San Diego motorcycle accidents impact hundreds of families every year. They’re heartbreaking, costly – and preventable.
The experienced San Diego motorcycle accident lawyers at Cellino & Barnes have helped many California motorcycle accident victims get the compensation they needed after being injured by a negligent driver
The most common motorcycle crashes occur when drivers simply don’t pay attention, but other factors also play a role:
- Turning: Vehicles making left-hand turns are associated with the most motorcycle accidents, accounting for over 40% of all incidents.
- Speeding: Speed is one of the most common factors in all types of accidents, but they’re especially dangerous when motorcycles are sharing the road. Riders have fewer protections than drivers, and vehicles traveling at high speeds vastly increase their risk of being seriously injured, or killed.
- Lane Shifting: Many drivers do not spend enough time checking their blind spots for other vehicles, including motorcycles. Since bikes are smaller, they can often get caught in a driver’s blind spot as they merge or change lanes. These occur most frequently on highways, where high speeds are also a factor.
