(Personal Injury, Accidents)
Motorcyclists are more likely to be injured or even killed in the event of an accident compared to the occupants of a passenger vehicle. Throughout the years 2014 to 2018, the state of California has seen 2,655 fatal motorcycle accident crashes. California has an alarming rate of motorcycle accidents that occur in comparison to any other state, which is why there are also many more motorcycle accidents that occur as a result. In cases of wrongful death in motorcycle accidents, drivers are held financially responsible for any fatal crashes whether they have been driving while under the influence or not. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, you will most likely have a wrongful death claim that is feasible.
The state of California ranks in the top 15 states with the highest amount of motorcycle accident-related deaths and averages out to 666 deaths per year. It is also known that 70% of motorcycle accidents occur at intersections where there are many vehicles on the road that may be involved in a serious collision. Some causes of motorcycle accidents include failing to yield the right of way, impaired driving, aggressive driving, distracted driving, speeding, motorcycles being the blind spot of large vehicles, road hazards, left hand turns, etc.
