Motorcycle Accidents in California
According to research, whenever a motorcycle collides with a passenger vehicle or another larger type of vehicle, there is a good chance that the motorcyclist will be injured or even killed. Motorcycle accidents tend to cause these severe injuries because motorcyclists have very little protection from harm aside from their helmet. These accidents continue to increase in California due to the fact that drivers continue to drive negligently despite the fact that they are supposed to look out for the well-being of these more vulnerable parties.
