Although motorcyclists in California and across the country have the same rights to use the roadway, they often face more risk of being injured in an accident. Because of their decreased size and relative lack of physical barriers, an accident between a motorcyclist and a traditional motor vehicle can have significant consequences. In fact, police are currently investigating a fatal accident.
If you are an avid motorcyclist or use your bike daily to ride to school or work, you undoubtedly encounter the odd rainy day. Even in Southern California, inclement weather happens from time to time.
Motorcycles can sometimes be more difficult to see because of their smaller size. As a result, motorists need to be vigilant at all times as accidents involving motorcycles and more traditional motor vehicles can have serious, even deadly, consequences. In fact, two people in California were recently the victims of a fatal accident after they were allegedly struck by another vehicle.
After a motorcycle crash, you may wonder how you can move forward. How hard will it be to return to riding, especially after a bad injury?
There are a variety of different ways to safely and lawfully utilize California roadways. Unfortunately, those who use a motorcycle may face the increased possibility of being injured in an accident as a result of the relative lack of protection to the majority of their bodies. Because motorcycles may also be less visible due to their smaller size, other drivers must remain vigilant at all times. A recent fatal accident illustrates the potential harm such an accident can cause.
When you hear about a motorcycle crash, it is usually because the rider has collided with a car, or perhaps a tree. How did this happen? Was the driver of the car at fault? Were the road conditions unsafe? Was visibility poor?
There are a variety of different ways to utilize California roadways that are both safe and legal. Unfortunately, the actions of some put the lives of many at risk. This may be especially true when negligence causes motorcycle accidents.
