California Motorcycle Accidents

In 2020, California had the highest number of registered motorcycles in the country, with more than 785,000. Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable travelers on the road. Because they are almost totally unprotected while traveling, they are at a higher risk of sustaining serious injuries or even losing their lives if they become involved in a traffic accident with another vehicle. 

Approximately 5,000 people lose their lives in motorcycle accidents per year. According to information from national motorcycle statistics, about half of the motorcycle collisions that occur in the United States take place due to drivers failing to yield the right of way to motorcyclists. Motorcyclists often sustain debilitating injuries in traffic accidents that keep them in the hospital for days, weeks, or longer.
