Motorcycle Accidents in California
Motorcycle accidents in California happen tens of thousands of times per year, injuring tens of thousands of people and taking the lives of hundreds annually. In 2017, there were over 16,000 California motorcycle collisions that took place that injured more than 15,500 people and took over 500 lives. A sobering statistic concerning motorcycle accidents in the United States found that 80% of all motorcycle accidents end in injury or death every single year. On a per-mile basis, motorcycle riders are killed approximately 26 times more often than occupants in passenger cars.
These statistics prove that motorcyclists are much more at risk for catastrophic injury or death than other travelers. Being injured in a serious motorcycle collision can mean potentially debilitating pain and inevitable suffering, as well as financial burdening and stress due to outstanding medical bills and other associated costs with your accident. In the event that you or someone you love was recently injured in a California motorcycle crash that was caused by the negligence of another person, you could be entitled to significant financial compensation for your injuries and incurred losses.
Financial compensation can cover all costs associated with your recent motorcycle crash, including medical bills, mental health bills, funeral costs when applicable, and other costs. Damages in the form of pain and suffering, punitive damages, and loss of consortium can also be awarded to injured accident victims and their families depending on the circumstances of their accident. A motorcycle accident attorney in California is your best bet in collecting compensation due to injuries you sustained in a collision caused by negligence, or if you have lost a loved one due to the negligent actions of another person.
