Motorcycles are designed to give riders freedom and a feeling of closeness to nature and the open road. However, this design also means that those who ride motorcycles are unprotected in many ways, should there be a collision. During a crash, riders are often thrown off the seat and may land on the road, sliding on cement which scrapes through clothing and causes cuts and abrasions. If a rider doesn’t wear a helmet, there can be serious brain injuries. Motorcycles have no airbags or other protective devices, so motorcycle riders have nothing to shield them from the impact of a crash. As a result, injuries are often devastating. The Roberts Law Firm of Newport Beach, California understands the unique dangers of motorcycle travel and is equipped to be your advocate in your motorcycle accident case.
