California has more licensed motorcyclists on the road than any other state. It’s no wonder: California weather is mild, and the natural surroundings are beautiful and diverse. Many Californians ride their motorcycles year-round, which is not often possible in states with more extreme climates.
Despite virtually ideal riding conditions, motorcycle drivers are nearly 30% more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than people in cars. About half of serious accidents take place on city streets and about half on highways. Every year in California, thousands of motorcyclists are injured and hundreds of riders lose their lives in motorcycle accidents.
Motorcyclists also face a higher risk of catastrophic injury than people in automobiles. Even with a state-of-the-art helmet and advanced protective gear, motorcycle riders remain exposed to direct physical impact with other vehicles and objects – which can result in permanent injuries or death.
For injury or damages claims, conducting an investigation as soon after the accident as possible is critical. This may include taking photos at the scene of the accident, locating video footage, or hiring private investigators to collect additional evidence. The Law Office of Bianca R.
