As motorcycles are becoming more and more popular in California, the number of accidents per year is slowly rising. As a result, motorcyclists are at a heightened risk of serious bodily injury or death. In fact, motorcycle accidents account for a disproportionately higher rate of injury or death in comparison to other highway accidents. National statistics show that while motorcyclists make up only two percent of all drivers, approximately five percent of all accident-related fatalities consist of motorcycle fatalities. This is mostly true because motorcycles fail to provide the same level of protection as automobiles due to the lack of seatbelts, doors, airbags, and other safety devices.
Often, motorcycle accidents are caused by other motorists on the road rather than the motorcycle riders themselves. Motorcycle accidents are the result of a variety of factors, such as defective motorcycle products, road hazards, weather, drunk drivers, and an inability to see motorcyclists on the road.
It is extremely important to take the appropriate steps to prevent and protect yourself from a motorcycle accident injury. Riders should make sure to wear helmets, brightly colored and protective clothing, and use appropriate signals and headlights to make themselves visible to other drivers on the road.
