Motorcycle riders are 16 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries in an accident than those who drive motor vehicles.

Unfortunately, motorcyclists in California know that hit-and-run motorcycle incidents are not uncommon. Once a motorcyclist is safely out of harm's way after a hit-and-run, he or she may have many questions about what to do next.

Without another identified driver involved in the accident, they may feel like they have limited recourse.

What are some motorcycle accident causes?

When it comes to motorcycle wrecks, there are many reasons why these accidents occur. Sometimes, motorcyclists are responsible for wrecks because they were riding too fast or were not very familiar with their motorcycle. Sadly, many of these accidents occur because of reckless and careless drivers.
