing serious injuries and fatalities to many parties. If you or a loved one have been involved in one of these accidents, you might understand how difficult of a time it is to experience one of these accidents. Motorcyclists experience less protections than those in other motor vehicles, so the injuries tend to be more catastrophic in nature.
