Motorcycle Accidents in California
In California in 2013 alone, over 11,000 people were involved in serious motorcycle accidents at the hands of negligent parties. Hundreds also lost their lives in that year alone due to the reckless actions of drivers who were not looking out for the well-being of others. A motorcyclist is more prone to receiving serious injuries in these accidents for a wide variety of reasons due to the fact that they have very few protections from harm. They are more likely to sustain injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, fractured bones, internal organ damage, and more.
