If you are a motorcyclist driving on Southern California freeways or roadways, you have probably had one or more near accidents or even actual crashes as a result of a driver not paying attention or not seeing the motorcycle rider when a car changes lanes or makes a turn directly in your path.
Unfortunately, a majority of motorcycle accidents result in serious injuries and death. The lawyers at the Inland Empire Law Group in Rancho Cucamonga, California, have represented motorcycle riders injured due to a negligent car or truck driver and those who were injured by motorcyclists who are inattentive or traveling at dangerous speeds.
Motorcycles Accidents Are Significantly More Likely to Be Fatal than Car Accidents
Approximately 4,000 motorcyclists are killed every year. Additionally, 80,000 motorcycle accidents injure riders in traffic accidents. It is easy to understand the severity and frightening frequency of such accidents. Per vehicle mile traveled in 2004, it has been shown that motorcycle drivers are 34 times more likely to die than a passenger in a car.
While motorcycles only account for 2% of registered vehicles, they account for 10% of all traffic deaths.
