Motorcycle Accidents in California
In 2016, 15.1% of roadway fatalities in California involved motorcycle accidents. Across the country, an estimated 5,000 riders are killed in vehicle collisions annually. Riders are 27 times more likely to be killed in a crash compared to those riding in passenger cars.
It’s common for others, including the police, to place blame for a motorcycle crash on the rider. However, a police report isn’t a binding contract. An experienced California motorcycle crash attorney knows that these crashes are often because the driver of the other vehicle was careless and turned into or hit the motorcyclist
