California Motorcycle Accidents

 Costa Mesa, CA - Motorcycle Crash Critically Injures One on Placentia Ave Information from statistical reports shows that at least 516 motorcyclists lost their lives in auto collisions in California in 2014. That number rose to 566 in 2016. Motorcycle accidents in California are constantly caused by drivers who act negligently, carelessly, and recklessly while on the road. Over half of the auto accidents that involve motorcyclists are caused by driver negligence, and not on part of the motorcyclist. Most drivers fail to yield the right of way to motorcyclists and cause them grave physical harm in doing so. The most significant thing for injured crash victims and their family members to understand after being hurt in auto crashes is that they have legal rights toward financial compensation that can help them recover.

Motorcyclists may be overlooked by drivers as they can be difficult to see on the road. However, this is not an excuse for careless behavior while driving, and the reckless actions of negligent motorists have led to numerous fatalities throughout the Golden State. As an injured crash victim or a grieving loved one, it is vital to understand that you deserve compensation and justice after being hurt due to the actions of a negligent driver.
