Motorcycle Accident Injuries in and Around Los Angeles County

Motorcycle accident victims usually suffer far more serious injuries than drivers or passengers of automobiles. That’s because motorcyclists are exposed. They have no steel body with crumple zones. Motorcycles don’t have air bags, and they don’t have seat restraint systems either.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

After an accident with a motorcycle, other drivers often say that they either didn’t see the motorcycle, or they didn’t see it until it was too late. When accidents are caused by other drivers, the most common scenario is a driver making a left turn in front of a motorcycle while the motorcycle is traveling straight ahead. Here are some other common causes of motorcycle accidents in and around Los Angeles:

  • Changing lanes into a lane occupied by a motorcycle.
  • Rear-end crashes.
  • Drivers disobeying red lights or stop signs.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or a combination of the two.
