According to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, in 2017 there were over 955,000 registered motorcycles in California. California regularly registers more motorcycles than any other state and fortunately for Lancaster motorcycle enthusiasts, Antelope Valley is prime motorcycle riding country. The downside to our state’s large motorcycle population is that we also encounter a lot of motorcycle accidents. Since motorcyclists have such little protection, motorcycle injuries can be catastrophic. In 2017, California saw over 400 motorcycle accident fatalities. With safe bike riding practices, some motorcycle accidents can be avoided.
Our Lancaster motorcycle accident experts at Compass Law Group, PC. have researched motorcycle statistics regarding accidents, causes, helmet use, and motorcycle safety precautions. Based on that research we have come up with a list of motorcycle safety measures and precautions that should be taken to help you avoid accidents and reduce your injuries in the event of an accident.
If you follow these tips, your chances of getting into a motorcycle accident are greatly reduced. Unfortunately, you still are not able to control the other drivers on the road. Even when you implement safe driving practices, you are still at the mercy of the other drivers.
If you have been in a motorcycle accident, most importantly be sure to seek necessary medical attention. Contact police if they have not been called and if possible, get witness contact information. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else, contact a Lancaster motorcycle accident attorney with the Compass Law Group, PC. to schedule a consultation. Our motorcycle accident team will conduct a factual investigation to gather facts that support your case, speak to witnesses, review accident reports, and negotiate with insurance companies. We will work to see that you are fully compensated for your injuries and damages.
Hiring the right personal injury attorney can often make the difference between getting the maximum settlement to account for your medical care, damages and lost wages or getting short changed or even having your case dismissed completely.
