Motorcycle Accident Injuries
California is one of the leading states in motorcycle accidents, a good portion of which involve fatalities. In 2017, 16,505 motorcycle accidents occured in California, resulting in 15,527 injuries and 541 deaths. Motorcyclists are killed 26 times more often than passenger car riders on a per mile basis. The frank truth is, motorcyclists are at greater risk of substantial harm than car drivers.
The vast majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by another driver’s negligence. If you’ve suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident you have the right to recover compensation that covers all of your medical treatment, lost income and pain and suffering. The injury attorneys at Roberts | Jeandron Law are themselves licensed motorcyclists and will fight to recover every bit of compensation their motorcycle riding clients need, deserve and are entitled to.
Motorcyclists suffer far more serious injuries in accidents than their vehicle driving counterparts, who are protected by the metal exterior of their cars and trucks. Broken bones are a common motorcycle accident injury, but more concerning, and just as common, are brain injuries, even when wearing a helmet.
Because of the serious nature of injuries in a motorcycle crash, motorcycle injury cases have a higher value due to increased medical bills and lost income. Common serious motorcycle injuries include:
- Head and neck injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries (with or without helmet)
- Lower-extremity injuries
- Internal injuries
- Road rash
- Facial fractures (with or without helmet)
- Facial disfigurement (with or without helmet)
Even if you can get up and don’t feel injured, always be seen by a doctor if you’ve been in a motorcycle crash. Particularly if you feel dizzy or nauseous after a crash you need to see a medical professional as you may have suffered a mild traumatic brain injury. Let emergency responders examine you on scene, and if they recommend transport to a hospital, listen to the professionals and go.

5 Most Common Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents come in many forms, with some being far more serious than others. Head-on collisions are the most severe, and likely to cause permanent injuries and loss of life. Five causes of motorcycle crashes that are quite common in the streets of California.
- Head-on collision
- Lane-splitting accidents
- Corner-turning accidents
- High-speed motorcycle crashes
- Lane-switching crashes
Even when a motorcyclist is extremely careful, taking all precautions, if the driver next to a cyclist is not paying attention or blatantly disregards the rules of the road, it’s the innocent motorcyclist who suffers gravely.
