SCV Personal Injury Attorney | Motorcycle Accidents | The Mason Law Firm | Mason Rashtian

Often times, a motorcycle accident results in serious injuries or death.  Statistics reveal that for every mile traveled in 2006, there were 35 times more deaths resulting from motorcycle accidents than from car accidents.  The reason for the severity of injuries in motorcycle accidents is attributed to one fact: motorcycles provide less protection in a crash when compared with other vehicles.

In many accidents involving motorcycles and cars, trucks or buses, the motorcycle is generally struck head-on as opposed to the rear or the side.  In such head-on collisions, the chance of sustaining a serious injury or death dramatically increases because the motorcyclist is generally thrown from his bike due a lack of seat belt.

Sometimes, a motorcycle accident occurs when a car makes a left-hand turn in front of a motorcyclist, striking the motorcyclist in the process or forcing him/her to swerve to avoid an impending collision.  This type of accident generally occurs because the driver of the vehicle failed to see the motorcycle due to its size or did not expect a motorcycle to be approaching or passing on the left.  The same may also occur when a vehicle is making a right-hand turn, but this type of accident occurs less frequently.

Another cause of motorcycle accidents could be attributed to lane splitting.  This occurs when a motorcyclist drives between two lanes of traffic where cars are stopped or are moving slowly.
