California Motorcycle Accidents

As a motorcyclist there are a number of freedoms that come with transportation that other commuters don’t receive.   In California, motorcycle riders can often be seen splitting lanes and zipping through traffic.  Their gas costs are minimal and parking is usually not an issue.  These freedoms do not come without a cost, however.  As any California motorcycle accident lawyer can tell you, operating a motorcycle leaves the motorist exposed to dangers that automobile owners take for granted. 

When riding a motorcycle you leave yourself vulnerable to all the elements around you.  The biggest danger that a motorcyclist will face are visionary hazards.  A number of motorcycle accidents continue to occur year after year because the driver of the automobile that hit the motorcycle did not see them.  Wearing a reflective vest, driving a bright colored motorcycle and using your daytime headlight are all some of the ways you can help other drivers to see your vehicle before it’s too late.

Other Factors That Could Cause Your Motorcycle Accident

Some of the other dangers that could cause a motorcycle accident include dangerous roads, insufficient riding skills, distracted or intoxicated drivers and defective motorcycles. 

Dangerous Roadways have plagued a number of roads from city streets to rural highways. For a number of vehicles on the road, potholes, small debris, oil slicks and uneven pavement are minor obstacles.  If these obstacles go unattended by city, county or state officials they could cause serious or fatal injuries to those who operate a motorcycle. 

Distracted or intoxicated drivers can easily miss a motorcyclist, making a quick lane change that could result in a serious motorcycle accident.

Once involved in a motorcycle accident in California it is important that you are aware of your rights as an injured victim.  To find out you will need to consult with a knowledgeable California motorcycle accident attorney who can help you receive a maximum recovery.
