Motorcycle accidents in California are more common than one would think. Motorcyclist deaths occurred 27 times more frequently than fatalities in other vehicles.
Purchases of motorcycles are on the rise and so are motorcycle accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), riders who survive may suffer permanent disability from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries causing quadriplegia or paraplegia, traumatic amputation of limbs and chronic pain syndromes.
A motorcycle accident has the potential to cause catastrophic injuries. NHTSA statistics show that motorcyclists are more than 30 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a collision. These accidents claim thousands of lives each year and the number of motorcyclist fatalities has increased over the years. The U.S. Department of Transportation reports the number of registered motorcycles on the nation’s roads has increased from fewer than 5 million to more than 8 million, resulting in an additional 1,500 riders a year being killed nationwide.
Victims of motorcycle crashes are entitled to compensation for property damage, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering (past and future), and permanent injury or disfigurement
We understand the inherent dangers of being on the road with cars and trucks. The increasing popularity of motorcycle riding, especially in the warm southern California sunshine, means more riders are facing the risk of being involved in a serious or fatal crash. When an accident happens the motorcyclist is often the one who is wrongfully blamed.
Motorcycle crashes victims are often immediately transported to an emergency room. The rider may not have the opportunity to explain what happened to the investigating police officer. The police officer is likely to obtain the facts of the accident from the other driver, the driver’s passenger, or witnesses who may not tell or know the complete story. The police investigation may be inaccurate and jeopardize the motorcyclist’s claim. Motorcycle crashes are almost never routine and are vigorously defended by insurance companies.
