MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS ATTORNEY
Motorcycle Accident Information
If you are a motorcyclist, you are among the most vulnerable motorists on the roadway. You are protected by very little, other than the clothes on your back and the protective gear you are wearing. There is no metal frame or airbag to cushion a blow and no seat belt to prevent you from getting thrown on the roadway. When a motorcycle accident does occur, it often results in serious injuries or even death for the rider and his or her passengers.
When you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, you are faced with a number of challenges – physical, emotional and financial. Dealing with lost income and mounting medical and hospitalization costs can be a daunting challenge. This is a time when it is crucial you understand your legal rights and options. Please contact our Anaheim motorcycle accident lawyers at (714) 535-5090 to obtain more information about pursuing your rights.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
According to the NHTSA, in 2013, 4,668 people died in motorcycle crashes in the United States. Here are some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Anaheim & California:
Head-on collisions: According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), head-on collisions account for more than half of all fatal motorcycle accidents nationwide. These crashes almost always involve a passenger vehicle and more often than not, the driver of the passenger vehicle is at fault.
Left-turn accidents: These types of accidents are responsible for about 42 percent of motorcycle accident fatalities. They occur most often because a vehicle making a left turn at an intersection fails to yield the right-of-way to an oncoming motorcyclist.
Dangerous roadways: Motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable to roadway dangers such as potholes and uneven pavement. A motorcyclist may also lose control when there is debris or spills on the roadway.
Driver negligence: When the driver of a passenger vehicle is impaired, distracted, speeding or otherwise negligent, motorcyclists are in great danger. These types of negligence on the part of the other driver often cause serious injury motorcycle crashes.
Dangerous lane changes: This is yet another common cause of motorcycle accidents when drivers fail to look out for motorcycles before making a lane change.
