Understanding Motorcycle Accidents
According to a news report released in May of 2018, “…406 bikers were killed on [California] state roads [in 2017], a decrease of almost 30 percent from the 586 who died in 2016 and far better than the 5.6 percent drop nationwide.” The Mercury News further stated that “California is the only state to legalize lane splitting, where motorcyclists can cut between lanes of traffic at speeds below 50 mph, and [that] some bikers say motorists are paying more attention to the lanes when they drive.”
However, even the most careful rider can fall victim to a motorcycle accident. Given its anatomy and lack of support, “a motorcycle lacks the crashworthiness and occupant protection characteristics of an automobile.” This, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports, contributes to the “more than 80 percent of all reported motorcycle crashes [that] result in injury or death to the motorcyclist.” Some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries include brain, neck and head trauma, fractured limbs, concussions, cuts, internal as well as external bleeding, scrapes, and rashes.
