Motorcycle Accidents Are Completely Different
From automobile accidents. For starters, they are often more devastating. Motorcycle riders are not encased in a protective cab, meaning that there is no barrier between their bodies and the road. Also, with the motorcycle laws being so liberal in the state of California, motorcycle accidents are common and often disastrous. Many car and truck drivers are not vigilant about checking for motorcycle riders, and between lane-splitting, blind spots, and distracted driving, many accidents are just waiting to happen.
Motorcycle accidents often result in great personal injury. Cuts, scratches, broken bones, road rash, brain injuries, nerve damage, loss of limbs and loss of life are all common. Fortunately, Abogados Campeones are experienced in working with riders suffering from personal injury following a crash. The attorneys on our team are well versed in California motorcycle law, and we will work hard on your behalf to ensure you are justly compensated.
Common Accident Causes:
When it comes to automobile accidents that result in personal injury, negligent driving is often the cause. When it comes to motorcycle accidents, there are more factors involved.
Below is a list of common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Sudden Stops: Sudden stops in traffic are very common in California. These stops, which sometimes result in a mild fender-bender between cars, can result in a motorcycle rider flying off of his or her bike and sustaining injury.
- Hazardous Weather/Road Conditions: Bad weather and ill-maintained roads present a significant risk to motorcycle drivers, since they are completely exposed to the road and the elements.
- Inexperienced Riders: Riding a motorcycle is not easy. More often than not inexperienced or reckless riding can result in a single motorcycle accident.
- Open Door Accidents: Lane-splitting is legal on California highways, which means that motorcycle riders moving between cars run the risk of having a car door open suddenly in their path, sending them flying off of their bike.
