Motorcycle Accidents in California
Thousands of motorcycle accidents occur every year in California because of negligent driving, which usually means drivers aren’t checking their surroundings before they switch lanes or make turns in front of oncoming motorcycles. Usually this occurs when drivers are using their cell phones, speaking to passengers, searching for lost items, eating, grooming, driving under the influence, or driving fatigued. Because motorcyclists are smaller and harder to see, it’s vital that drivers check their rearview mirrors and blind spots at all times, otherwise motorcyclists will continue to be put at risk.
Once the police determine who will be held liable for this accident, the motorcyclist may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit with the help of a California personal injury attorney.
