A motorcycle accident can result in serious injuries, property damage and other damages that can leave a serious financial and emotional impact. When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, the risk of suffering injuries is much higher than the occupants of the motor vehicle due to the rider’s level of exposure on a motorcycle.
A motorcyclist has very limited protection in the event of an injury, and even a motorcyclist wearing a helmet and fully padded motorcycling gear is at risk of injury. If you have been injured in the greater Los Angeles area, call our firm.
Many motorcycle accidents are the result of the other motorists’ failure to look out for motorcyclists while changing lanes and making left turns, defective motorcycle parts or equipment, or dangerous road conditions.
Wearing helmets can significantly reduce the risk of suffering a head injury in a motorcycle accident, but it is no guarantee against these injuries. Even a helmeted motorcyclist can suffer certain types of brain injury.
