Motorcycle riders experience both joys and threats not met by most other motorists. They are able to enjoy the freedom that a bike brings, but they are also exposed to a variety of dangers that car and truck drivers rarely worry about.
According to the Insurance Information Institute, more than 80 percent of motorcycle accidents cause injuries or death. In 2014 alone, approximately 4,500 motorcycle crashes resulted in fatalities and more than 91,000 motorcyclists were injured in collisions that year according to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Severe head and brain trauma is the leading cause of fatal motorcycle accidents and serious injuries.
Where do Motorcycle Accident Injuries Occur Most Frequently?
- On freeways. Tens of thousands of cycles are on our interstates at any given time.
- Making lane changes. California law allows motorcycles to move between lanes in heavy traffic. But other vehicles refuse to give the yield of way. Cycles get caught between vehicles and serious injuries occur.
- At intersections. Making a left-hand turn in Los Angeles is an adventure night or day. Either the turning vehicle or the oncoming vehicle may be at fault. When you are injured during one of these perilous moments, you need astute, experienced representation now.
