Motorcycle Law

This study shows that three-fourths of the motorcycle accidents that occur involve a collision with another vehicle and it will normally be a passenger motor vehicle. In two-thirds of multiple vehicle accidents involving a motorcycle the driver of the vehicle violated the motorcycle right-of –way causing the accident. Roadway defects; potholes, pavement ridges and other defects represented 2 percent of the motorcycle accident findings.

Motorcycle accident study findings and what they mean include rider accident statistics from Long Beach. These accidents leave riders severely injured and in some cases it can even be fatal to the rider and the driver should be held responsible for their negligent act. Holding the driver responsible is done by filing a legal claim against them to recover compensation.

When bringing a legal suit against a negligent driver in Long Beach it is advisable to have an experienced motorcycle accident attorney. They have a complete knowledge of the laws that apply to motorcycle accidents, since this is different than other types of vehicle crashes.

The victim of a motorcycle accident will need time to heal from the severe injuries and this will mean loss of work too. Drivers that believe the motorcycle rider does not need to have the same courtesy that other drivers need, are the ones that motorcyclist are often involved in an accident and this driver needs to be clearly made aware of how dangerous their thoughts about motorcycles are.

The statistics don’t lie and after a collision the motorcycle accident attorney can help sort out the facts and protect the rider’s rights. More motorcycles are registered to rid on the road every year and the statistics go up, because drivers have not changed their thoughts about the bike being on the road.
