Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in California
Fatal auto accidents take the lives of thousands of people in California each year. Nearly 500 victims are using motorcycles at the time of their accidents. Victims who are using motorcycles are more likely to suffer severe injuries due to the fact that they only have helmets to protect them. When high speeds or other reckless actions contribute to these accidents taking place, the impact can be significant.
Unfortunately, interstates continue to be a common location for many fatal accidents that are reported in California. There are several factors that can contribute to these accidents taking place. In many cases, driver distractions lead to fatal motorcycle accidents at intersections. When drivers are not paying attention to their surroundings, they are likely not to see motorcycles in the area. We also see a significant number of fatal motorcycle crashes at intersections take place as a result of impaired driving. When drivers are under the influence, they are likely to lack the ability to maintain control of their vehicle in order to avoid a collision. In addition, poor road conditions can lead to serious accidents occurring that involve motorcycles.
