California may be one of the best places in the world to ride a motorcycle. We have winding canyon roads, beautiful vistas and world-famous stops to enjoy. That may be why there are more motorcyclists in the State of California than anywhere else in the country. However, riding has its risks.
Motorcycles do not have cabins, seatbelts or airbags to protect their riders. Often motorcyclists only have helmets, leather jackets and boots to fend off the dangers of the road. Worse yet, drivers often fail to notice when they are sharing the road with motorcycles. This is why motorcycle riders need extra protection when they ride. Having a reliable Redlands motorcycle accident attorney should be one of those protections.
At Dolen, Tucker, Tierney & Abraham, our veteran attorney has the experience injured motorcyclists need. James F. Tierney, III has protected the rights of the seriously injured for over 40 years. He can help you recover the compensation you need in this challenging time.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that California has around 900,000 motorcycle registrations. That is only around 3 percent of the total vehicle registrations in the state. Yet, motorcyclists make up around 15 percent of the fatal California motor vehicle accidents. Why do motorcyclists make up such a disproportionate number of roadway deaths? Here are a few of the top dangers motorcyclist face on our highways:
Due to the lack of protection and the size of cars, motorcyclist often suffer severe injuries. Some of those common injuries include:
