Motorcycle Accidents in California
In 2013, nearly 12,000 motorcyclists sustained injuries in California following traffic accidents. Because motorcycles are smaller than regular vehicles and can fit between two vehicles, sometimes they are hidden in a driver’s blind spot. If a driver is not careful and fails to check their surroundings before switching lanes, they might accidentally strike a motorcyclist. When these accidents occur at intersections, it’s often because drivers are either distracted and fail to yield the right-of-way to oncoming motorcyclists, or they’re rushing through an intersection and turn in front of oncoming motorcyclists.
