California Motorcycle Accidents
In 2020, California had more registered motorcycles than any other state with 785,000. Motorcyclists are completely unprotected while traveling, which makes them the most vulnerable people on the roadway. They are more likely to be seriously injured or even lose their lives if they get involved in a crash.
Each year, roughly 5,000 individuals lose their lives in motorcycle accidents in the United States. Approximately half of the motorcycle wrecks reported in the US are caused by drivers who fail to yield the right of way to bikers. Motorcyclists usually suffer severe or even deadly injuries in traffic collisions. When they are admitted into the hospital, they usually get stuck there for weeks or longer. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you may be wondering where you can turn for help.
