Riverside Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Aggressive Motorcycle Accident Law Firm Representing Southern California
California roads and highways are full of motorcycles day and night. With our perpetual good weather, our state offers ideal conditions for bikers of all ages and skill levels. Riding a motorcycle, however, remains one of the most dangerous ways to travel. Often when motorcyclists have serious accidents, no amount of protective gear can prevent injuries or fatalities. Our lawyers at Martinez & Schill LLP help victims of accidents seek financial compensation for their injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Motorcycle Accidents on Riverside Roads and Highways
All motorcyclists in California are required by law to wear a helmet. This helmet law has helped lower the motorcycle accident fatality rate in California over the last two decades, but such fatalities still occur. According to the California Highway Patrol, there were 473 fatal motorcycle collisions in 2012. Additionally, there were 11,304 motorcycle collisions involving injuries in the same year. In many of these accidents, the motorcyclists themselves were considered at fault, but in nearly half of these accidents, another party was considered at fault.
Many motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence of another party. This negligence can come in a number of different forms including:
- Violating the right of way of a motorcyclist;
- Failure to check blind spots when changing lanes; and
- Failure to look for motorcyclists when turning.
Drivers of cars, trucks, and SUVs have an obligation to share the road with motorcycles, but motorcycles are often overlooked on roadways resulting in a serious accident. Motorcyclists in accidents commonly obtain serious injuries such as:
- Broken Bones;
- Spinal Cord Injuries/Paralysis;
- Brain Injuries;
- Lacerations & Scars;
- Road Rash; and
