Assisting Injured Victims Throughout California
Motorcycle accidents can be devastating—because motorcycles offer
fewer protections for riders than cars and other vehicles, collisions
often result in extensive injury. Unfortunately, these types of accidents

motorcyclists on the road. If you or a loved one was involved in a motorcycle

death, our firm is here to help.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents are often the fault of other drivers. Motorcycles
are smaller and faster than cars and drivers do not always look for motorcyclists
before changing lanes, turning, or stopping at red lights. Additionally,
debris and unsafe road conditions are typically far more dangerous for
motorcyclists than the average auto driver.
Some common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
Sudden stop collisions – This occurs when a vehicle rear-ends a motorcycle rider from behind.
This can cause the rider to be catapulted off their bike leading to severe injuries.
Collisions with cars and trucks – Anytime a vehicle collides with a motorcycle.
Single motorcycle accidents – Whether you’re an experienced or novice bike rider, you
are susceptible to any form of accident. These accidents can happy anytime,
anywhere and riders should be ready at all times in case an accident does occur.
Open door accidents – Many drivers do not keep an open eye out for motorcycle riders
lane-splitting or riding normally through traffic. When a motorcycle rider
lane-splits between vehicles, the chances of a random vehicle opening
their door in the middle of the road and hitting you is a possibility.
This type of accident can send the rider flying off the bike or worse,
die from severe injuries.
Road rage and aggressive maneuvering – Often times road rage occurs because motorists grow impatient
or because one wants to intimidate the other for petty reasons. This can
occur when motorists try to intentionally block motorcycle riders from
Hazardous weather and highways – Rain, snow, sleet, hail, fires, oil slicks, potholes and debris
on the road are all contributors to
Nearly all motorcycle accidents are serious. You may be suffering not only
from painful physical injuries, but financial stress due to mounting medical
bills, lost wages, and inability to return to work. These are all compounded
by the emotional trauma of suffering a devastating accident.
Safety Reminders for Motorcyclists
- Stay vigilant at all times and always wear bright noticeable gear
- Don’t become overzealous with your motorcycle and start trying to
do dangerous maneuvers in traffic
- When at a complete stop- make sure you are paying attention to approaching vehicles
- Do not cut off vehicles while in moving traffic - you may get clipped in
the rear and spin out of control or worse
