Recognizing the Dangers Posed to Southern California Motorcyclists
As many motorcyclists who have been hurt in an accident know, riders cannot depend on car and truck drivers to always drive safely and look out for motorcycles on the road. According to the most recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, more than 34,000 motorcyclists were killed and an estimated 1,222,000 were treated in emergency rooms between 2001 and 2008. Many of these injuries and deaths involved collisions between a motorcycle and another vehicle.
The majority of accidents involving collisions between a motorcycle and a car happen at intersections, with the most frequent situation being when a vehicle turns left in front of a motorcycle, violating the motorcyclist’s right-of-way and often violating traffic controls. Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Motorists’ failure to yield to motorcyclists at freeway on and off ramps
- Motorists’ changing lanes without checking blind spots
- Generally careless and unobservant driving
- Distracted driving, such as cell phone use and texting
- Defective motorcycle equipment or mechanical issues
- Dangerous road conditions, such as potholes, debris, uneven pavement, and undivided highways
Despite that motorists cause accidents at least as often as motorcyclists, motorcyclists are often perceived as unsafe, reckless drivers, making recovery from at-fault parties and insurance companies inordinately difficult in many situations. Our Upland motorcycle accident attorney, Scot Moga, understands how to overcome the bias against motorcyclists, ultimately helping our clients recover fair and appropriate compensation for their injuries.
