Why motorcyclists are in danger

With the weather warming up in sunny California, it is the ideal time of year to hit the road on two wheels and get away from your mundane problems and obligations. However, there is always the unfortunate possibility that you may find yourself with a whole new set of problems that are anything but mundane. Even the most careful and attentive motorcycle driver is at risk when around other drivers or on roads that are ill-kept or poorly lit.

There are far too many distractions enticing drivers these days and a driver who falls prey to temptation for even a moment can easily miss seeing a motorcycle in its surroundings. That oversight can prove catastrophic for the motorcyclist and can even result in death.

Sometimes a motorcycle driver is injured due to a poorly maintained road. Other times a commercial vehicle that is operated by an overly fatigued driver or that sustains mechanical failure can create a threat to a nearby motorcycle and its operator.

If you or your loved one was injured or killed in a motorcycle accident and you believe the blame may fall toward an external source, you may have recourse in your pursuit of justice. No one should shoulder the burden of the fallout without proper remuneration. Medical expenses, lost wages, vehicle replacement, rehabilitation and even funeral expenses can be disastrous and impossible to add to the emotional burden the family is already suffering. A California motorcycle accident attorney may be able to identify all avenues of compensation for monetary and nonmonetary damages suffered.
